Description

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.


Please note:

  • It is highly recommended to wear shoes with rubber soles when visiting the Acropolis. Expect uneven surfaces and some steep inclines.

  • Check with your Virtuoso Travel Advisor for holidays or week days where museums and archaeological sites may be closed.

Overwhelmingly....YES!

We realize our trip was only as enjoyable as the many layers of details set up prior to our departure. We had many many transfers on our recent family trip to Greece and every driver was on time, friendly, professional in dress and demeanor, and proficient in English. Our local guides were knowledgeable and informative....and willing to tailor our excursions to our personal interests and time line. We could not have been happier with our hotel selections. Our Villa in Naxos was a dream come-true in every-way. Beautiful secure, well maintained Villa and surrounding grounds. The location provided privacy and proximity to activities, and restaurants with a staff (that became like family) on site-24/7. A overwhelmingly positive experience!!
