About
Explore Athens like a local during this 3-hour early morning tour with stops at the Acropolis and Parthenon. Avoid the crowds by starting early and wander the famous Varvakeios Market, where locals pick up their daily goods. Visit the iconic Acropolis and watch the city come to life as the day warms up. End the morning at a traditional pastry shop on Syntagma Square, where you can enjoy a delicious cheese or spinach pie and a coffee. Roundtrip transportation to and from your hotel is included.

What to expect
  • Embrace the quiet streets and deserted attractions of the Athens morning during this “early bird’s” exploration of this ancient city. Whether you’re an early riser or just looking for a way to discover an unexpected side of this busy capital of tourism, this trip is a great choice. Start your day bright and early with a morning pickup from your hotel, continuing by air-conditioned minivan to historic Varvakeios Market. First constructed in the late 19th century, this municipal market has been continuously open for over 125 years since taking the place of its predecessor following a deadly fire in 1884. You’ll find plenty of sights, smells, and sounds as you stroll through its narrow aisles, observing the piles of produce, watching the busy meat and fish vendors and people-watching the throngs of shoppers picking up their daily supplies. Continue your a.m. adventures with a visit to the world-famous Acropolis and Philoppapou Hill, both still relatively free of crowds, where you’ll get a quick introduction to these ancient sites. Once you’ve worked up an early-morning appetite, head to Chatzis pastry shop in Syntagma Square, where you can snack on a cheese or spinach pies, accompanied by Greek coffee or espresso. Return back to your hotel after breakfast to continue your day as you see fit.
