Classical Athens – Walking tour (8 hours)

The tour starts with the visit to the Acropolis hill, the highlight of Athens.

We go up the west slope of the Acropolis hill, where we admire the timeless beauty of the masterpieces of the classical architecture of the 5th century B.C., the Propylaea, the Nike Temple, the Parthenon and the Erechtheion. Passing by the Mars hill and walking down the south slope of the Acropolis we arrive at the ancient Agora, the political, commercial and social centre of ancient Athens. Walking through Plaka we explore other major historic sites, such as the Roman Forum, the Library of Hadrian and Monastiraki square. After a lunch break we head to the Acropolis museum, one of the most beautiful museums of the world. Lying directly at the foot of the Acropolis hill and across the Theatre of Dionysos it houses the majestic marble sculptures of the monuments of the Acropolis.
