Tour program

Meeting with your guide: Syntagma metro station at 9:30am

End of tour: Acropolis at 1:00pm

The tour begins inside the Syntagma metro station, where your professional guide will show you shortly the archaeological exhibits that came to light during the construction of the metro.
You will then continue on to Syntagma Square, see the House of the Greek parliament ("Vouli") and watch the changing of the guards at the Monument to the Unknown Soldier.
A pleasant walk through the National Gardens will follow and on to the Zappeion Hall, the Temple of Zeus and the Hadrian's Arch.
Passing by the historical, picturesque Plaka district, we finally reach the Acropolis. Your guide will give you in-depth guided tour of the history of this world heritage site and its breathtaking monuments including the Parthenon, the Erechtheion, the Propylaia, the Nike Temple. See also in the surrounding the Athenian Agora, the Observatory, the Hill of Democracy (Pnyx), Mars and Philoppapos Hills, the Odeon of Herodes Atticus and the Theater of Dionysos.
At the end of the tour -and since you are so close- do not miss the opportunity to visit the Acropolis Museum on your own.

Excellent tour. We were in a group of 7, not including the guide. Small enough to get personalized information. Sites seen were great and the guide was very knowledgable.
