Private Tour – Discover Old Town Athens and see the Acropolis with pre-reserved tickets

Join a  private walking tour that covers the Acropolis and the old town of Athens with its local neighborhoods.

The Acropolis is easily the most popular monument in Athens, join your expert local guide and get a detailed tour including the major highlights. 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.

Visit the most important buildings visible on the Acropolis today: the Parthenon, the Propylaia, the Erechtheion, and the Temple of Athena Nike. Stop to take in the stunning views over Athens from a commanding point of this ancient citadel and see how the city has developed over nearly 3,000 years.

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 second part of the tour focuses on a downhill walk around the little gem neighborhood of Anafiotika. Mimicking the Cycladic architecture, with its stark white cubic houses, flat roofs, and colorful shutters and doors, Anafiotika is truly a little island in the Greek metropolis.

This unique neighborhood in the capital was constructed in the 19th century, when King Otto, sovereign of the newly established Greek monarchy, decided to revamp the new capital.

It was built by workers from the island of Anafi. Escape the crowds of busy Plaka and take in unique views of the Athenian jungle and the Lycabettus hill. Wander through the narrow streets of Anafiotika, admire the many bougainvillea-covered walls, and end your walk with a Greek coffee!
