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.
Note: After the first part of the tour, which ends on the Acropolis, you will have time to take more photos before walking to the Ancient Agora with your guide. Before the guided tour to the Agora, there will be no time for a leisurely lunch, so please make sure you have with you a snack and a bottle of water.
Ancient Agora: The Core of Ancient Athenian Life
After making your way through the narrow streets of the picturesque Plaka, under the Acropolis, you will end up at the Ancient Greek Agora. Of all Athens' ancient sights, the Agora firmly defines the city’s status as the cradle of Western civilization. This was where ancient Greek democracy came to life. It was a commercial, political, religious, and cultural hub where the greatest Greeks such as Plato, Socrates, Demosthenes, e.t.c. theorized, spoke out and debated.
Explore the temples, an ancient concert hall and imagine ancient life under its famous long, marble collonaded arcades. You’ll also see the significant artefacts at the Agora Museum, located in the two-storied Stoa of Attalos which was built in the 2nd century BC.
The tour ends at the Ancient Agora.
