You will then visit one by one all the admirable, eternal buildings of the Acropolis, among which, stand out the Parthenon, the Erechtheion, the Propylaea and the Nike Temple. Your guide will unravel the skein of time, offering you a journey in the mythology, the history and the architecture which resulted in the wondrous creations you see in front of you.

Top Museum of the World: Acropolis Museum
A perfect follow-up to actually exploring the sights at the Acropolis itself. Recognized as one of the top museums in the world, you’ll find yourself up close to the impressive marble masterpieces found on the Acropolis including dramatic sculptures and friezes that brilliantly define the Classical period of ancient Greece.
Wander among the wonderful ancient Acropolis artifacts, elegantly incorporated in the museum’s seamless modern lines and view masterpieces created during a wide time range, spreading from the Archaic period up to the time of the Roman empire.
For the first time, you will have the opportunity to view exhibits, such as the infamous Caryatids, from all sides as three-dimensional exhibits. The glass walls of the galleries allow the everchanging natural light to illuminate different aspects of the exhibits throughout the course of the day and excavations are also visible under glass floors and walkways.
Panoramic views top the experience.
The tour ends at the Acropolis Museum at approximately 14:00 hours (2 pm).
