About this activity
From pick up at your hotel (if in easy walk of the Acropolis) or at the nearby Guide ticket office, your dedicated expert guide will take individual care of your group.
After purchasing your tickets you can skip the long lines to ascend the ancient stone steps underneath the giant entrance portal (Propylaea) behind which once stood a colossal statue of the Goddess Athena whose bronze spear legend has it could be seen over 60km away by sailors rounding the cape of Sounion. Emerging onto the plateau you will reach the pinnacle of Greek antiquity, the Parthenon to learn about this marvel of both engineering and art along with its amazing mythology and the role it played in Ancient Greek life.
Opposite the impressive columns you will be guided to the Erechtheion, Athens most holy temple and home to the contest between Poseidon & the goddess Athena for the patronage of the city and from which the sacred olive tree still grows! After time to contemplate this amazing site and its turbulent history and take photos enjoying the panoramic Athens view you will descend through the olive trees towards the New Acropolis Museum to see & learn about the art & masterpieces which adorned the temples.
EXTENDED TOUR OPTION INCLUDING THE ANCIENT AGORA
If choosing the extended option your guide will suggest an ideal spot for lunch, either in the shadow of the Temple of the Winds, or the small picturesque streets of the Plaka area, or adjacent to the Ancient Agora and your final destination. In the very footsteps of the philosophers and from the place where so many of the key ideas of modern civilization including democracy were born you will be guided through its fascinating history.
