Visit Athens’ most significant monument and discover the captivating world of Ancient Greece on a 3-hour Athens Sightseeing Walking Tour to the Acropolis & the Acropolis Museum. Explore the UNESCO-listed archaeological site and the top-10 listed museum in the world, with a licensed tour guide.
First, we will head to the renowned Acropolis Museum, where we will discover artifacts from Ancient Greece at the peak of its artistic realm in the 5th century BC. Designed by Bernard Tschumi and Michael Photiadis, the foundation is a treasure chest of artifacts formerly held in other museums, in storage, or returned from collections abroad. Marvel at the 1st floor Archaic Gallery, observe the excavations made visible through stunning glass floors, and explore the highlights from the museum’s collection of more than 4,000 artifacts.
We will head for the south slope of the hill to bypass the main crowds and enter the archeological site without delays. Along the way, we will visit the Theatre of Dionysus, a 5th-century amphitheater that is referred to as the birthplace of the performing arts.
Later on, we will make a brief stop at the Dionysus Sanctuary, dedicated to the Greek god of wine and fertility. On our way to the Acropolis, we will encounter the main sights, such as the Propylaea gateway, Erechtheion, Temple of Athena Nike, and Parthenon.
Now it is the time to capture all of these fascinating ruins and learn their history from our guide. Once at the top of the sacred hill, we will be able to marvel at the full panorama of Athens. At the same time, you will learn about the excavations, and the surrounding monuments, such as Mars Hill and the Odeon of Herodes Atticus.
