Description

Join the original Athens walking tour and benefit from over 20 years of experience. Stroll to the foothills of the Unesco World Heritage Site of the Acropolis of Athens, one of the world’s most revealing archaeological sites. Avoid the crowds and head for the south slope of the Acropolis to avoid the main crowds. Visit the Theatre of Dionysus, a 5th-century amphitheater cited as the birthplace of the performing arts. Hear about its history and imagine it filled with the theatergoers of Ancient Greece. Stop at the Dionysus Sanctuary, dedicated to the Greek god of wine and fertility. Once inside the Acropolis, get up-close to important sights, such as the Propylaea gateway, Erechtheion, Temple of Athena Nike, and Parthenon. Pause for photos of these fascinating ruins, and learn their history from your guide. Skip-the-Ticket Line Access We are pleased to offer all our guests a convenient skip-the-ticket-line service.

Learn about the excavations, and get an insight into the citadel’s ruins. Hear about surrounding monuments, such as Mars Hill, the Odeon of Herodes Atticus, and the ancient Agora, once the heart of Athens. Continue on to the Acropolis Museum, now ranked as one of the top 5 museums in the world. See the highlights of the impressive collection of statues and relics. Go to the Gallery of the Slopes of the Acropolis, where the glass floors reveal excavation sites. End your tour inside the museum, leaving you free to explore its exhibits further should you wish.
