What to visit: our suggestions
Athens has a lot to offer its visitors, therefore you can personalise your schedule as you wish through the booking form or directly with your guide, but if you need some quick ideas then we have listed the most popular private tours.
- ACROPOLIS TOUR + MUSEUM: During this 4-hour tour, you will climb to the top of the city at about 156 metres above sea level to visit the famous Acropolis, recognised as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1987. It is the largest archaeological site in Ancient Greece, a monument of majestic beauty, despite the numerous wars and bombings that have damaged it over the millennia. A few steps away from the majestic architectural complex, is the museum, which is home to many archaic statues, a reproduction of the Acropolis and much more.
- ACROPOLIS TOUR + DIONISIO'S THEATRE: As an alternative to the previous tour, you can choose to visit the Acropolis next to the remains of Dionisio's Theatre. This emblematic place is especially remembered today for having seen the birth of the Greek tragedy since it was the first venue for Dionysian celebrations, gladiatorial fights and major celebrations in general.
- ARCHAEOLOGICAL MUSEUM TOUR + ATHENS CENTRE: This 4-hour tour combines a walk through the most picturesque and characteristic streets of the historical centre with a visit to the National Archaeological Museum of Athens, one of the most prestigious museums in the world. Inside, you will be able to admire exhibitions that tell the story of Ancient Greece from the Mycenaean period to the modern one, with a particular focus on the Hellenic period.
- AGORA TOUR: The other symbolic place of Greek archaeology is the Agora, that is, the square that was once the centre of the social, political and commercial life of the ancient city of Athens. This timeless place is particularly damaged, but so emotionally charged that it is still considered one of the most representative places of the city. In this tour the guide will show you the objects found and guarded inside the Agora Museum and a few metres away you can also admire the famous Temple of Hephaestus. This Doric temple is one of the oldest and best preserved Greek temples in history, probably because it was converted into a Christian church.
