FULL DESCRIPTION


The ideal combination tour

This sightseeing tour is the perfect combination tour with which you will experience the two most important attractions of Athens. The Acropolis, one of the most famous archaeological sites and landmarks of Athens and Greece and the Acropolis Museum where the masterpieces of the Acropolis are displayed in a stunning way and will be explained expertly by our Athens Walking Tour licensed guide.

Your interesting City Tour

The tour begins inside the Syntagma metro station where you will visit the metro Museum (in 10 minutes) with very interesting archaeological artifacts from the daily life of Ancient Athenians, that came to light during the construction of the metro.
 
You will then continue on to the House of the Greek Parliament, the Monument to the Unknown Soldier and watch the changing of the guards. Your tour continues towards the National Gardens and to  the beautiful neoclassical Zappeion Hall, in front of which tower the surviving columns of the Temple of Zeus and Hadrian’s Arch, both of which you will have the opportunity to visit. From there you walk towards the Acropolis through the beautiful pedestrian walkway of Dionysiou Areopagitou.  

Your Acropolis guided tour

You will enter the Acropolis from the south slope to avoid the crowds and also to visit the Dionysus sanctuary and Dionysus Theatre built in the 5th century BC. As you begin to ascend the sacred hill a breathtaking view of the city below will unfold.
 
Your guide will give you a detailed explanation of the glorious monuments of the Acropolis such as the Parthenon, the Erechtheion, the Propylaia, the Nike Temple, the Agrippa monument and the surrounding monuments such as the Herodes Atticus Odeon, the Ancient Agora, the Observatory as well as the Philopappos, Mars and Pnyx Hills.

Time for exploring and picture taking at the Acropolis will be provided before your tour of the Acropolis Museum begins.
 
NOTE: After the first part of the tour which ends on the Acropolis at approx. 13:00 you will have time to take pictures and get to the designated meeting point for your Acropolis Museum Tour. On the way you may get a snack or a drink before you start the guided tour in the Museum at approx. 13.45 (1:45 pm).

Acropolis Museum - The Definite Must Visit

The New Acropolis Museum was designed by Swiss architect Bernard Tschumi in co-operation with the Greek architect Michalis Photiadis. Its unique design has incorporated the excavations, which are visible under stunning glass floors. The Acropolis masterpieces are marked out and given the prominence they deserve through the ideal interior atmosphere conditions, the natural lighting, as well as easy visitor access, panoramic views and excellent layout of the exhibition areas. It exhibits about 4,000 artifacts.

The tour ends at the Acropolis Museum at approx. 15:00 (3 pm).
