Top Museum of the World: Acropolis Museum 
 
Designed by renowned Swiss architect Bernard Tschumi and notable Greek architect Michalis Photiadis, the Acropolis Museum captivates guests on approach. Its seamless modern lines elegantly incorporate artifacts exclusively from the Acropolis, and excavations are also  visible under glass floors and walkways. The marbled surviving treasures are impressively displayed with the use of natural light, situated on a modernist open layout.  Panoramic views top the experience. 
 
The tour ends at the Acropolis Museum at approximately 15:00 (3:00 pm).
 

Meeting point

Your Athens Walking Tours guide will be waiting for you holding the orange colored Athens Walking Tours sign. The meeting point is the Fresko Yogurt Bar located on 3 Dionysiou Areopagitou Street which is at the beginning of the pedestrian walkway that takes you from Hadrian's Arch to the Acropolis.

Please be at the meeting point at 11:15 am. This tour is a continuation of the Athens City Tour and the Acropolis tour which starts earlier. Our guide with his/her group will arrive at the meeting point between 11:15 am and 11:30 am the latest. Look out for someone holding an orange colored Athens Walking Tours sign.

Tip: While you wait for your guide at the Fresko Yogurt Bar, it is a good opportunity to try a serving of fresh authentic Greek yogurt, best when topped with honey or a Greek spoon sweet. Be sure to ask for a free sample!
