Athens City Sightseeing Tours... Athens City Tour With Acropolis Museum

Athens is the historical capital of Europe, with a long history, dating from the first settlement in the Neolithic age. In the 5th Century b.C (the «Golden Age of Pericles») – the culmination of Athens’ long, fascinating history – the city’s values and civilization acquired a universal significance. Over the years, a multitude of conquerors occupied Athens, and erected unique, splendid monuments - a rare historical palimpsest. In 1834, it became the capital of the modern Greek state and in two centuries since it has become an attractive modern metropolis with unrivalled charm.

Cape Sounion, during the ancient times, was a significant strategic point of Athens, since it controlled the sea passage to the Aegean Sea and Piraeus. Today, the ruins of the temple of Poseidon, attract thousands of tourists on annual basis. An amazing view to the Aegean sea and a wonderful sunset makes Cape Sounio, one of the most beloved tourist destinations for daily excursions.
