We start the tour with a visit to the Acropolis hill. On our way up, we will visit the Dionysus Theater, where all the famous ancient dramas and tragedies were first performed. We will walk around the stunning Odeon of Herodes Atticus, and the sanctuary of the healing god Asclepius. On the top of the hill we will visit the Propylea, the Temple of Nike, the Erechtheion Temple, and of course the Parthenon; the symbol of democracy and western civilization. Dating back to 5th century B.C, these monuments are testimonials of the glorious ancient Athens and the Golden Age of Pericles. 

Right after the Acropolis tour we will have the opportunity to visit the Acropolis Museum located just a few minutes walk from the Acropolis site. On the ground floor the exhibited artifacts reveal to us facets of the Athenian daily life; we get to know the wedding customs, the children's favorite toys, the healing techniques, the religious practices. On the first floor, you will experience standing at a breathing distance from the mysterious archaic statues of the 6th century B.C that once adorned the Acropolis. Be fascinated by walking next to the Caryatids and huge pieces of the Acropolis entrance. At the last floor, next to the breathtaking view of the Acropolis, one can admire the original unique in concept and artistic excellence Parthenon frieze.

Kindly note that a 10 minute photo stop is included through the tour of the Acropolis. Between the Acropolis tour and the Acropolis Museum tour there is an approximate 15-20 minutes break during which you may get a drink.
