Explore the Acropolis and discover the ancient temples of Parthenon, Erechteion and Athena Nike, before climbing the Philopappos, where there stands an archaic marble tomb monument.
Then, visit the Pnyx, located west of the Acropolis and once the meeting place for the democratic assembly, before continuing to the historical neighborhood of Plaka, close to the Thission Temple. Here, you will pass the Ancient Agora, best-known for its notable monuments such as the Stoa of Attalus, Hadrian's Library, and the Tower of the Winds. Visit the Areopagus, or Hill of Mars, famous for the speech delivered there by the apostle Paul regarding the identity of the “unknown god", before passing the Odeon of Herodes Atticus, an ancient theater, still used today for open-air concerts and theatrical performances.
Finally, your tour comes to an end outside the Parliament Building in Syntagma Square, where you will watch the ceremonial changing of the guards at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.
It is highly recommended to wear shoes with rubber soles when visiting the Acropolis. Expect uneven surfaces and some steep inclines.
