Walk along the beautiful Dionysiou Areopagitou walkway and enter the Old Town of Athens, the Plaka area.  Marvel the beautiful St. Catherine’s church and learn about Lysicrates Monument and its’ importance in the 4th Century BC.
    Continue to the Acropolis by entering the site from the south slope, in order to visit the first theater of antiquity the Dionysus theater. and to avoid the crowds:  On your way to the Unesco-listed admirable Acropolis monuments, see the Philopappos hill monument and the Odeon of Herodes Atticus. Marvel the ancient beautiful constructions of the Acropolis: the Temple of Athena Nike, the Propylaea gateway, the Erechtheion and focus on the astonishing Parthenon.  Listen to in-depth commentary about each of the treasures, and uncover fascinating facts about their construction and history. As you wander round, stop to absorb the stellar views down over Athens, including the Mars hill, the Ancient Agora and the Temple of Hephaestus and capture them on camera. After roughly three hours exploring, your tour concludes when your guide departs, leaving you free to continue exploring Athens at your leisure.


    Our recommendation isInside the Syntagma Metro Station, because we believe it is the right and most convenient spot for the route of the tour! The meeting point is next to the ticket validating machines, underneath the hanging clock. Your tour guide or office representative will be holding the orange colored Athens Walking Tours sign to identify them.

    Ask us for pick up from your hotel! Some, but not all hotels are conveniently located within the route of the tour and in this case, our guide will gladly meet you at your hotel lobby and start your tour from there.
