Ancient Agora, Monastiraki and Plaka Tour
Our tour starts outside Monastiraki Metro Station. Our tour guide will be holding a Parthenon Tours sign. Please be at the meeting point 15 minutes prior to the departure time of the tour. We start our journey at Tzistaraki Mosque, one of few surviving examples of a mosque in Athens. We then visit Hadrian’s Library, which was the largest in Athens and with its columned façade and high surrounding walls, is built to impress. We make a stop to admire the Ancient Agora including the Stoa of Attalos, the most impressive building in the Athenian Agora. We then stroll through Avyssinia’s square where you will have the chance to purchase special items from the traditional local antique shops. We will then make a break for beverages at Monastiraki square. The tour resumes with a stop at the Roman Forum, Tower of the Winds and the Madrasah Gate. We then pass through the picturesque neighborhoods of Plaka and Anafiotika and get to know Ermou Street, the most famous commercial road in Greece. Our tour ends at Syntagma Metro Station where our guide will provide you a Parthenon Tours souvenir.
