Description:
Meet your guide at the prearranged location, then enjoy a leisurely stroll to the foothills of the UNESCO World Heritage–listed Acropolis of Athens, an ancient citadel and one of the world’s most revealing archaeological sites.

Head for the south slope of the acropolis to avoid the main crowds, then pay your entrance fee and make your way inside to see the bounty of ancient treasures that await. Along the way, visit the Theatre of Dionysus, a 5th-century amphitheater that is often cited as the birthplace of the performing arts. Hear about its history from your guide and imagine it filled with Ancient Greek theatergoers. You’ll also stop at Dionysus Sanctuary, a site dedicated to the Greek god of wine and fertility who was also the patron god of the Greek stage.

Inside the acropolis, get up close to important sights such as Propylaea gateway, Erechtheion, the Temple of Athena Nike and the Parthenon, a former temple dedicated to the goddess Athena. Pause for photos by these fascinating ruins and learn all about their history and historical importance from your guide.

When you reach the summit of the sacred hill, be awed by the sweeping panoramas of Athens below. Learn about the excavation details and gain further insight into the citadel’s ruins. You’ll also hear about surrounding monuments such as Mars Hill, the Odeon of Herodes Atticus and the ancient agora, once the heart of ancient Athens.

Continue on to the New Acropolis Museum, which has been ranked one of the top five museums in the world. Follow your guide on a tour of its highlights, which include impressive collections of statues and relics, as well as the Gallery of the Slopes of the Acropolis, where glass floors reveal archaeological excavation sites.

After approximately 1.5 hours, your tour concludes inside the museum, leaving you free to explore its exhibits further, should you wish.
