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.
Start with magnificent Acropolis monuments and walk around the iconic Parthenon.
You enter through the South Slopes and on the way up on your right hand you admire the the Ancient Theater of Dionysus. Be part of the theater’s spectators and listen the stories and descriptions of your archaeologist guide. Walk up and pass by the concert hall of Herodes Atticus still used today from Modern Athenians as a music hall. Walk under the Propylaia Gates and admire the astonishing Parthenon temple.
Make you way down hill and walk in the new state of the art Acropolis museum designed by the famous architect Bernard Tschumi.
Explore the world heritage galleries and walk over the glass floors looking down to the ruins and buildings of Ancient Athens city.
