No food, alcohol or refreshments are allowed inside the sites or museums. Only water. 

The less crowded is our Early First Access 07:45 Acropolis group tour, which is from the Main entrance, since we reassure our hosting team and guides secure you with the first access in the Acropolis. 

Also, mid-day and afternoon the less crowded Acropolis entrance is from the Southern entrance, from which we enter our groups from. 

Everyday this may vary depending on different unforeseen circumstances.
