Pristine Parthenon: Acropolis Tour and Skip the Line Acropolis Museum Tour
With a local guide
About this experience
Do you want to visit the Parthenon without the crowds?
You will meet your friendly local guide and group of no more than 15 people near the Acropolis and then go inside just as the gates open.
We will be the first of the day and get the chance to explore the Acropolis surrounded by a unique atmosphere. We will surpass other Acropolis walking tours that pause to visit temples and monuments and go straight up to the hill, to visit the Parthenon with virtually no one else around!
Our guide will introduce you to the millennia-spanning story of this majestic monument, telling you some of the less-known facts, including why it has never been replicated.
When the crowds will reach the Parthenon, we will do the opposite: we will come down the hill and visit the other landmarks on the Acropolis, such as Erechtheon, the Temple of Athena Nike, the Theater of Dionysus (the oldest theater in the world) and the Theater of Herodes Atticus. You’ll also enjoy beautiful views over the Greek Agora, which was the political center of Athens, the archetypical image of democracy.
Then it will be time to visit the New Acropolis Museum, always using our skip-the-line tickets doing no wait at all. You will admire a carefully-selected collection of the artistic works, statues, and tools that once adorned the hill.
The most beloved piece in the museum are the Caryatids: huge statues of women that once supported the entablature of the Erechtheion (the now there are reproductions on the actual temple) and the Parthenon Marbles. We will also visit the archeological excavations, entering the underground area of the museum.
Your passionate and expert guide will explain to you the value of these stones and you will understand why we still recognize these to be among the greatest works of art.
The guided tour will finish inside the museum so you can spend how much time you want there, continuing the exploration on your own, following useful tips from our guide.
Don't miss the chance to visit the Parthenon and the Acropolis as you should!
Take this pristine visit and discover great Greek art and architecture!
