Visit Athens and the Acropolis Museum, an essential visit to discover the most significant monuments of the Greek capital, accompanied by a specialized guide.
Athens is considered to be one of the oldest cities in the world, continuously inhabited, with more than 3000 years of written history and references that reach up to 6000 years of history.
Today as the capital of Greece, it is the largest city with almost half of the Greek population.
Taking these facts into account, the visitor can imagine that Athens is an urban museum where historical eras are noticed in its streets and its secret treasures.
Surrounded by the mountains of Ymittos, Pendeli and Parnitha, facing the sea towards the Saronic Gulf, the Athenians controlled everything from the city center and in particular from Parthenon.
We begin our sightseeing of Athens with a stop at the “Panathenaic Stadium” or “Kalimarmaro” which has been the Olympic stadium of ancient times, reformed for the first modern Olympic games in 1896, held in Athens.
We continue to pass in front of the temple of “Olympian Zeus”, which was the largest temple in the Hellenic world dedicated to Zeus, with the “Arch of Hadrian” welcoming you at the entrance.
Then we reach the Syntagma square (Constitution Square) where the Greek parliament is located with the monument dedicated to the “Unknown Soldier”
Passing through Omonia Square, the second most important square in Athens, we arrive at the Acropolis. The Parthenon contemplating Athens at 360º, a symbol of democracy and the golden years of Pericles, thrills all visitors.
We finish the visit with the new “Museum of Acropolis”, inaugurated in 2009. A museum with the important archaeological and architectural value. The collections exhibitions date from the Archaic Era and the Classical Age when some of the objects are more than 2.500 years old.
