Modern Athens tour
Price & Duration: € 59 / 2 Hours
Athens is an open-air museum making the Segway the perfect vehicle from which to experience it! You can discover the passage from past to present with this unique tour!
Your experience begins at our office, conveniently located near the Thission. Your tour leader will start with a 30-minute training session to help you get comfortable on your Segway. Within minutes you’ll realize just how easy and intuitive it is!
Once you have your bearings – we’ll roll through the pedestrian street around the hill of Acropolis so as to meet the “Roman” part of the city, where the temple of Zeus and the gate of Andrian stands. Then we will visit the first modern Olympic “village”, the Zappion mansion and the Panathinaikon Stadium, to discover where the first modern Olympic Games took place and then we will glide on the national gardens, to ease our minds, like kings and queens used to do!
A sure highlight of the day is the presidential guards, with their unique and meaningful uniform. Right before heading back, you will have the change to get a picture next to the guards, a must-do, here in Athens!
