Parthenon1-640x426No trip to Athens could be complete without a trip to the Acropolis and so we have built time into the schedule to ensure you don’t miss out. We have hired coaches to take you to this iconic World Heritage Site straight after lunch on Saturday. Please note the coaches can’t get right to the top, so we strongly advise that you wear trainers or flat shoes and that you let us know if you are likely to need assistance. The climb to the top is not too steep and takes a few minutes – but you can take your time. There are steps though and the ancient stones have been worn smooth – hence suggesting ‘sensible’ footwear.

You can then either take the coach back to the Olympiad Village, or you can stay and soak up the fabulous atmosphere in the Plaka area beneath the Acropolis and wander back at your leisure via numerous historic sites. There’s a beautiful new museum at the foot of the Acropolis too that’s open until 8pm.
