Private walking tour


The Acropolis museum are exhibited finds from the Acropolis Hill. The building itself, is an architectural jewel of Athens, mostly made of glass, and built over an active excavation. We see finds from the excavations at the foothills of the Acropolis, related to everyday life in ancient Athens, a collection of statues from the Acropolis monuments, and the highlight, the breathtaking sculptures from Parthenon. We continue with a walk through Plaka; the city's historic district, with Roman ruins, Byzantine churches, neoclassic houses, cafes, tavernas, and shops. We finish our tour in Monastiraki, where you have plenty of options for a drink, or lunch.
