Your private chauffeur will take you to a half day Christian tour in Athens, starting early in the morning. Athens is the cradle of the Western Civilization and this city tour will most definitely prove it to you. The half day tour starts from the most important site of Athens, and one of the most important sites in the world: The Acropolis of Athens.
The Acropolis is the highlight of the city with the Parthenon being the most recognizable part of the city, and one of the trademarks of the ancient culture of Athens. After the visit to the Acropolis, the half day tour will continue taking you to the Mars Hill (Areopagus) (Acts 17:22) where Apostle Paul preached the word of the Christian God that was the new religion at the time.
The private half day tour will continue taking you to a city tour around the important sites of Athens, such as the tomb of the Unknown Soldier, the Parliament House, Presidential Palace, Panathenaic Stadium, Temple of Olympian Zeus, the Academy, the University and the National Library.
You will also visit the picturesque quarter of Monastiraki and Plaka, where you can see the Ancient Agora of Athens, which was one of the major St Paul meeting points. Here, St Paul spent a great part of his stay in Athens, trying to inform the Athenians on Christianity and give an alternative to the established religion of paganism.
You will also spend a little time wandering around the little shops in the area, before heading to the hill of Lycabettus that offers breathtaking views to the city of Athens and to the main port of the city, Piraeus, where St Paul disembarked when coming to Athens.
The private half day Christian tour will end on time for your lunch in Athens or your cruise ship.
