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!

Make your own way to the Athens Red Line ticket station and meet your guide, a professional archaeologist. Get a fascinating introduction to the afternoon ahead, and then set out on your Viator Exclusive: a unique mix of an Acropolis walking tour, New Acropolis Museum visit and dinner.
Walk up the south slope of the Acropolis, the ancient hilltop citadel that’s home to the remnants of several magnificent buildings. Constructed during the heyday of ancient Greece in the 5th century BC, the area includes the famous Parthenon.

At the top, take a tour of the ruins as your guide provides insightful commentary on their construction, history and excavation. Stroll to the Theatre of Dionysus — an amphitheater regarded as the birthplace of the performing arts. Settle on a stone seat and imagine the sights and sounds experienced by long-ago audiences who came here to watch plays by Greek writers such as Euripides, Sophocles and Aeschylus.

Gaze at the Odeon of Herodes Atticus; a theater still used every summer for the Athens Festival, and inspect the site of the Asclepeion — where a healing temple dedicated to the god of medicine Asclepius once stood.

Then, make your way to the Acropolis’ showpiece: the Parthenon. One of the world’s most recognized buildings, this spectacular temple was designed to give thanks to Athena, Athens’ patron goddess. Walk around the perimeter with your guide as you learn how this beautifully symmetrical Doric gem has served as a temple, church and even a mosque through the centuries.

Continue to the stunning New Acropolis Museum, the ultra-modern museum that contains the archaeological treasures found at the Acropolis site. Explore the collections of statues, friezes and other antiquities in the light and airy galleries as your guide uncovers intriguing facts about their history. As you walk around, gaze down through the glass floors to see the showcased archaeological excavations where many of the exhibits were discovered.

Lastly, make your way to a nearby, well-regarded restaurant that boasts fabulous views of the Parthenon. Take a seat and savor a delicious meal of classic Greek dishes, washed down with a bottle of wine. As you eat, admire the views and chat over your afternoon of fascinating discoveries. Your experience ends when you leave the restaurant.

Anna was an amazing tour guide who clearly loved sharing information and insights about Ancient Greece. We would most highly recommend this tour if she is to be your guide. Meal was good, but the tour was definitely the piece of this package we will always remember.

Our guide was wonderful and thoughtful about our wishes. The Acropolis was spectacular and the museum was fantastic too. If you go to the Acropolis, don't miss the museum, the history it houses is incredible. Our dinner was great, food was excellent and ambience was perfect. We would definitely recommend this tour and restaurant.

This tour was amazing! Marisa was an excellent guide, very knowledgeable and funny. She had no problems answering all our questions, and her great personality makes the tour so much fun. We had a great time, and learned a lot along the way. Definitely recommend this tour if you'll be in Athens. The acropolis is magical plus you get stunning views of the city, and visiting the museum is a great combo. Highly recommend!

Amazing tour. The guide Anna was highly professional and knowledgeable about the subject matter. Learned so much that I would have missed without the tour. She maintained a high level of energy throughout the entire visit and also shared a lot about Greek life and society beyond the content of the tour. Dinner was perfect too. Highly recommended for both a quick stopover in Athens or a longer stay.

Wonderful tour with a very knowledgeable tour guide who made sure she let others know that our tour was private! Fantastic dinner afterward at Attikos restaurant.

Thanasos was an excellent guide and the experience was unforgettable. Without his historical/philosophical/theatrical commentary the visit would not have come alive as it did. A little more time at the museum would have been good. The restaurant Manh Manh was a wonderful culmination to our day. Highly recommended.

This was the best way to see the Acropolis. Our tour guide Sophia was great. You could tell she was passionate about the history and information she was presenting. Not like taking a robotic guide tour, she customized for the things we seemed most interested in. To top it off dinner was amazing.
