Ancient Athens Ruins and Markets Small-Group Walking Tour
USD 69.43
Overview
Exploring Athens without a guide means you may miss out on lesser-known sights and vital background on its classical treasures. This tour walks along the perimeter of the Acropolis and also visits hidden gems: Peruse the food and flea markets in and around Monastiraki, and see the Agora and Hadrian’s Library, hearing guide commentary along the way. And because it’s a small-group tour, you’ll have plenty of time for questions.
What to Expect
Greet your guide in central Athens and begin your walking tour along Athinas Street.

Pass the Mayor’s Office and see the locals going about their business as your guide shares details of city life and Athens’ 2,000-year-old culture.

Roam backstreets and buy some foods for a post-tour snack from a fresh produce market, with tips from your guide.

Admire the 1st-century Hadrian’s Library near Monastiraki Square and pass the 18th-century Tzistarakis Mosque before chatting with vendors at various shops. Then, after perusing Monastiraki’s flea market, continue to either Ifaistou or Pandrossos to discover their artisanal stores.

Next, wander around the Agora, once the heart of ancient Athens, and take in views of the UNESCO-listed Acropolis from Thisson. Finally, stroll around the Acropolis perimeter as your guide provides background on the monuments.

Your tour concludes here, leaving you to explore independently either in the Acropolis (own expense) or outside.
