Entrance fees and tickets

If you find yourself in Athens, you cannot miss visiting its crown, Acropolis! The ‘’sacred rock’’ of Acropolis offers a majestic view of the city while being surrounded by the classical elegance of the Parthenon and the Erectheion temples.

Αποτέλεσμα εικόνας για acropolis

It remains open from 8:00 am to the sunset time which varies, of course, depending on the season. During summer you can surely visit it until 8:00 pm while in winter until 5:00 pm. 

 

There are two entrances to the Acropolis: the main one which is in the west and the side entrance (known as Dionysus Theater entrance), which is located in the southeast.

If you use the main one, you should know that it is usually very crowded. You should be prepared to wait long in the line to enter the site.

We, at the Athens Walking Tours, use only the Dionysus Theater entrance for all the advantages it offers us:

Using the Dionysus Theater entrance you have the opportunity to see much more than the visitor using the main entrance. You will see the Dionysus Theater –the oldest and most important theater in Europe, the Thrasylus sponsor’s monument, the Eumenes Stoa, the Asclepius Sanctuary and many more sites and monuments.

The Dionysus Theater entrance is never as busy and crowded as the main one.

We, at the Athens Walking Tours, do take care though and purchase the tickets in advance for all our guests so, no lining up at all!

By the Dionysus Theater entrance, there are many stores where you may get a snack or a coffee or a drink.

Restroom facilities and Tourism Info just next to the Dionysus Theater entrance.
