Description

Under the guidance of a specially trained, expert licensed guide, you'll marvel at the Acropolis and masterpieces of Antiquity such as the awe-inspiring Parthenon, ancient Greece’s mythical gods and its legendary heroes.

Thanks to a wealth of knowledge and a wonderful ability to bring history and mythology to life through lively accounts and descriptions, your specially trained guide will show you one of humanity’s most defining landmarks in a way never experienced before. 

Even more impressive, however, is how your guide will use 3D models and tactile maps to allow you to fully appreciate through your sense of touch the grandeur and beauty of the Parthenon, the Erechtheion, the Temple of Athena Nike and the other structures on the city's Sacred Rock.

Learn about mythical Greek gods, legendary heroes and actual historical figures such as Pericles and Phidias, and their connection to this special place. Discover the many different functions that the Acropolis buildings served and the changes they have undergone, all as you enjoy a one-of-a-kind tour offered at an outdoor archaeological site anywhere in the world!

Highlights:

  • The visit’s pace and itinerary are specially designed for low-vision and blind visitors, allowing them to enjoy it without feeling rushed or pressured by time.
