Full description
Meet your dedicated guide at a hot spot for traditional Greek delicacies, where there are restroom facilities and you can purchase water or snacks. Then let your guide take you onto the Pnyx Hill, which is the actual birthplace of democracy.

Continue to immerse yourself in Ancient Greek history on a 50-minute tour of the world-famous Acropolis in Athens. Skip the ticket line and discover the cradle of the Western civilization on a guided visit in a small group. Admire the stunning architecture of the Parthenon Temple and learn the importance of the Erechtheion Temple. Hear myths and stories about ancient Athens from your expert guide.
