Description

Experience the Acropolis Museum with a skip-the-line e-ticket combined with a self-guided audio tour on your smartphone. Marvel at the museum’s fascinating collection of ancient artifacts, including some of the finest examples of ancient Greek art.

Enjoy at your own pace the dazzling Acropolis Museum with a skip-the-line e-ticket combined with a self-guided audio tour on your smartphone. Receive your e-ticket by email, download the self-guided audio tour on your smartphone and travel back in time to experience the glory of Classical Athens. Listening to a brilliantly tied narrative, you'll experience the architectural wonders of the Golden Age of Athens and admire some of the finest examples of ancient Greek art. 

As you enter the museum, you’ll admire the impressive glass floor showcasing ruins of an ancient settlement buried below and gear yourself up for the first gallery, where you’ll get an insider’s view of everyday life in ancient Athens. You’ll discover bygone wedding customs and ancient surgery practices as you gradually ascend to the next floor, where the exhibits will guide you through the riveting journey of the city’s transition to democracy. 

Weaving around monsters, heroes, gods and iconic representations of the human body, you’ll follow the evolution of ancient art. Continuing to the third floor, you’ll get straight into the heart of the Parthenon and see the narrative of the Panathenaic Procession, pieced together on the frieze of the temple. Engrossing tales from Greek Mythology depicted on the metopes and pediments of the temple, such as the birth of goddess Athena and the battle of the Centaurs, will fire up your imagination. 

Finally, your tour ends with the culminating age of Greek style, the classical period, and some of the most famed artworks of Ancient Athens, including the iconic Caryatids, the curvaceous maidens who have witnessed the turbulent 2.500-year story of the Acropolis and are waiting to share it with you.

This is a unique opportunity to enjoy a hassle-free visit to one of the best-ranked museums in the world through an award-winning storytelling concept!
