    Description

    Beat the crowds and explore the Acropolis on this guided walking tour. Skip-the-line tickets will get you straight through the gates as soon as they open and you’ll head directly to the Parthenon. Led by a local, expert guide, you’ll discover the history of this nearly 2,500-year-old compound. Enjoy stunning panoramic views of Athens, including the Greek Agora as you listen to your English-speaking guide reveal the secrets of this UNESCO-listed complex.

    The Parthenon isn’t the only highlight in the Acropolis though. As you walk around this ancient citadel you’ll pass by other impressive monuments such as the Monumental Gateway, the Erechtheion, the Temple of Athena Nike and Theatre of Dionysus, the oldest theatre in the world. Marvel at how the buildings have withstood fires, explosions, earthquakes and wars, yet still dominate the Athens skyline.

    Finally, head down the Acropolis complex towards the New Acropolis Museum. Again, there’s no waiting around as skip-the-line tickets grant you immediate entrance. Standing in the shadow of the Acropolis, the museum houses some of the best treasures that once decorated the citadel. Highlights include the Parthenon Marbles and the Caryatids, huge statues of women that once supported the Erechtheion. The tour will finish in the museum so you can explore the displays at your own pace.
