Full description

Join your small group to enjoy skip-the-line access to the famous Acropolis. Enjoy a more personalized and interactive experience led by an expert local guide. Begin exploring the Acropolis immediately avoiding the long queues. Journey through history with your local guide, from the ancient Hellenistic and Roman periods, through the Byzantine and Ottoman era into the modern-day.

Learn about the most celebrated myths of ancient Athens, its most significant religious festivals, earliest cults, and how several specific events in the city’s history are all connected to this sacred precinct. Enjoy stunning views over Athens from a commanding point of this ancient citadel and see how the city has developed over nearly 3,000 years. Visit the most important buildings visible on the Acropolis today: the Parthenon, the Propylaia, the Erechtheion, and the Temple of Athena Nike. Choose to stay on the hill to explore further at your own pace, or let your guide show you a different route towards the south exit that will present you with views of the Altar of Asclepius and the Theater of Dionysus.

This was the perfect level of historical context and detail. We did not do the full museum tour with the guide but really enjoyed the brief overview in the museum prior to walking the site. It really help to set the tone. The guide was very personable and knowledgeable. Would recommend to all ages.

Eva was very informative and personable and gave an excellent overview of the history of the acropolis and Athens in general. We had a wonderful time seeing the sights of Athens and learning so much history. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone interested in ancient history or beautiful landmarks.

The tour was great and Froso is lovely and very knowledgeable. She took care off us and made sure that we are able to follow and listen to her. The little breaks as we were going up the hill were very helpful. Froso knew the exact spots to stop and enjoy view and history. I would book again.
