Then visit the Roman Temple of Olympic Zeus, short stop for photos of the Panathinaikon Stadium (site of the first modern Olympic Games in 1896) and drive at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in front of the Parliament House on Syntagma Square. Then see views of government buildings and elegant structures dating back to the 19th century. Drive along Panepistimiou Avenue and view notable locations such as the Catholic Cathedral, the Academy, University, National Library and finally conclude your tour with a visit to the new Acropolis museum.
