The city tour takes you to the marble coated Panathenaic Stadium, where the very first modern Olympic Games were held in 1896. Not far away from it rise the remaining columns of the temple of Zeus. We pass by the National Garden of Athens and the Greek Parliament, built in 1842 as the royal palace of the first king of Greece. Opposite the Parliament Constitution Square spreads, the heart of modern Athens. Along the University Avenue we see the most representative buildings of the city, such as the House of Heinrich Schliemann, the catholic church of Saint Denis, the Academy of Science, the Athens University and the National Library. Going on along the Stadiou Street we can see the Square of the National Reconciliation and the Historic Museum. Then the tour goes by the byzantine church of the Virgin Mary the Savior, the evangelic church of Saint Paul and the Arch of Hadrian.
The extended city tour can take you northwards along the Queen Sofia Boulevard lined by historic buildings which house embassies and museums, to the top of the Lycabetus hill, the highest Athens hill with the best view of the city, and to the main Olympic Complex which hosted the Olympics of 2004.
Then it goes on southwestwards to Piraeus, the biggest port of Greece with its three natural harbors and then to the southeast all along the Athens Riviera with its organized sandy beaches, little bays, marinas and nice restaurants and cafes.
