What to expect

The Acropolis Museum in Athens, Greece, is one of the city’s most important museums. The tour you can book on this page is a 1 hour 30 min tour in which you’ll have the chance to see the surviving treasures of the Acropolis finally reunited under the roof of the New Acropolis Museum.

THE TOUR

Your tour will be an in depth visit of the museum with a licensed tour guide. Together you will browse the religious artifacts of everyday life from ancient Greece, admire the statues from the archaic period, the Caryatids, and of course check out the Parthenon hall with the Metopes, the pediments and the frieze. Another major exhibit in the Museum of the Acropolis is the one that holds remains of the ancient Athenian temples that came to light during the on-going archaeological excavations under the ground floor of the museum.

After the guided tour you will be free to stay and continue exploring the Acropolis museum at your leisure.
