Tourist Places In Athens

The great city of Athens is referred to as the cradle of western civilization and the birthplace of democracy. Although it is now a dazzling metropolis and hub of urban commercialization, much of Athens attractions are rooted in the classical era. Home to one of the world’s oldest mythologies and subsequent great empires, the recorded history of Athens spans over 3400 years at least.  Churches, ancient temples and ruins of vintage architectures from the Roman, Byzantine and Ottoman periods make up most of the Athens sightseeing.

The places to visit in Athens are so many that it is difficult to pick few of them and put them in a list. However, here are the Athens points of interests that one should never miss.

1. The Acropolis and the Parthenon

It is difficult to step foot in Athens and not be charmed by the looming figure of the Parthenon amidst the Acropolis, rising above the city in the distance. It is by far the best and most visited Athens tourist destination. Built, battered and rebuilt multiple times since its inception in the Neolithic times, the capital of ancient Greece now stands as a remnant of a lavish and scattered ancient metropolis. The Acropolis is centered by the architectural and mythical marvel Parthenon, the Doric temple for the city’s patron goddess Athena.

2. National Archaeology Museum

The National Archaeological Museum is the flagship museum of Greece and a must-visit Athens tourist attraction. Housed within a neoclassical building in the center of the city, the Museum takes you on a journey from the earliest Neolithic period including Cycladic and Mycenaean periods up to the classical era of Athens. Roman, Byzantine, Ottoman, Greek – there are old artifacts from every style of art. This museum is often visited along with the Byzantine Museum, the Museum of Cycladic Art and the Numismatics Museum. Each of them is unique Athens destinations in their own way.

3. Olympieion, the Temple of Zeus

Dedicated to the King of the Greek Gods and the God of Thunder, the Olympieion is the largest ancient temple in Greece. Though it often gets eclipsed by the popularity and grandeur of the Parthenon, Olympieion is certainly among the best Athens places to visit. Out of the hundred enormous columns that Emperor Hadrian had built, befitting the stature of the God himself, only 15 stands at present. But it is still enough to get a glimpse of the original grandeur of the structure.

4. The ancient Agora

The ancient Agora is an extensive arena, meant for trade and public gathering of the bygone times. The 18-metre long seat of the Archon Basileus is a central attraction, upon which the ruler sat and sentenced. This might have been the spot for Socrates’ trial in 399 BC. The temple of Hephaistos and the Church of the Holy Apostles are illustrious structures in the neighborhood. The younger Roman Agora also lies adjacent to it – another of the best places to visit in Athens, Greece.

5. The Temple of Poseidon

Facing the brilliant blue of the Aegean Sea at the Cape Sounion, the temple of the Greek God of Sea Poseidon is a unique addition to the sightseeing tours in Athens. It is not exactly in Athens but an hour’s drive away, but the effort is worth it. The eerie ambience of the big white columns on the jagged shoreline gives a desolate sense of melancholy amidst the grandeur.

    Ramkicrn's 7 days trip to Athens

    Took a week long family trip to Greece planned by Ishita and executed by Ishan from MTP vacations. Overall great experience. Pros: Ishita from sales side was quite flexible in tailoring our trip to Greece and accommodated most of my inputs towards locations, length of stay, hotels etc., Quote g
    iven was quite competitive compared to peers. Ishan from operations side stayed on top of our itinerary throughout our stay providing pickup co-ordinates, driver and stay details. Got us upgraded to better travel modes as needed to ensure our schedules won't go astray, made us positively surprised and appreciated. Was available on phone, chat through the stay to ensure our travel experience is not compromised. Cons/Improvement areas: Minor discomforts were to wait for end of the day to know exact details of next day's plans.. Though nothing went off-track majorly, couple of schedule changes were done (of course for a better experience), but weren't communicated till late. While we were able to take it in our stride and play along, might not be the case for others . Both the above are more for ppl who don't like surprises in schedules, especially bit older travelers. Sales team were able to accommodate my asks on locations, however would be great if they are forthcoming with such family friendly options for uninitiated travelers. But Overall lovely family vacation enabled by MTP team!! Keep up the good work...

    isted end to end by Vishal Thakur. It was a really an awesome experience and very smooth everywhere. Everything went very well as planned and mentioned in itinerary. Vishal - Thanks a lot for arranging this wonderful trip and coordinating with me from beginning of trip plan to end of the journey. Vishal was very much patience and very good in handling the customer and to achieve the customer utmost satisfaction and did it very well in my case. Not but not the least , TRAVEL TRIANGLE - My initial impression was bit mixed feeling to proceed with Travel Triangle for the trip (because I didnt approach through any referral, I just got it from Google with some positive reviews). But getting in touch through calls and and drafting my honeymoon plan with my travel agent Vishal my perspective is entire changed and fully satisfied. Definitely, I will consider Travel Triangle for my next International trip for sure. I am giving 5 out of 5 stars rating for the entire trip and especially for travel agent Vishal. Please continue the same.

    One of the first things someone looks for while hiring an agent is TRUST TRUTH AND SINCERITY. I must point say Prashant and Rohit from HUB HOLIDAYS went an extra mile to give us COMFORT, CONFIDENCE and COMMITMENT. An expert in their domain, helped us all along. asking for changes including the ones
    even during the trips! They were up for the challenge and went an extra mile even at 4 am in the morning. I wish them best of luck and would recommend them to one n all. 11 on 10 from our side. Much appreciate all the effort ☺️☺️

    This holiday was planned in a very short span of time. Special thanks to Rohit and Prashant in helping us out get the best deals throughout the trip. They were always available on call and whatsapp even during the entire duration of the trip. I am sure even if I had self planned the trip it couldn’t
    have been better than this. Greece is a beautiful country and there are plenty things to explore. We had a mix of adventure, history and romantic destinations on our itinerary. In all it was a good trip. Athens to Mykonos cruise trip.

    Delhi

    Karanjain's 8 days trip to Athens

    Everything was nice and comfortable out there. Just couple of points I felt could have been better :- 1. Hotel Marina:- This Hotel is very poor hotel for us to stay. Hotel rooms were very small; they provided room with 2 single beds for a couple; toilets were very dirty; location of the hotel was ba
    d. I think you should provide a better hotel going forward. Just to mention , hotels at Myconos and Santorini were the best! We enjoyed our stay there. 2. Local Transfers:- Please have the option to include local transfers- hotel to ferry and vice versa etc. This costed us a lot and a bit of hassle. 3. Delos Tour:- Inclusions say that it includes transfers/entry tickets however we were asked to pay 12Euro each for the entry. This could have been included in the overall cost to avoid confusion. Hotels at Myconos and Santorini were too good for the location.
