Full description

Explore the monuments of the Acropolis on a small group afternoon walking tour with a French-speaking licensed tour guide and archaeologist. Visit the Parthenon, and learn the fascinating history of the most important classical site in the western world.

Join a licensed archaeologist guide, and admire an astonishing collection of sculptures that tell more than 2,500 years of history, from the 1st theater of human civilization at the Theater of Dionysus, to the Healing Temple of Asclepius, and Odeon of Herodes Atticus.

See the Temple of Athena Nike (Temple of Wingless Victory), and the gateway to the Propylaeum. Go to the remains of the Porch of the Caryatids at the Erechtheum. 

Marvel at the crowning glory of the Acropolis at the iconic Parthenon (entrance fee not included and will need to be paid on the day), from where almost all of Athens can be seen.

Tour fantastique. Visiter l'Acropole l'après-midi est une idée géniale car vous évitez les foules le matin et la chaleur. Est plus frais et léger est idéal pour prendre des photos. Notre guide parlait parfaitement le français et nous avons beaucoup appris. Sans un guide aurait été impossible de réaliser la gloire de l'Acropole. Beau, éducatif et confortable 2 heures.

Nous avons énormément apprécié cette expérience. Anna était notre guide. Elle parle un parfait français et son profil d'historienne de l'art était précieux. J'ai aimé sa pédagogie, son vocabulaire riche et précis ainsi que tout ce qu'elle nous a fait découvrir lors de cette visite dans ce site magnifique de beauté et d'histoire. Je retiens vraiment ce moment comme l'un des meilleurs de mon séjour à Athènes. Merci à Anna !
