Athens is the largest city and the capital of Greece and, even to this day, elements of its ancient past are still evident as you stroll through its streets.

This tour involves many historical periods of the city, found in different areas all within a short walking distance of Constitution (Syntagma) Square.

The most famous monuments in Athens, plus the Acropolis, a world heritage site, are part of this comprehensive tour.

Our guide will give information about all the sites visited to make the tour as comprehensible and pleasant as possible.

A Walk Through the History of Athens

Our tour begins at Syntagma Metro Station, firstly by visiting the museum of the Metro Station (for approximately 10 – 15 minutes), which exhibits ancient artifacts from Athens, found during the excavation and construction of its underground metro.

The tour then continues to the Greek Parliament Building, and the Memorial of the Unknown Soldier to observe the changing of the guards.

After this, we continue to the National Gardens, a lovely area to escape the noisy city, and then to the Zappeion Megaron.

From here you have an excellent view of the Temple of Zeus, with its 17 columns still standing, each 17 meters high, and also the Arch of Hadrian, built in 132 AD to mark the limits of the new and ancient city of Athens. Both of these will be visited for a close up view.

From the Arch of Hadrian we cross over to the beautiful Dionysiou Areopagitou walkway.

The Acropolis Tour

On our way to the Acropolis, we will pass the new Acropolis Museum, home to the exhibits found during the many years of excavations on the Acropolis.

We will enter the Acropolis from the southern side, to first visit the Ancient Theatre of Dionysus, built in the 5th century BC, dedicated to the god of wine making.

As we ascend up to the Acropolis (also called the Sacred Hill), we have a lovely view of modern Athens.

Our guide will give you all the relevant information about the many monuments on and around the Acropolis:

  • The famous Parthenon, the most important monument of Ancient Greek civilization, dedicated to Athena the patron goddess of Athens
  • The Erechtheion, located on the most sacred part of the hill
  • Propylaia
  • The Temple of Nike
  • The Agrippa Monument
  • The Herodes Atticus Theater, built in 160 AD is used in the Athens Summer Festival to house world famous performers creating a marvelous, unforgettable experience
  • The Ancient Agora was the centre of ancient Athens – all the law courts, political meetings and juries took place here
  • The Observatory
  • Philopappos Hill or (Muses Hill), from where you can have a fantastic view of the Acropolis and all of Athens
  • Mars or Areopagus Hill
  • Pnyx Hill, where the ancient Athenians gathered for political discussions

Our tour will end on the Acropolis, where there will be ample time to take memorable photos and have a magnificent view of Athens.
