Description

Begin your tour early in the morning with a visit to the Acropolis of Athens. Located in the middle of modern Athens, the 'sacred rock' proudly displays a set of marble monuments that express their outstanding universal value. Walk uphill through the Propylaea grand marble entrance, as you contemplate the hills of Philoppapus, Pnyx, and Mars. Discover the astonishing construction of the Parthenon, the most splendid temple ever built by the Greeks and dedicated to goddess Athena. Admire the Erechtheion with its renowned Caryatids and the view of the temple of Athena Nike, before gazing at the infinite modern city from the hilltop, stretching between low mountains and the Aegean Sea. Explore all sides for panoramic views of the old town and its picturesque neoclassical buildings, as well as the ancient theater of Dionysus, the Roman temple of Zeus, and the world-famous Herodeion Theater. Continue on to the spectacular Acropolis Museum, the most modern museum of Athens. Made of concrete, steel and glass, it houses a wide collection of original sculptures from the Acropolis and its slopes, where the glass floor reveals to visitors the ruins of ancient buildings underneath. As lunch time approaches, you can choose to dine in the museum’s restaurant or the museum district, near Plaka. In the picturesque district of Monastiraki, encounter the second-most-significant historical site of Athens, the Agora. Once a vivid and bustling marketplace, the Agora was for many centuries the heart of Athens, filled with stores, administrative buildings, public monuments, and temples. Stroll around the ruins of public monuments, the ancient parliament, and store stoas that once embellished the area. Find out more about philosophers such as Socrates, Athenian politics, and the society of Greek antiquity, and admire the temple of Hephaestus - the best preserved classical temple of Greece which offers panoramic views of all of Agora. Towards the latter stage of your tour, visit the local museum’s collection, which features ancient drachma coins, measurement weights, voting ballots, and high-quality pottery, among many other interesting exhibits. Finally, visit the National Archaeological Museum, which is the largest archaeological museum in Greece. Its collections represent the whole range of Greek history and art, from Prehistory to Late Antiquity and from Greek to the Roman times.
