    Description

    See the best of Athens in one morning with the 4-hour Best of Athens City Tour. Starting early, and with skip-the-line tickets, your expert local guide will lead you into the Acropolis and directly to the Parthenon. Dedicated to the goddess Athena and completed in 432 BC, the Parthenon is perhaps the most important and symbolic surviving building of Classical Greece. Though the Parthenon dominates the Acropolis, other highlights of this ancient citadel include the Monumental Gateway and the Erechtheion. Be sure to admire the spectacular views over Athens as your guide passionately explains the history of these monuments.

    From here you’ll head down towards the Ancient Greek Agora, which was the commercial and political centre of Athens. Learn about 2,500 years of Greek history as your English-speaking guide tells you about what daily life was really like during these ancient times. See historic monuments, civic establishments and ruins dating back over 2 millennia. The highlight here is the Temple of Hephaestus, one of the best-preserved ancient temples in the world.

    Finally, your guide will lead you into the historic Plaka neighbourhood where many archaeological sites are found throughout the labyrinth of streets. Follow your guide to see the likes of the Arch of Hadrian, the Lysicrates monument and the Tower of the Winds, which was the first meteorological station in the world. As your tour finishes in the shadow of the Acropolis, you’ll receive a special combo pass which you can use within 5 days to access 5 attractions, such as Hadrian’s Library and the Temple of Olympian Zeus.
