When visiting Athens, there are the obvious tourist attractions such as The Acropolis, Acropolis Museum and the Greek Parliament. However, there is so much more to Athens that you will experience when taking this Private Accessible 8 hour Athens Shore Excursion. From the comfort of your wheelchair accessible van, you will see a part of Athens that most visitors miss while using the most wheelchair friendly routes.
One of your first stops will be Panathinaiko Stadium, the site of the first modern Olympic Games. View other must-see sights such as the Temple of Zeus, Zappeion Hall, Greek Parliament and Monument of the Unknown Soldier. Enjoy photo opportunities every step of the way, all while being comfortably chauffeured in your air conditioned, wheelchair accessible van.
Of course, no visit to Athens would be complete without a visit to The Acropolis and Acropolis Museum. When choosing this private accessible Athens shore excursion, you get the added benefit of advanced notification to allow you to use the wheelchair accessible platform lift and elevator to take you straight to the top, avoiding obstacles such as the large amount of stairs. (Please note that this lift/elevator occasionally has functionality problems. This is something that is beyond the control of the tour operator and the tour operator has no advance knowledge of mechanical problems. As such, there will be no refunds given if the lift/elevator is out of order on the day of your excursion.)
Get a taste of everyday Greek life with a visit to the Plaka neighborhood. Sitting in the shadows of The Acropolis, this historical neighborhood is known as the “Neighborhood of the Gods”. Your tour guide can offer suggestions on accessible restaurants/taverns to enjoy.
With this full day, private, accessible shore excursion of Athens, you will have plenty of time to explore all of Athens at your leisure and comfort using a wheelchair accessible van. At the end of the day, you will be safely returned to the cruise terminal to board the ship for your next adventure!
