Acropolis, Acropolis Museum and Dionysos theatre with a private guide
Starting from the Acropolis museum and through its collections, we discuss all the parameters that gave birth to the miracle of the 5th century BC and the construction of the Acropolis monuments.
Situated on the South slope of the Acropolis hill, the theatre of Dionysos, built in honour of the ancient god of wine, is the first amphitheatre on the face of this earth and this is where the ancient greek drama was born and raised.
From the theatre's seats, a walk to the top of the city: the Parthenon and its companion buildings rise up to the blue Athenian skies in all their glory, under the golden sunset light.
Starting from the Acropolis museum, we get to the Theatre of Dionysos and the South slopes in order to climb up to the top of the Acropolis.
