The Rock of Acropolis

Sitting 500 feet above sea level, the Acropolis showcases some of the most famous architectural masterpieces of ancient Greece. It holds immense historical significance, attracting visitors from all over the world. The Parthenon, a temple dedicated to the goddess Athena, is the centerpiece of the Acropolis and dominates the Athens skyline.

Anafiotika neighborhood

This picturesque neighborhood in Athens features small blue and white houses just below the north slope of the Acropolis. They were built in 1841 and were meant to resemble the architecture of the Cyclades islands.

Original stadium of the Olympic Games

Built entirely of white marble, this stadium holds a special place in history as it hosted the first modern Olympic Games in 1896. Today, it serves as a cherished landmark where visitors come to see a glimpse into the origin of the Olympics.

Temple of Zeus

Constructed in the 6th century BCE, this was one of the largest temples in Greece, featuring a statue of Zeus. It has suffered destruction over the centuries and only a few columns stand, but it is still a popular sight for visitors who wish to learn more about ancient Greek mythology.

Was a great experience! Would do again, it was a great adventure seeing parts of the city in a faster and easy manner than walking. Even though though it was a warm day riding the bike made it seem cooler with the breeze! Tour guide was very knowledgeable! Great way to spend 3 hours.
