Description

Skip the lines and visit 2 of the most famous sites in Athens: the striking Acropolis reigning from the hill and the renowned Acropolis Museum. Meander through glorious monuments like the Parthenon, Nike Temple and Ancient Agora. Enjoy a guided visit to the Acropolis Museum and admire the artefacts on display.

Follow your guide across the south slope of the Acropolis to avoid the crowds and gaze at the beautiful views of the city as you climb to the top. On the way, visit the Dionysus Sanctuary and Dionysus Theatre built in the 5th century BC.

Wander through the Acropolis site as your guide takes you back in time with stories and legends from Greek mythology. See the famous Parthenon and hear about its dedication to the goddess Athena. Continue your tour to discover the Erectheion, the Propylaia, the Nike Temple and the Agrippa Monument.

End with a visit to the world-famous Acropolis Museum, designed by Swiss architect, Bernard Tschumi, in cooperation with the Greek architect, Michalis Photiadis. Watch the on-going excavations and examine more than 4,000 artefacts portraying daily life in ancient Greece.

I write this as a guide myself - hence awful guest! Vicky was a brilliant guide, knowledgeable and interesting without overloading us with just facts. It was well organised and a small group as sold. We and another couple joined with the group from a cruise that had already been touring Athens since the morning. We wandered all over the acropolis site and it's such a more fascinating place with the insight and live commentary of a guide - before heading to the amazing museum and being guided thru the highlights. I can't image what a mess it must be in summer but in winter it was not too crowded and easy to follow the guide with a couple of breaks in the 3ish hours we spent together. Thank you Vicky for a great afternoon.

Kostas was very knowledgeable and made an exceptional place even more enjoyable. The trek up the Acropolis was difficult for some in our group but he was very considerate and waited for them to catch up. The reward was worth the walk! I was in awe! The museum was also very impressive!
