Things to do in Acropolis of Athens

4.5/5 (171)

The Acropolis of Athens is a unique place in the world, one of the few where the history of mankind seems to revive, inebriating the present with its ancient scent. Visiting the Acropolis, symbol of Athens, means to remain amazed and enchanted at the sight of the sum of the ideal classical beauty.

Built on a rock which rises to 156 meters above sea level, the Acropolis (from the Greek "high city") was the religious heart of the Greek capital. Actually its history has even deeper roots: the rocky outcrop was the site of fortifications and the prince’s residence in the Mycenaean age. In the first half of the sixth century B.C. it ceased to be a fortress and became a place of worship, housing the temple dedicated to the local deities.

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.'

“We felt like we saw everything in Athens with this tour, although it was a bit long and could have used a few more breaks. We found the best price on Musement and enjoyed booking through them.”
