Full description
Meet your friendly guide at the Acropolis Metro Station, then set out on your sightseeing adventure. The monuments of the Acropolis stand in harmony with their natural setting, and these unique masterpieces of architecture allow you to travel back in time to Ancient Greece.

As you wander around the many buildings that make up the Acropolis, listen to your guide’s fascinating commentary about the famous mythological legends of Ancient Greece as well as the era's most significant religious beliefs, cults, and how the some of the city’s modern day events are still connected to this sacred precinct.

After your tour of the Acropolis, walk downhill towards the traditional village of Anafiotika. Mimicking Cycladic architecture, with its stark white cubic houses, flat roofs and colorful shutters and doors, Anafiotika is a true hidden gem within the Greek metropolis. Learn about the fascinating history of this unique neighborhood, which was constructed in the 19th century when King Otto, sovereign of the newly established Greek monarchy, decided to revamp the capital.

The village provides the opportunity to escape the crows of Athens whilst soaking up views of the city jungle below. Spend some time wandering through the picturesque streets, admiring the many bougainvillea-covered walls, and soaking up the tranquil atmosphere.

Unser Guide Eva war sehr gut und hat äußerst detailliert erklärt. Hier merkte man deutlich Ihr Studium der Kunstgeschichte/Archäologie. Über die gesamte Dauer war es unmöglich sich jede Erklärung zu behalten und an manchen Stellen (auch aufgrund der Wetterbedingungen) hätte man etwas abkürzen können.
