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

Join a small group at the Acropolis metro station very near the Acropolis itself. Get to know your local, professionally-licensed guide as you go over the day’s itinerary. Start your walk right away to discover the imposing Acropolis, Athens’ most popular monument.

The Acropolis from the fifth century BC is the most accurate reflection of the splendor, power, and wealth of Athens at its prime. This was the golden age of Perikles, often considered the Greece’s greatest democratic leader. Your professional guide will provide you with an excellent understanding of this fascinating era and how its history was connected to that of the Acropolis.

Touch upon how the rock of the Acropolis itself served as a reference point for the development of a modern Athens. Your guide will explain how this site grew and evolved along with the city of Athens.

After this tour, you’ll be able to note the differences between Doric, Ionic, and Corinthian orders of architecture and to know various important characters from Greek mythology. Listen in as your guide brings the most important myths of ancient Athens to life. Your guide willl also explain the city’s significant religious festivals, its earliest cults, and how key events in its history are all connected to the sacred Acropolis.

The second part of the tour will be of the magnificent, glass-floored Acropolis Museum. It’s a perfect stop to compliment your visit to the Acropolis and learn how the Greeks honor their heritage.

Athens Acropolis Museum

A visit to the Acropolis is never complete without seeing the Acropolis Museum. Depending on the season and the crowds, our expert guides organize the timing of the museum to occur either before or after seeing the Acropolis itself.

The Acropolis Museum is stunning, to say the least. Our tour includes the treasures of the ancient Greek civilization displayed inside the museum. But that’s not all that’s worth discovering… The unique design of the Museum has incorporated magnificent excavations that are visible under its beautiful glass floors!

Today, the Acropolis Museum houses original elements from the temples of the Acropolis, protecting them from further deterioration while giving visitors a chance to see history with their own eyes.

In the Parthenon Gallery, admire a famous marble frieze that has been renovated using both original marble and casts of pieces that are displayed elsewhere (like the Elgin Marbles in the British Museum).

The Archaic Gallery houses statues that pre-date even the Acropolis itself! The Gallery of the Slopes of the Acropolis shows pots, children’s toys, and other everyday items which help visitors understand what life was like for its original inhabitants.

After your guided tour, feel free to stay in the museum to explore further at your own pace, enjoy views over the city, or head back up to the Acropolis and visit the Museum Cafe!
