Description

The tour begins inside the Syntagma Metro Station where you will visit the Metro Museum and see its very interesting archaeological artifacts from the daily life of Ancient Athens that came to light during the construction of the metro. You will then proceed to the House of the Greek Parliament, the Monument to the Unknown Soldier and watch the changing of the guards.

Your tour continues towards the National Gardens and on to the beautiful neoclassical Zappeion Hall. In front of it towers the surviving columns of the Temple of Zeus and Hadrian's Arch, both of which you will have the opportunity to visit. From there you will enter the famous Plaka district where you'll see the statue of Melina Merkouri.

You will enter the Acropolis from the south slope to avoid the crowds and to visit the Dionysus sanctuary and Dionysus Theater built in the 5th century BC. Your guide will take care of the tickets so you can skip the line. As you begin to ascend the sacred hill, a breathtaking view of the city below will unfold.

Your guide will give you a detailed explanation of the glorious monuments of the Acropolis such as the Parthenon, the Erectheion, the Propylaia, the Nike Temple and the surrounding monuments such as the Odeon of Herodes Atticus, the Ancient Agora, the Observatory as well as the Philopappos, Mars, and Pnyx Hills.

The tour ends on the Acropolis.
