Then, pay your admission (own expense) and head into the Acropolis. Explore key sights such as the Propylaea, Erechtheion, and Temple of Athena Nike, and marvel at the Parthenon as your guide explains its significance. Then, gaze down on Athens and learn about the monuments below, including the agora and Odeon of Herodes Atticus. Continue to the New Acropolis Museum, considered one of the world’s top five museums.

Thank you for your comment, we appreciate it! It is true that the tour will be much more enjoyable with one of our wonderful licensed guides! The experience will be enriched to the maximum in this way... In case of strollers, there is the possibility to leave them in the main entrance of the Acropolis where they will be kept until you finish!
