So, we will start your Athens City Tour in Syntagma Square (Constitution Square) where the Greek Parliament, the Presidential Guards and the tomb of the Uknown Soldier are located. We'll continue towards the premises of the University, the National Library and the Presidential Residence (Ex-King's Residence), that is also guarded by the Presidential Guards. We might have the opportunity to watch the Guards changing shifts, wearing their ceremonial traditional costumes.
There will be a brief stop at the Panathinaiko Stadium. This is the place where the first modern Olympic Games took place in 1896. Our tour will continue passing by the Temple of Zeus, towards our next visits. We will walk on The Acropolis and explore the traditional narrow streets of Plaka district!
We will make an interval of our walk in the traditional area of Plaka for a light lunch break. After that, we'll head to our private vehicle, and we will drive to the Southeast part of Attica, just a few minutes away from Athens' centre.
We'll head towards the famous Lake of Vouliagmeni (Submerged Lake). It is a wonderful geological formation of unusual natural beauty that will provide you with true moments of relaxation. The water of the Lake gushes from water springs located 50 to 100 meters beneath its surface. The water’s temperature is naturally stabilized at temperatures between 21°C and 27°C. The Lake’s water level is half a meter higher than sea level is. This creates an effect that pushes the lake's water volume towards the sea. Due to this phenomenon, its waters are constantly refreshed.
You will enjoy the beauty of this geological marvel, while you'll be getting your best fish pedicure ever by Doctor fish! This is the name of the fish species Garra rufa. The fish pedicure is a new kind of treatment for the feet. Hundreds of small fish exfoliate the dead cells of the skin. Furthermore, the nibbles of the fish act as an acupuncture treatment for the nerves that reach the soles. The procedure offers a sensation of total wellness, it is not painful at all and it offers great fun. You will witness the results from the first time.
The end of your Athens City Tour – Vouliagmeni Lake Tour – Fish Spa, you will find you returning, relaxed and joyful, back in Athens.
