  • Join a local licensed guide and skip-the-line to one of the world's most important architectural heritage sites
  • Uncover the history as you walk amongst amazing ruins - you'll take some great photos! See the Parthenon - the most imitated building in the world
  • Enter the Dionysus Theater and Sanctuary, get a free Athens Guide magazine and an Athens map to carry on your exploring

Join a guide for an in-depth exploration of the Acropolis! Learn the history of this ancient Greek wonder, see the Parthenon - the most famous ancient Greek temple ever built, dedicated to Athena, the goddess of war - and get the most stunning views of Athens from the rocky outcrop.

There's loads to see at what's been the main attraction in Athens since the 5th century BC. Marvel at the Parthenon, feel your jaw drop in the Dionysus Theater, and enjoy the serene silence of the Sanctuary. Check out the views from up high and be sure to wear non-slippy shoes!

But first, meet your guide. They'll be waiting for you with an orange Athens Walking Tours sign at the Fresko Yogurt Bar.

Flash your handy mobile ticket and you're off up a rocky, sloping path to the heart of the Acropolis, Greece's treasured ancient citadel.

The Acropolis has been studied for centuries and, still, no one's entirely sure how they did it! Try to figure it out for yourself as you skip the line and take a guided tour into the very cradle of Western civilization.

The guide, Vicki was very knowledgeable and friendly. 90 minutes was just right. Much more interesting when you’re well informed. It also made our subsequent visit to the Acropolis Museum better.
