Our half day tour in Athens is one of the best ways to see the highlights of the city in a short time. The trip begins from your place when our chauffeur picks you up. Your first stop will be in the Acropolis of Athens, the UNESCO World Heritage Site. You will have the luck to admire the Parthenon, an over 2000-year-old building and all the other monuments of the Acropolis hill such as Erechtheion, the Temple of Athena Nike and Propylaea.
