Venture through the legendary Acropolis, following your guide as they unravel the myths and legends of ancient Athens. Visit the most important buildings visible on the Acropolis today: the Parthenon, the Propylaia, the Erechtheion, and the Temple of Athena Nike. Stop to take in the stunning views over Athens from a commanding point of this ancient citadel and see how the city has developed over nearly 3,000 years. Continue your private tour with a leisurely downhill walk into the hidden gem of Anafiotika. Transport to a little island within the metropolis, where white cubic houses, flat roofs, and colorful shutters evoke the essence of Cycladic architecture. Built-in the 19th century by workers from the island of Anafi, Anafiotika remains a testament to the city's cultural diversity. Escape the bustling crowds of Plaka and savor unique views of the Athenian jungle and the Lycabettus hill. Meander through the narrow, bougainvillea-lined streets of Anafiotika, and conclude your delightful walk with a traditional Greek coffee. Your local guide will generously provide references and recommendations, empowering you to continue exploring independently after the tour.
