1. Athens: Acropolis and Parthenon Guided Walking Tour
Take in the ancient wonders of Athens. Walk through tree-lined streets to the foothills of the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Acropolis, one of the world’s most revealing archaeological sites. Beat the crowds and head for the south slope of the Acropolis to pick up your skip-the-line tickets and make your way inside to see the ancient treasures that await. Stop at the Dionysus Sanctuary, dedicated to the Greek god of wine and fertility. Once inside the Acropolis, get up close to important sights like the Propylaea gateway, Erechtheion, Temple of Athena Nike, and Parthenon. Learn the history of these fascinating ruins from your guide. Once at the summit of the sacred hill, take in the sweeping panoramas of Athens. Learn about the excavations, and get an insight into the citadel’s ruins. Hear about surrounding monuments, including Mars Hill and the Odeon of Herodes Atticus. Conclude your tour at the summit of the Acropolis, leaving you free to continue exploring the site at your own pace. Choose between an early morning, morning, or afternoon guided tour.
