Athens Acropolis and its complimentary sites, 3 hrs. 

The Acropolis is easily the most popular monument in Athens .Thus we give it a very detailed tour including the Erechtheion, the Temple of Athena Nike, the Propylaia and of course,the Parthenon.

Located in the center of Athens, Acropolis is on an elevation. It is next to the Plaka neighbourhood which is just south of the Agora. A visit to the Acropolis is never complete without seeing the Acropolis Museum. Our guides organise timing of the museum either before or after the Acropolis proper considering the season and the crowds.

So, the museum is sometimes at the beginning and sometimes at the end of the tour but for both options we meet at the Acropolis station. The Acropolis is  comprised of many buildings and  offers wonderful views over Athens. We will look at how the rock of the Acropolis itself serves as a reference point for the modern development of Athens.

Your guide will walk you through Greek architecture and mythology as well.

Athens Acropolis Museum tour will continue with the Museum once you’ve done the Acropolis.

DESCRIPTION

Athens Acropolis Museum

Acropolis Museum is stunning, to say the least. Our tour includes the treasures of the ancient Greek civilisation as displayed inside the museum but please take note that the museum building itself is worth discovering.

Its unique design has incorporated the excavations which are visible under stunning glass floors.

Today the Acropolis Museum  houses original pieces from the temples of the Acropolis, protecting them from further deterioration, while also giving their historical context.

In the Parthenon Gallery, the famous marble frieze is recreated with both original marbles and casts of those pieces held elsewhere, such as the Elgin Marbles in the British Museum.

The Archaic Gallery has statues which pre-date even the Acropolis itself, and the Gallery of the Slopes of the Acropolis shows pots, children’s toys and other things used by the early settlers in everyday life.

Join our walking tour to discover the Athens Acropolis Museum with a scholarly and local guide. You can choose to go private or join a group of max 8.

It’s always a intimate experience and the best way to continue your Athens experience is to join the Athens Food Tour.
