If you are a first-time visitor in a short-trip, trying to check out all the urban landmarks might get overwhelming! This tour is suitable for architecture and history buffs as well as lovers of aesthetics, who wish to have an inspiring morning during their stay in Athens! This special tour will do a big part of the job and offer you a great introduction to Athens! After the establishment of Athens as the capital of the independent Greek state in 1830, an array of great cultural sites was built in the city.
During Bicentennial landmarks’ Panorama tour, we are going to explore a rich collection of modern buildings scattered around downtown Athens ,as an effort of Greek architects to combine contemporary international trends with a signature of Greek expression.
Together we will discover constructions of the early days of the country’s Independence, by visiting the then Royal gardens, the old Parliament, the Royal Palace, and the landmark buildings of the “Athens Trilogy”. If you wish to hear how the Greek capital’s architectural legacy met Western Europe from the 1830 on then you will greatly enjoy this morning walk with an awesome coffee break!
