What You Can Expect

Viator Exclusive: Acropolis of Athens, New Acropolis Museum and Greek Dinner

Visit the New Acropolis Museum with an expert historical guide!

Arrive at Athens Red Line ticket station to meet your guide, an experienced archaeologist, and then start your Viator Exclusive — a unique combination of a tour, museum visit and dining experience at the Acropolis of Athens. Enter from the south slope of the acropolis and set off on your leisurely walking tour of some of the world’s finest monuments.

Along the way, listen as your guide shares knowledgeable insight of the citadel’s ruins including excavation details. Visit the Theatre of Dionysus — an amphitheater that is arguably the birthplace of the performing arts. Perch yourself on one of the stone seats to imagine the sights and sounds experienced by ancient theatergoers who came to watch plays by Greek writers Aeschylus, Sophocles and Euripides. You’ll also pass the Odeon of Herodes Atticus; the theater is still used today during the Athens Festival from May to October.

Find peace and quiet at an asclepieion — a healing temple that honored the god of medicine Asclepius — before continuing to one of the most recognized buildings on the planet: the Parthenon. Meander around the perimeter of the temple to learn more about how it was constructed for the goddess Athena.

Once you familiarize yourself with the site's classical architecture, head indoors to the New Acropolis Museum for a brief break and refreshments (own expense) in the cafe. Ranked one of the top five museums in the world, the New Acropolis Museum boasts collections of statues and other relics of everyday life in several galleries. In the Gallery of the Slopes of the Acropolis, the glass floor occasionally reveals an archaeological excavation site.

End the day with a delicious dinner at a nearby restaurant that affords views of the Parthenon and surrounding hills. Indulge in an authentic Greek meal paired with a bottle of wine as you discuss the history you discovered on this exclusive tour.
