Overview

This comprehensive walking tour of Athens takes you to all of the city’s main attractions in a single day.

Your Athens Day Tour starts with skip-the-line tickets to the Acropolis, the mighty temple stronghold at the heart of the city. Following a specially-timed itinerary, you’ll reach the Parthenon with fewer crowds. Your guide will tell you the stories and secrets behind the jaw-dropping building, then show you around the other main sights of the Acropolis including the Monumental Gateway, Erechtheum, and Theaters of Dionysus and Herodes Atticus.

After your guided Acropolis Tour, you’ll head down the hill and use skip-the-line tickets to enter the Ancient Greek Agora - the commercial heart of Athens over 2,000 years ago - to see buildings like the Stoa of Attalos and the incomparable Temple of Hephaestus. 

The morning section of your tour ends with an Athens City Tour through the historic neighbourhood of Plaka. You’ll walk the oldest street in the world and take in lovely views of the Roman Agora, including the Tower of the Winds, the world’s first meteorological station. 

After a break for lunch (with plenty of food recommendations from your guide), your Athens Walking Tour reconvenes with skip-the-line tickets at the New Acropolis Museum. Inside, you’ll see a carefully-selected collection of the top archaeological treasures from Athens. The highlights are the Caryatids, enormous statues of women that once supported the entablature of the Erechtheion (the ones you saw on the actual temple are recreations) and the world-famous Parthenon Marbles. Your guide will discuss everything you see and bring the artefacts to life with their stories, anecdotes, and facts about the world of Ancient Greece. 

Leaving the museum, you’ll pass the Arch of Hadrian en route to the 2,300-year-old Panathenaic stadium. This is the only stadium on earth constructed entirely from marble, and the home of the first modern Olympics. You’ll enter with skip-the-line tickets and step onto the track where runners have been racing for more than a millennium. 

Your Athens Day Tour ends inside the stadium but we leave you with a special gift, a combo pass with five-day validity that gets you inside five of Athens’ most popular attractions, including Hadrian’s Library and the Temple of Olympian Zeus.
