Experience this immersive virtual reality tour whilst you visit the Acropolis and the Agora. The duration of the tour is flexible as you may utilize the virtual reality cardboard goggles for as long as you wish and also keep them after your walking tour experience. Step back in time to visit and explore these cultural icons in all of their original splendour and glory. Be transported to the most important parts of ancient Athens and delve deep into the Acropolis. You commence your experience where democracy began and you can directly engage with the greatest philosophers the world has ever known.  Visit music halls, grand temples, ancient colonnades and take control of the order in which you view all of the sites.

Star rating:

Four stars because you can get cardboard VR glasses for 25 euros. The two women went to great lengths to explain. The shop itself is a bit disorganized, but that doesn't bother you on vacation. The free app has a size of 1.2 GB. You should be able to get it with LTE because I don't know what their WiFi is like at the moment. But otherwise the hammer. Acropolis, Delphi and more. You get a wonderful idea. Navigation is child's play. You can use it anywhere, even at home. One device is enough for two or three people. You just take turns. (The same developer has other cities in the store as a free app, also for iOS). We have no regrets at all - and are absolutely useful for my students in history lessons!

They forgot to mention in the ad That the program you need to get when arriving at their shop would take an hour to Download if you could find good Wi-Fi somewhere. I couldnt, so I gave up.
