Things to do Athens: guided walking tour of the Acropolis

The Acropolis, dedicated to the goddess Athena, patron saint of the city. This activity is the essence and wonder of the monuments of Classical Greece. Our tour of the Acropolis will start from the south-east side, avoiding the main entrance which is always more crowded. Our official tour guide will explain to us the most interesting legends of the archaeological site as we visit all the temples and monuments of the site. See the temple of the Parthenon and the Propylaea, a monumental gateway to the Acropolis.

Walk around the Acropolis dedicated to Athena, the patron goddess of the city. Learn about the long history of the capital of modern Greece. Visit the Theatre of Dionysus, which seats 17,000 spectators and was used to host festivals in honour of the birth of the Greek god.

Be impressed by the Erechtheion, named after the demigod Erechtheus and the Odeon of Herodes Atticus, a giant stone theatre. Enjoy your guide's commentary on the ancient Greek myths behind the ruins.

Take a look at the stone carvings of the Caryatids and the Temple of Athena Nike, the smallest temple. After your tour, have free time to stay longer and explore the exceptional site at your own pace.
