A Dutch-speaking guide leads this tour (or a guide with a Dutch interpreter). A limited number of Dutch guides and interpreters are available in this port; book early to avoid disappointment. This is not a bilingual tour; please see Panoramic Athens for the same tour guided in English.
On this panoramic tour, which involves sightseeing from the motorcoach, you will pass the Arch of Hadrian, the statue of Lord Byron, and the Temple of Olympian Zeus, which took 700 years to complete. Continuing towards Constitution Square, view the former Royal Palace, where the Evzones National Guard keep watch in their traditional costume over the Tomb of the Unknown Warrior.
See the all-marble Olympic Stadium built for the modern Olympic Games in 1896. Pass the National Gardens and drive along University Street, whose numerous neo-Classical buildings include the University and the Library. You will stop to snap a few photos at the foot of the Acropolis.
Shopping time is included at the end of the tour.
There is a walk of 180-300 yards from the ship to the motorcoach. Wear comfortable non-skid walking shoes. Tour operates subject to meeting a minimum number of participants.
