Democracy. Olympic games. Toga parties. The Ancient Greeks provided the foundations for a lot of our modern day traditions. But they’re probably best-known for a very different kind of building work – the monuments, statues and artifacts they left behind. Chief among these are the Acropolis and Parthenon. And, if you can’t get to them under your own steam, this tour is the perfect way to see Athens’ prized possessions without putting in the leg work. You’ll be whisked by coach from the port to the Greek capital, where you’ll begin a tour of the new Acropolis Museum. Your knowledgeable guide will bring the ancient artifacts to life with stories and historical facts as you explore all three marble floors. You can see the acropolis from here so there’ll be plenty of time to take photographs. Want to explore? Plaka, the traditional part of town is right on the doorstep. And, if you’re looking for souvenirs to take home, Plaka is the ideal place to stock up.
The museum has a lift, café and toilets on site.
