      About This Athens Tour

      Odysseus, hero of Homer's epic Odyssey, was many things: courageous. Cunning. Resourceful. He was not, however, great at sticking to an itinerary. It took him 10 years to get home after the fall of Troy, delayed by seductive nymphs, a six-headed monster, and a one-eyed, man-eating giant.

      For some, that's the essence of travel – unexpected encounters that make for great adventure. And if you're that kind of traveler, this is your kind of tour. It takes you to Syntagma Square, in the heart of Athens; on the way, you'll get a helpful Athens orientation, suggestions on what to do, and your return time. Then you'll have five hours for your own personal mini-odyssey.

      Syntagma is the perfect starting point, near Parliament, the Temple of Olympian Zeus, and the stadium built for the return of the Olympics to Greece in 1896. Watch the changing of the guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, stroll through the National Gardens, or browse the boutiques and restaurants of the trendy Ermou shopping district. The Acropolis and the ancient Agora are also within reach.

      If you're really daring, Athens has one of the world's most impressive metro systems, and there's a station at the square. Plenty of taxis, too. Just allow enough time to get back; Athens traffic can be a real monster.

      Odyssey in Athens

      Taxis are relatively inexpensive in Athens, and don't be surprised if they're already occupied – drivers ask where you're going, and you may be able to share the ride. Just know that cabbies think of traffic laws as quaint suggestions, and that they often go on strike, as do transit workers; in the city that gave the world democracy, citizens demand their rights frequently and energetically.
