Cultural Guided Walking Tours In Athens – Tour of the Acropolis and the Museum

Join a small group at the Acropolis metro station for a more interactive and personal experience. Get to know your local guide who has a professional license as she goes over the day’s itinerary. Start your walk right away to discover Acropolis which is the most popular monument in Athens.

The Acropolis of the fifth century BC is the most accurate reflection of the splendor, power, and wealth of Athens at its highest peak, the golden age of Perikles. Your professional guide will give an excellent understanding of this as part of the Acropolis.

We look at how the rock of the Acropolis itself serves as a reference point for the modern development of Athens. You learn how this site grew and evolved along with the city of Athens.

See the differences between Doric, Ionic, and Corinthian orders of architecture and also characters from Greek mythology.

Join your guide as she talks about the most important myths of ancient Athens, its most significant religious festivals, earliest cults, and how several events in the city’s history are all connected to this sacred precinct called Acropolis.

Discover Athens and the Acropolis more in-depth on this small-group walking tour!

The second part of the tour will be at the Acropolis Museum. This tour is a perfect way to complete the information at the Acropolis and savor how the Greeks honor their heritage.

Athens Acropolis Museum

A visit to the Acropolis is never complete without seeing the Acropolis Museum. Our guides organize the timing of the museum either before or after the Acropolis proper, considering the season and the crowds.

Acropolis Museum is stunning, to say the least. Our tour includes the treasures of the ancient Greek civilization 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 beautiful 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 that 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.

After your guided tour, you have the option to stay in the museum to explore further at your own pace and enjoy the view over the city and up to the Acropolis in its famous Museum Cafe!

Tour was exactly as described! Highly recommended

There were 4 of us, all over in our 70’s & 80’s and the guide stopped to let us old folks keep up. She did an excellent job. The information provided gave us a better insight into the history of the Acropolis and recommend the use of a guide if you don’t want to miss anything The Acropolis Museum is a must after visiting the Acropolis. Again our guide made what we saw come to life and gave us a better understanding of what we were observing

This is a must do in Athens!

A great way to see the Acropolis and the museum! There's not a lot of information up there so having a tour guide is great to understand a lot of the history, plus the guide probably adds a lot more information. Even handier when we were at the museum.

Exceeded our expectations

An excellent and informative guide who brought the history of the Acropolis to life. Also, the details regarding the museum’s architecture and tie-in to Acropolis were fascinating.
