Tour Details

Explore the 4,000 artifacts found on the famous Acropolis at the incredible new Acropolis Museum. Whether you've seen the Acropolis or not, this museum is a great way to take you through Ancient Greece's past.

After meeting your professional and English-speaking tour guide, they will help you purchase the museum entrance ticket best suited for you. The admission is not included in tour price. You will then begin your Acropolis Museum Tour. The first level of the museum is The Gallery of the Slopes of the Acropolis. Tour through the relics that were discovered on the slopes of the Acropolis and the everyday ancient objects used by the Athenians. Because the museum is built on the ruins of Roman and Byzantine Athens and the archaeological site of Makrygianni, this first level's floor is transparent, so you can view the excavations below. Just as the Acropolis ascends to high above the city, the first floor ascends, alluding to the Acropolis slope.

You will continue to the second floor and The Archaic Gallery. Explore the artifacts of the period of Athens when the city-state developed, when the aristocracy converted to tyranny and then to the first form of democracy. You will continue to the third floor and the famous Parthenon gallery. There you can observe a presentation about the Parthenon and its structure as well as an installment of the frieze of the Parthenon with the same dimensions as the inner chamber of the Parthenon. Nearly as significant as the artifacts is the remarkable architecture of the museum, which lets natural light flood the museum and offers spectacular panoramic views. Your tour of the Acropolis Museum will be unlike any Athens tour you take. It's a must-see for an unforgettable adventure through Athens's historic past.

Please Note: Due to various ticket offers, guests may have an entrance ticket or discount for a ticket to the museum from another source. Therefore, the admission to the museum is not included in the tour price, so that guests who may have a pre-purchased ticket may use them. Tickets are approximately 5 EUR per adult year-round. Tickets cost about 3 EUR per child under 18, and per student year-round. If they are citizens of EU countries, children under 18 and students receive free admission. Please be sure to bring the correct amount in cash. Credit cards cannot be accepted. A valid photo ID or passport is required to verify a child's age.
