The private tour starts from the center of Athens; you can see the Constitution Square, where the House of Parliament is situated, as well as other neoclassic buildings. You can watch the change of guards in front of the Memorial to the Unknown Soldier and take some nice pictures from the ceremony. Down the main avenue that crosses downtown you can see the Academy of Arts, the National Library and the University of Athens. After a couple of minutes? drive, you will see the Temple of Zeus that lies in the heart of the city and Hadrian?s Gate, a landmark of the city dedicated to the Emperor?s lover. Of course the next stop of the taxi tour will be the Kallimarmaron Stadium ? also referred to as Panathenaic Stadium ? where the first modern Olympic Games took place in 1896. A sightseeing tour in Athens is unfinished without a visit to the Acropolis and the Parthenon, where you can see the architectural masterpieces of the Athenian Golden Era. The Acropolis Rock offers not only an insight to the most important civilization of the Antiquity, but also a lovely view to the entire city of Athens. After a short walk, you can visit the small and cute Plaka neighbourhood that reflects the tradition and origins of this bustling modern city. Wander around the alleys in Plaka and the Ancient Agora where you can have dinner in one of the traditional taverns offering a view to the Acropolis, and buy gifts and souvenirs from the local stores that exist in abundance.
