Dominating the Athenian landscape, the Acropolis is unsurpassed in its beauty, architectural splendour and historic importance. Your guided tour of the Acropolis begins with a walk up to the upper city entrance through the Propylea.
After exploring the ancient ruins, admire the priceless relics that have been excavated and are now displayed in the Acropolis Museum. Opened in 2009, the museum charters the stunning history of the Acropolis. Highlights include the awesome original Caryatids, as well as the remaining pediments from the Parthenon Temple with copies of the missing parts. The museum also offers stunning views of the Acropolis of Athens.
Arriving at the Plaka, sample some Greek treats as you are served some traditional snacks, ‘mezedes’, accompanied by a glass of local wine, followed by some free time to explore the Plaka at your leisure.
