    Description

    Although Athens was only the centre of the ancient world for a relatively short period of time, its influence has reverberated down through the centuries. Its ancient buildings, such as the Parthenon, are genuinely iconic and its culture still influences us today.

    Discover some of the secrets of this incredible city on this fascinating and informative guided tour of two of the city’s most interesting destinations. First, you will visit the Acropolis Museum, where, thanks to your skip-the-line access, you and your group won’t need to waste time in the queue. Inside, your expert guide will show you the museum’s most important artefacts, including part of the famous Parthenon Frieze, and the Erectheion Caryatids, telling you the fascinating stories that lie behind them.

    On your way to your next location, you will see the Arch of Hadrian and the last-standing remnants of the Temple of Olympian Zeus. When you arrive at the Panathenaic Stadium, you’ll jump the queue again and go straight into this impressive marble stadium that’s been hosting sporting events for 2,300 years, including twice being used as a venue for the modern Olympic Games. You’ll actually be able to walk on the track where ancient athletes would have competed 300 years before the birth of Christ! This brilliant, comprehensive tour is an excellent, relaxed way to learn more about the history of Athens, so buy your tickets online today!
