Your private guide will meet you at your Athens Hotel / port at the pre-arranged time. After meeting with your professional guide, start your journey in the birthplace of Western civilization. We drive along the coastal road of Saronic Gulf, where in 480 BC history’s course was changed. The small Grecian fleet managed to defeat the enormously powerful armada of the Persians.
From here, via the historic Corinthian Canal, continue on to ancient Corinth (Acts 18:1-18). It was there where the Apostle Paul came and worked, established a thriving church, subsequently sending two of his epistles now part of the New Testament. Visit all of the sites associated with his ministry: the Agora, the Temple of Apollo, the Roman Odeon, the Bema and Gallio’s Seat. The small archaeological museum here is an absolute must! After the museum, we drive to Athens. Welcome to Athens (Acts 17:15)! Travel in time, through the city with a history of more than 5,000 years!
We stars our tour with marble-capped Acropolis, the sacred rock of Athens. We will see the Parthenon that was dedicated to the goddess Athena, Propylaea, the monumental entrance to the sacred area, the temple of Athena Nike which was dedicated to Athena-Nike, the Erechtheion with its famous female figures-statues the Caryatids or maidens dedicated both to Athena and Poseidon.
The Acropolis Hill has a view of the Ancient Agora, the Tower of the Winds, Herodes Atticus Odeon, and the Theatre of Dionysus. You will have a chance to see them from Acropolis Hill.
Continue with a panoramic orientation bus tour to the highlights of modern Athens: pass by the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, the Parliament House, the Academy, the University and the National Library, the Panathenaic Stadium, Temple of Olympian Zeus, Hadrian’s Arch.
After the tour, drive back to the hotel and end of services.
