HALF DAY ATHENS TOUR
One of our most popular tours. We invite you to discover with us the main attractions of one of the most historic cities in the world.
And of course – in such a tour – we could not miss a visit to the Acropolis, the center of Athenian democracy of Pericles, the 5th century BC. On the top of it, the magnificent monument of Parthenon dominates through the centuries, the temple with unparalleled architectural beauty dedicated to the goddess Athena, one of the 20 most important monuments of world cultural heritage. Next to it, the other ancient buildings. The Propylaea, the Erechtheion, the Temple of Athena Nike.
The monuments of the Acropolis, being in harmony with their natural environment, are unique masterpieces of ancient architecture, and express innovative correlations of rates and trends of classical art, that influenced – and continue to influence – the intellectual and artistic creation of Western civilization. The Acropolis of the fifth century. B.C. marks in the most emphatic manner the greatness, the power and wealth of Athens at the largest acne, the “golden age” of Pericles, while at the same time is a timeless example of inspiration and beacon of world civilization.
