ITINERARY

Right after the city walk we enter the Acropolis for a memorable tour. First we will explore the south slope of the hill which is of great religious and cultural significance. Dionysus, the god of wine and Asclepius, the god of medicine, were worshiped here. Dionysus Theater, where the ancient Greek drama was born, still preserved in the area. During our ascent to the hill we also visit the Odeon of Herodes Atticus. On the top we will admire the Propylea, the Temple of Athena Nike, the Parthenon and the Erechtheion with the Porch of the Maidens. Acquire a deeper understanding of the little secrets of the Rock: visual corrections, colours, architectural masterpieces and the stories behind them.

Meeting Point

The meeting point is outside Acropolis metro station 09:00am. Your tour guide will be standing next to the Metro sign, which is located on Makrigianni pedestrian walkway, holding a light blue Athenian Tours sign.
