Athens by Night

Drive through the picturesque marinas of Zea and Microlimano in Piraeus as your tour heads to the center of Athens and at the slope of the sacred hill where you will be able to see, admire and photo the illuminated Acropolis and the Parthenon. Your drive will then pass by some of the most important sites of Athens, such as the Constitution Square, the Monument of the Unknown Soldier, Temple of Zeus, and the Parliament.

You’ll then enter the old neighborhood of Athens the famed Plaka district from where you'll walk to the establishment for your traditional Greek dinner and folkloric show. Enjoy a variety of specialty foods including authentic Tzaztiki, a light and flavorful yogurt dip, and Moussaka, considered the ambassador of Greek cuisine. Then, get ready for the show! A life band playing and the traditional Greek bouzouki puts everyone in the mood as dancers in traditional costumes perform regional classics. After the performance, it is time to get into the act for a dancing lesson, Zorba-style! Opa!
