What You Will See and Do
See the Acropolis and its Famous Monuments
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, between the Acropolis and the Acropolis Museum Tour, there's an approximate 15-20 min break during which you may get a snack or a drink but there is no time for a leisurely meal.
Visit One of the Best Museums in the World: Acropolis Museum
Designed by renowned Swiss architect Bernard Tschumi and notable Greek architect Michalis Photiadis, the Acropolis Museum captivates guests the moment you arrive. The sleek, modern building opened its doors in 2009, and elegantly showcases more than 4,000 artifacts exclusively from the Acropolis in an open-floor layout. One of the most spectacular aspects of the museum is its glass floors and walkways that reveal real excavations below your own feet. Panoramic views of the Acropolis and top the experience.
The tour ends at the Acropolis Museum.
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.
