Discover Local Athens and See the Acropolis

This walking tour covers the Acropolis and Athens City with its local neighborhoods.

The Acropolis is easily the most popular monument in Athens, on this tour we give a simplified version including the major highlights only. We wanted to offer a tour with less emphasis on history but more on the local street life of Athens so that you can see the most important landmarks and also experience the local culture.

Enjoy your local guide’s expertise who is an excellent expert on Greek mythology and history. They enjoy walking around the Plaka area with our guests talking about Greek food.
Join the hustle and bustle at Monastraki where fresh produce, cheese, meat, and fish provide a wonderful aroma such as only Greek foods can generate! Athens tour touches on all the senses as you find hidden nooks and delightful experiences that few visitors ever get to see in the city.

Immerse yourself in the very atmosphere, history, and culture of this glorious Greek city with an exceptional local guide. See Syntagma station and enjoy the change of guards at the Parliament House.  It’s a great walk to enjoy the local life in Athens and see people in their everyday heyday.  Your local guide will give you many references and recommendations so that you can be independent after this tour.

After we watch the changing of the guards, we enjoy the busy neighborhood as we make our way to the Acropolis hill.

The Acropolis is comprised of many buildings and offers beautiful views of Athens. We will look at how the rock of the Acropolis itself serves as a reference point for the modern development of Athens.

Your local guide will talk about the most famous myths of ancient Athens, its most significant religious festivals, earliest cults and how several certain events in the city’s history are all connected to this sacred precinct.

The monuments of the Acropolis stand in harmony with their natural setting. These unique masterpieces of ancient architecture combine different orders and styles of Classical art most innovatively and have influenced art and culture for many centuries. The focus of this somewhat simplified version of the Acropolis tour will be the Parthenon.
