Join us for Acropolis Cultural Tour
In this Acropolis Sightseeing tour we guide you through the most important cultural sites of classical Athens, the Acropolis of Athens and the Sanctuary of Dionisus. It is a tour that guarantees the best informative quick experience.
A.W.G. meeting point is going to be inside Acropolis Metro Station next to the validation tickets machines on the upper floor holding a sign with the logo Athens Walking Guide.
We start our tour inside the Acropolis metro station exploring the daily life of Ancient Athens through the displays of artifacts and casts of the “Parthenon marbles”. The majority of the subway stations in Athens have small exhibitions of archaeological artifacts that came to light during the construction of it. Then we take a nice short walk in the pedestrian streets of Makrigianni and Dionysus Areopagitou, nearby Plaka and the new Acropolis Museum, meeting with the locals (washroom stop).
Athens Walking Guide enters Acropolis from the south slope to avoid the crowds. There we will rediscover the sanctuary of Dionysus, which the great writers Aeschylus, Euripides and Sophocles performed their dramatic plays back in the 5th century B.C. In our way up to Acropolis, we are stopping under the shady place of Asclepius Sanctuary, god of medicine, adoring the breathtaking view of Athens and the Odeon of Herodes Atticus and the Philopappos monument.
