Acropolis
Location

Meet your guide at Acropolis metro station (ticket level) in time for an 9am departure and walk the short distance to the Acropolis. After picking up your tickets, head inside to explore the hilltop archaeological site, one of the Seven Wonders of the World.

Listen as your guide transports you back to ancient Greece with stories of the ancient city and its importance. Stop to admire the magnificent ruins, most of which date back to the 5th-century BC, including the much-photographed Parthenon, the restored Temple of Athena Nike, and the Erechtheion, known for its exquisite Caryatid statues.

After around two hours exploring the ruins, either end your tour at the Acropolis exit on Mars Hill, or continue to the Ancient Agora (if upgrade selected). Discover the grand Agora, once the epicenter of ancient Athens, on a 2-hour tour, visiting monuments such as the beautifully preserved Temple of Hephaestus and the renovated Stoa of Attalos.

Your tour ends in Monastiraki Square in central Athens.

Tour starts at 09:00 am.
