Now come to the natural fortress of the Acropolis, one of the most photographed and recognizable hills in the entire world. Accompanied by a knowledgeable guide, you will walk up the uneven footpath leading to the summit. Sights include the Propylaea, the Temple of Apteros Niki, the Erectheum, and the architectural triumph of the Parthenon.
Following your visit to the Acropolis, you will enjoy a three-course meal at a local restaurant. You will then have free time to wander around the picturesque streets of Plaka, the old preserved district of Athens that is filled with numerous arts and crafts shops, restaurants, and cafes. After a leisurely afternoon of exploring, you will board your coach for the return trip to the pier.

Special instructions: - The price of this tour includes a 17-seater deluxe minibus or 50-seater deluxe coach, a professional English-speaking guide, entrance fee to the Acropolis, and a three-course lunch (including a 1/2 bottle of wine, or one beer or soft drink per person at local restaurant).
- If you choose to go to the Acropolis Museum, a fee of €5 per person is not included and is payable upon entry. The Museum is closed on Mondays.
- The Acropolis may only be accessed by walking uphill. It is a strenuous walk and you must be in good physical condition. There is a pathway, but there are also steps near the top. Keep in mind that the weather may be very hot during the summer.
- If you prefer to wait while others visit the Acropolis, you may wait at the bottom near the bus. The bus will not be able to go to the foot of the Acropolis, so extra walking may be required. Your shopping time in the Plaka is on your own. There will be a meeting spot for the return transfer to your cruise ship.
