Acropolis of Athens Walking Tour
Discover the history of the city of Athens by exploring its most famous place with our Acropolis of Athens Walking Tour. Together with our Evolved Guide certified local tourist guide you will take a journey back in time of millennia and discover the places that have made the human history. The Acropolis is the highest part of the city (it is in fact a 156 m high hill) and all the most important monuments of Athens were built here. Your local guide will tell you the history of its most famous monuments such as the Propylaea, the monumental entrance to the Acropolis; it preserves, on its right, a small temple dedicated to Athena Nike, Athena the Winner, and built to commemorate the victories of Athens against the Persians. Admire the Caryatids, the female statues that support the Loggia of the Erechtheion: the Erechtheion, which takes its name from the famous Athenian king, is a temple with a very particular plant and it was dedicated to Athena Polia and Poseidon-Erechtheus.
Of all the buildings built on the Acropolis, the most important is certainly the Parthenon, built between 447 and 438 BC, and dedicated to Athena Parthènos, Athena the Virgin. The monument is certainly the most famous temple in the whole world, a symbol of Athens and Greece but, more generally, of the entire ancient world.
From the top of the Acropolis you will have an incredible view of the city and of the underlying monuments such as the Theater of Dionysius and the Odeion of Herodes Atticus, the structures used for musical and theatrical performances.
During the guided tour you can admire a complex of buildings unique in the world.
