Itinerary

Greet your guide in Central Athens and then stroll to the Acropolis, pay your entrance fee, and head inside. Enter through the south side, stopping at the Theatre of Dionysus and the Sanctuary of Dionysus.

Inside the ancient citadel, ascend the sacred hill. Your guide will explain the names and meaning of sights like the Parthenon, with its missing marbles; the Temple of Athena Nike; the Erechtheion; and the Propylaea gateway. 

At the summit, savor sweeping views of the modern city as your guide points out surrounding monuments, including Areopagus hill and the ancient agora, a meeting place that was once the beating heart of ancient Athens. The tour concludes here, leaving you free to explore at your leisure or make your own way back to your hotel.

Overview

It is, of course, possible to explore the ruins of the Acropolis independently. But without an understanding of ancient Greek religion, culture, and history, it can be tough to tell exactly what you’re looking at—let alone what it all means. This guided walking tour takes the confusion out of the Acropolis and leaves you free to continue exploring once you’re done.

Highlights
  • Explore the Acropolis, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, with a local guide
  • See the Theatre of Dionysus, Parthenon, and the Temple of Athena Nike
  • Learn about ancient Greek history, mythology, drama, and lifestyles
  • Soak up sweeping views from the summit as you discover surrounding sights

Makes the visit alive!

It was tempting to just get tickets and walk up to the Acropolis... but unexpectedly, this offer falls in our lap - pay a bit more, cut the line and get a guided tour. It wasn’t planned but turned into the best Karma could offer!...More

Yes! You meet at a super yummy yogurt shop on the pedestrian avenue and then skip the line as a group. You can buy the museum tickets online too, so never wait in a line: The Acropolis Museum website.
