Begin your Athens walking tour at Syntagma Metro Station in central Athens. Greet your guide and head inside the station museum to explore what’s on show.
View the impressive exhibits, discovered during building work on the station. See the most prized items including tombstones, remnants of a 5th-century aqueduct, pottery and even a 2,000-year-old beehive.
Afterward, walk with your guide to the nearby Greek Parliament Building on Syntagma Square. Snap photos of the handsome building as you hear about its past as a royal palace.
Then, delve further into historical Athens. Walk along the charming streets and admire the elegant architecture and sites such as the Zeus Temple.
Continue along traffic-free Dionysiou Areopagitou Street around the Acropolis’ slopes. As you walk, absorb the breathtaking views of the Acropolis and Parthenon, and pass the ancient Theater of Dionysus and sites such as Philopappou Hill, the Odeon of Herodes Atticus, and Mars Hill.
Your tour ends at the Acropolis summit. Before leaving, you may wish to ask your guide for further tips for sightseeing in the city.
