Overview

Explore the history of Athens on a walking tour with a private guide or in a group tour. Start at the city’s most monumental site, the iconic Acropolis. Admire the astonishing collection of sculptures that describe more than 2,500 years of history, from the glorious first theater of humanity at the Theater of Dionysus, to the healing Temple of Asclepius, and the Odeon of Herodes Atticus.
See the Temple of Athena Nike (Temple of Wingless Victory), the gateway of the Propylaea, the Porch of the Caryatids at the Erechtheion, and the crowning glory of the Parthenon.
Your licensed guide will explain the roles the various monuments played at the center of classical civilization in the western hemisphere, before taking you to the new state-of-the-art Acropolis Museum, where relics from Ancient Greece await your discovery in spectacular displays.

Really interesting and historically important sites. Don’t worry about the number of steps to the hill - it’s a very convenient and comfortable road.
