See the best of what Athens has to offer with our world famous Athens Acropolis and City Tour. This is a detailed guided tour that will take you through the historical parts of the city, to the Acropolis of Athens and its famous monuments.

This comprehensive city tour will show you some of the most important landmarks and sights of the historical center of Athens but also a thorough visit to the Acropolis, where your guide will give you an in-depth guided tour of this world heritage site and its major breathtaking monuments all in one fascinating tour.

The tour begins inside the Syntagma metro station where you will visit the metro Museum (in 10 - 15 minutes) with very interesting archaeological artifacts from the daily life of Ancient Athenians that came to light during the construction of the metro.

You will then continue on to the House of the Greek Parliament, the Monument to the Unknown Soldier and watch the changing of the guards.

Your tour continues towards the National Gardens and onto the beautiful neoclassical Zappeion Hall, in front of which are the surviving columns of the Zeus Temple and Hadrian’s Arch. You will have the opportunity to visit both of these monuments.

From there you walk towards the Acropolis through the beautiful pedestrian walkway of Dionysiou Areopagitou.

You will enter the Acropolis from the south slope to avoid the crowds and also to visit the Dionysus Sanctuary and Dionysus Theatre built in the 5th century BC. As you begin to ascend the sacred hill a breathtaking view of the city below will unfold.

Your guide will give you a detailed explanation of the glorious monuments of the Acropolis such as the Parthenon, the Erechtheion, the Propylaia, the Nike Temple, the Agrippa monument and the surrounding monuments such as the Herodes Atticus Odeon, the Ancient Agora, the Observatory as well as the Philopappos, Mars and Pnyx Hills.

The tour ends in the Acropolis where you will have plenty of time to take pictures and enjoy the wonderful views down of the city of Athens.
