Highlights of the Athens Hop On Hop Off Bus Tour

Acropolis

A striking ancient Greek ancient citadel was built above the city of Athens sometime during the 5th century BC. The Acropolis houses the remains of several ancient buildings including the Parthenon, the Propylaea, the Erechtheion, and the Temple of Athena Nike.

The Parthenon

Located on the Athenian Acropolis, the Parthenon was a temple dedicated to the goddess Athena, who was the patroness of the city of Athens. Completed in 438 BC, it is considered the most important surviving building of Classical Greece

Acropolis Museum

The Acropolis Museum was founded in 1865 to house the archeological finds from the Acropolis and its foothills. A newly expanded museum opened in 2009 and houses the preserved excavations and over 4,000 historic artifacts across four levels.

Temple of Zeus

Better known as the Temple of Olympian Zeus, or the Olympieion, this temple dedicated to the head of the Olympian gods was once the largest temple in Greece. It was begun in the 6th century BC and completed in 131 AD, but soon fell into disrepair and ruin.

Temple of Poseidon

Located at Cape Sounion, this ancient temple to the Greek God of the Seas is believed to have been built around 700 BC. The marble pillars look most magnificent at sunset when the setting sun paints the sky in beautiful and vivid colors.

The National Archaeological Museum

The National Archaeological Museum in Athens is one of the largest museums in the world. Founded in the late 19th century, it houses artifacts and historical and cultural objects from around Greece from prehistory to late antiquity.

Syntagma Square

Also called Constitution Square, this is the central square of Athens, and is the heart of commercial activity and Greek politics. It is located in front of the Old Royal Palace, which has housed the Greek Parliament since 1934.

Agora of Athens

Located to the northwest of the Acropolis, the ancient Agora of Athens was once the city's main central public space. To the east of the agroa is the The Stoa of Attalos, which was once lined with shops but is now used as the Museum of The Ancient Agora.
