Walking tour


We will start the tour from the Acropolis. The ancient monuments built on top of the hill reflect the power, wealth and spirit of Athens in the golden age. We will see the temple of Nike, walk through the Propylaea and see the Erechtheion and the temple of Parthenon, the masterpiece of ancient Greek art and architecture. We enjoy the panoramic view of Mars Hill, the ancient Agora, the temple of Zeus and the theatre of Dionysus. We will then walk to the museum, where thousands of artifacts from the Acropolis area are exhibited. Among them, we see daily life objects and original breathtaking artwork from the Acropolis temples including the original Caryatides and the Parthenon sculptures.
We continue with a walk in Plaka, the oldest section in the city. At the end of the tour you have several options to enjoy your lunch, do some shopping, or simply explore it.

A Recent Review of this tour

Eugenia was a wonderful guide. She is very informative and knowledgeable. We got the meeting location wrong and she was kind enough to come find us and extended the length of the tour to make up for our mistake. At the end of the tour, she gave us ideas for dinner locations and other sights to see. Highly recommend her!
