The Acropolis, the landmark of Greece!

Our walking tour begins with a visit to the Parliament building in Syntagma square with the changing of the Guards.

From the very heart of Athens Syntagma square we will continue through the National Gardens, the neoclassical Zappeion conference center (The oldest in Europe), the temple of Olympian Zeus, Hadrian’s Arch and across to the old town, Plaka district.

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:
