Keep your camera ready and enjoy a short stop at the Panathinaiko Stadium, the cradle of the first Olympic Games that took place in 1896. Circle around Zappion, the Roman Temple of Olympian Zeus and Hadrian’s Arc and head for the new Acropolis museum. Main attractions such as votives, artifacts of every day life, statues from archaic period, Caryatids, and of course the Parthenon hall with the metopes, the pediments and the frieze will impress you.
Having explore the Acropolis Museum, continue to the UNESCO-listed Acropolis from the south slope so as to avoid the crowds and also to visit the Dionysus sanctuary and Dionysus Theatre built in the 5th century BC. Your licensed guide will give you a detailed explanation of the glorious monuments of the Acropolis such as, the Parthenon, the Erectheion, the Propylaia, the Nike Temple and the surrounding monuments such as the Odeon of Herodes Atticus, the Observatory as well as the Philopappos.
After your guided tour in Acropolis, pass by Mars and Pnyx Hill and enter to the impressive Ancient Agora which once was the political, social and commercial heart of ancient Athens. Marvel at the Attalos Gallery and the Temple of Hephaestus. This temple is smaller than the Parthenon, but in its beauty and perfection, he may well compete with the Parthenon.
