Description

The tour starts at the lively area of Monastiraki square, in the heart of Athens where you will discover iconic landmarks, the Flea Market, lots of souvenir shops, and traditional tavernas all under the majestic eye of the Acropolis.

Enter the most unique part of the city and discover with your knowledgeable local tour leader, its tranquil, picturesque and mystic hidden corners. Anafiotika is located on a hill above Plaka district; for a while, forget the city sounds and get the feeling that you are walking through the alleys of a Cycladic island however, with a history of over 3.000 years! Stroll around the little alleys and admire the white washed cubic houses with bright painted shutters and beautifully carved wooden doors, a typical Cycladic architecture! 

Connect the dots between “yesterday” and “today” by letting your tour leader unveil unknown parts of history and significant details on historical buildings, beautiful old chapels and numerous monuments. Create memories that will stay with you forever and…always have your camera ready!

Find hidden gems of unspoiled beauty and magnificent views and learn secrets unknown even to many Athenians.

After the first part of the tour, you will be introduced to your guide for the Acropolis part of the tour and you’ll have a chance to get a snack or a drink before the second part of the tour begins.

Entering on the south slope of the Acropolis, you’ll visit the Dionysus Sanctuary and Dionysus Theater before you walk up the slope leading to the Acropolis monuments. Panoramic views of the city will be perfect for Instagram-ready photos.

During your tour, you’ll gain insight into the significance of the historic monuments of Acropolis, including the Parthenon, the Erechtheion, the Propylaea, the Nike Temple as well as other significant sights of Athens including the Odeon of Herodes Atticus, the Ancient Agora, the National Observatory of Athens and the city’s scenic hills: Filoppapos, Mars, and Pnyx.

Value for money

The best way to see Athens. Sufficient explanation, but sometimes was difficult to understand due to the noise of the sounds.
