Full description
Enjoy a privately guided tour to 2 of Athens’ most stunning museums. Begin your tour by meeting your guide at the Museum for Cycladic Art whenever works best for your schedule. Collecting the artworks of the Cycladic civilization, which existed on the Cyclades islands from circa 3200 through 1050 BCE, the museum tells the tale of a vibrant bronze-age culture. Marvel at the iconic Cycladic figurines, whose exact purpose and meaning confound archaeologists to this day. Afterwards, head to the Benaki Museum to broaden your view of Greek history. Comprising a massive collection of Greek art, the Benaki is the only museum in Greece to showcase artifacts from every era of the country's history. Gaze at some of the earliest known artifacts of Greek antiquity, alongside renaissance-era paintings by El Greco. All the while, your guide will share priceless insights that you will hear nowhere else.
