Overview
Athens’ Acropolis is one of the world’s top archaeological sites, with so much to see it can be overwhelming. Cover its highlights with a guide who adds in-depth insight and context to the Parthenon and other monuments, and follow a route that avoids the heaviest crowds. Round things off at the New Acropolis Museum, where your guide will showcase its must-sees. Includes a choice of start times for flexibility.
What to Expect
Meet your guide in central Athens, and stroll to the base of the Acropolis, the city's UNESCO-listed rocktop citadel.

Avoid the main crowds by heading for the southern slopes, where you’ll visit the Theater of Dionysus and Dionysus Sanctuary and hear about their history.

Then, pay your admission (own expense) and head into the Acropolis. Explore key sights such as the Propylaea, Erechtheion, and Temple of Athena Nike, and marvel at the Parthenon as your guide explains its significance. Then, gaze down on Athens and learn about the monuments below, including the agora and Odeon of Herodes Atticus.

Continue to the New Acropolis Museum, considered one of the world’s top five museums. Purchase admission and enjoy a guided tour of its highlights, including its statues and glass-floored galleries that reveal excavations on the Acropolis’ slopes.

Your tour finishes in the museum, leaving you free to continue exploring independently.

In depth knowledge and a passion for the subject

We went on this tour with Thenassus and it was a wonderful experience. He was a fantastic guide who showed an intimate knowledge of the subject and a passion for all things related to the ancient city. An excellent, enthralling experience - thoroughly recommended.
