Points of Interest and program highlights, in chronological sequence:
  • The National Archaeological Museum of Athens is the largest archaeological museum in Greece and one of the most important museums in the world devoted to ancient Greek art, housing some of the most important artifacts from a variety of archaeological locations around Greece from prehistory to late antiquity

  • The multiple-award-winning Acropolis Museum focuses on the findings of the archaeological site of the Acropolis of Athens. The museum was built to house every artifact found on the rock and on the surrounding slopes, from the Greek Bronze Age to Roman and Byzantine Greece. It lies over the ruins of a part of Roman and early Byzantine Athens

The tour runs from 14:00 till 16:00 at the National Archaeological Museum, followed by the city tour lasting 45 minutes, arriving at the Acropolis Museum at 17:00 with the tour ending there at 19:00.
