Description

Journey back to the days of Ancient Greece and discover the historic Acropolis in Athens. Get a welcome from an English-speaking local at Monastiraki Metro Station, and then walk through Plaka and the old town. Get some general information about the city and take souvenir photos in the most picturesque neighborhoods. Then, receive your entry ticket for the Acropolis and a bottle of water to keep you hydrated as your local host escorts you to the nearest and less crowded entrance.  Then, explore the ancient citadel at your own pace and discover the ancient buildings of great architectural and historic significance, including the iconic Parthenon at the top of the hill, from where the views of the city are simply stunning. Go to the Propylaia, from where entrance to the Acropolis was controlled. See the ruins of the Erechtheion, dedicated to the gods Athena and Poseidon. Admire the imposing remains of the  earliest fully Ionic temple on the Acropolis at the Temple of Athena Nike and more.
