Things to do in Acropolis Museum

4.4/5 (35)

Built just a few meters from the sacred rock itself, the Acropolis Museum showcases ancient Greek civilisation at its best. The museum’s exterior is as impressive as the wealth of exhibits inside. Upon entering, glass floors reveal an ancient archaeological excavation site. Continue your journey and discover elegant Caryatids, friezes that paint vivid scenes of Athenian life, and a head statue of Alexander the Great. A top sight is the Parthenon Gallery where grand marble sculptures stand against a backdrop of panoramic views of the ancient Acropolis and modern-day Athens. During evening visits, the statues shine in the sunset’s glow. After exploring, the terrace cafe invites you to savour Greek flavours overlooking the Acropolis and the gift shop on the first floor is where you can pick up some souvenirs.

Private Athens Tour with Acropolis and Plaka

The ancient Greeks left behind a treasure trove of monuments, statues and artefacts in Athens. And on this private tour, you'll take in all the top spots with an expert guide. Exclusively for you and your party, you'll tour highlights including the Roman Agora, Hadrian's Library, the Plaka neighbourhood and the UNESCO-listed Acropolis. Vassiliki, one of our expert local guides, says, ‘Acropolis means “high city” and it usually refers to any settlement built on top of a hill. You'll find many towns in Greece that have an acropolis, but the Acropolis of Athens is certainly the most famous.'You'll start with a guided tour of the Acropolis – with skip-the-line tickets, there'll be no waiting around. Soak up wow-factor views over Athens at the Areopagus – a rocky hill where legend has it the Greek gods would hold court. Let your guide bring history to life as you marvel at ancient landmarks like the Roman Agora, the Theatre of Dionysus and the still-standing columns of the Asklepieion and Parthenon. Then, it's on to the city's Instagram-worthy old quarter, Plaka – the capital's most appealing and historic neighbourhood. Always thronged with a mix of locals and visitors, the pedestrianised lanes are brimming with tavernas whose tables spill onto the streets. Vassiliki says, ‘Athenians call this area “the neighbourhood of the Gods,' as it has been inhabited since the days of ancient Greece. In fact, excavations show that the street layout has barely changed since antiquity.'
