What to expect?

Stop at: War Museum of Athens

First you will be driven and escorted to the Athens War Museum of the Greek Armed Forces, which was founded in 1964. The museum’s exhibition area is distributed over 4 levels, and has images of Greek history from antiquity to the present.

Stop at: Floating Naval Museum Battleship Averof

After visiting the Athens War Museum, you will be driven to the G. Averof Battle Ship Museum. The Battleship Averof, the most significant Greek naval vessel, played a crucial part in the history of the Hellenic Navy during the Balkan War (1912-1913). It was commissioned in 1911, and remained in active service for over a period of 44 years. Today, the ship stands as a monument to Greece’s navy and modern history. The battle ship serves its educational purposes by hosting day visits from schools, institutions, organizations and private individuals.

Stop at: Palaio Faliro Cemetery

The last stop will be at the Phaleron War Cemetery. The Athens Memorial stands within Phaleron War Cemetery, and commemorates nearly 3000 members of the allied forces of the Commonwealth, who lost their lives during the campaigns in Greece and Crete in 1941 and 1944-1945.
