Full description
Meet your licensed guide, an experienced archaeologist, and walk to the Acropolis, one of the most important collections of ancient buildings in the world. Learn about the history of the hilltop, with evidence of habitation stretching back over 6,000 years.

Explore the construction of its most famous buildings, including the venerable Parthenon, the Temple of Athena Nike, the Porch of the Caryatids at the Erechtheion, and the gateway to the Propylaea.

As the sun sinks into the gulf, the twilight illuminates these ancient buildings in a timeless glow that conjures the spirit of 2,500 years of history. Admire the Theater of Dionysus, the first theater of human civilization, and the healing Temple of Asclepius. Listen as your guide talks about the importance of this place to classical civilization in the western hemisphere.
