Private Half Day Walking Tour Acropolis..


Discover the ancient history of Athens under the light of the setting sun! Book our 4-hour Athens walking sunset tour and visit the magnificent architectural and artistic complex of the Acropolis. Visit the museum of Acropolis, the largest modern building erected so close to the ancient site and admire artifacts and sculptures originating from the numerous Acropolis buildings.

Since you will cover the distances on foot, you will be able to admire the Greek architecture and the culture, walking among traditional streets with taverns and other traditional shops.


Location

  • We will meet you at the Monastiraki or Syntagma square (the starting time depends on the time of the year). Our first stop will be at the Acropolis Museum, the largest modern building erected so close to the ancient site.  It is located by the southeastern slope of the Acropolis hill and on the ancient road, which in classical times led up to the "sacred rock".
  • Our tour will take us through the Museum's exhibition galleries, making regular stops and holding lively discussions with our Archaeologist-Host. We will admire the artifacts and sculptures originating from the numerous Acropolis buildings such as the Erechtheum, the Temple of Athena Nike and the Propylaea as well as from the Roman and early Christian Athens. Finally, as the museum is built over an extensive archaeological site, we will be able to see the excavations beneath through a transparent glass floor.
  • Our next  visit will be the Acropolis. We will view this magnificent architectural and artistic complex under the light of the setting sun. Wander inside the ancient citadel of Athens in the ethereal glow of the twilight, when the shadows of the Parthenon grow long and the ancient pillars create windows to an otherworldly light. Meet your licensed guide—an experienced archaeologist—and learn about the history of the hilltop, with evidence of habitation stretching back over 6,000 years. Explore the construction of its most famous buildings, including the venerable Parthenon, the Temple of Athena Nike, the Porch of the Caryatids at the Erechtheion, and the gateway to the Propylaea. Our tour ends at Monastiraki or Syntagma square The duration of the tour is about 4 hours and it can take place either in the morning or in the afternoon.
