What You Will See and Do
Entering on the south slope of the Acropolis, you’ll visit the Dionysus Sanctuary and Dionysus Theater before you walk up the slope leading to the Acropolis monuments. Panoramic views of the city will be perfect for Instagram-ready photos.
During your tour, you’ll gain insight into the significance of the historic monuments of Acropolis including the Parthenon, the Erechtheion, the Propylaia, the Nike Temple as well as other significant sights of Athens including the Odeon of Herodes Atticus, the Ancient Agora, the National Observatory of Athens and the city’s scenic hills: Filoppapos, Mars, and Pnyx.
Note: After the first part of the tour, which ends on the Acropolis, you will have time to take more photos before walking to the Ancient Agora with your guide. Before the guided tour to the Agora, there will be no time for a leisurely lunch, so please make sure you have a snack and bottle of water with you.
Walk through Plaka
After making your way through the narrow streets of the picturesque Plaka, under the Acropolis, you will end up at the Ancient Greek Agora.
Ancient Agora: The Core of Ancient Athenian Life
Of all Athens' ancient sights, the Agora firmly defines the city’s status as the cradle of Western civilization. This was where ancient Greek democracy came to life. It was a commercial, political, religious, and cultural hub where the greatest Greeks such as Plato, Socrates, Demosthenes, e.t.c. theorized, spoke out and debated. Explore the temples, an ancient concert hall and imagine ancient life under its famous long, marble colonnaded arcades. You’ll also see the significant artifacts at the Agora Museum, located in the two-storied Stoa of Attalos which was built in the 2nd century BC.
The tour ends at the Ancient Agora.
Skip-the-Ticket Line Access
We are pleased to offer all our guests a convenient skip-the-ticket-line service. We take care and pre-purchasing the entrance tickets for each archaeological site and Museum visited during the tour, saving you the hassle of buying them online or queuing up at the ticket counters. However, please be aware that even with our skip-the-ticket-line service, there might be some waiting time required for security checks. This is because visitor numbers can fluctuate unpredictably at the sites throughout the day. The typical waiting time falls within 0 to 10 or 30 minutes, though on rare occasions, it might be longer.
However, here's where our service truly shines: Even amidst a queue, our experienced guides will always stay by your side. They will use this time as an opportunity to kickstart your tour, offering in-depth explanations about the history and significance of the site you're about to explore. This way, not a moment is wasted, and you're assured of the full, rich experience we promise.
