The unique National Garden Tour is the perfect way to explore that part of the city where Antiquity meets the Modern Times. From the Temple of Zeus, the biggest ancient temple of the city, where the lighting of the Winter Olympic Flame takes place, to the first modern Olympic Stadium, the Kallimarmaron – “The beautifully marbled stadium”. Visit the landmarks of the city like Hadrian’s Arch, the gate to the city of Athens, as well as the Neoclassical jewels of the city, like the Zappeion Megaron, the first modern Olympic Village. Learn more about the political life of Greece with visits to the Presidential Mansion, once the Crown Prince’s Palace and the building of the Hellenic Parliament, the former royal palace of Greece, where you can also watch the ceremonial change of the Presidential Guards’ shift. And of course, don’t miss out on all the fun riding inside the National – once royal – Garden of Athens, one of the biggest and most spectacular parks in Europe.
The tour includes visits to the Temple of Ζeus, Hadrian’s Arch, the Zappeion Mansion, the Panathinaikon Olympic Stadium, the Presidential Mansion, the Parliament’s House, the National Gardens and the Roman Baths.
