  • Acropolis
    The Athens sightseeing tour starts by visiting the imposing naturally fortified hill of the Acropolis. The tour includes a walk that travels the visitors through ancient times in one of the oldest cities in the world, which was considered as the cradle of the western civilization, birthplace of the philosophy, the theatre and the democracy. By passing the monumental gate of Propylaea you’ll see the Temple of Athena Nike, the Erechteion and the Parthenon. You will enjoy the panoramic view of Athens and Piraeus port. At the foot of the Acropolis hill you’ll see the ancient theater of Dionysos (the oldest theatre of the world), the Odeon of Herodus Atticus and the Areopagus (Mars Hill).
  • Propylaea
    The first propylon, or gate, was constructed in the age of Peisistratos (mid-sixth century BC) after the Acropolis had become a sanctuary dedicated to Athena. A new propylon, built-in 510-480 BC, was destroyed by the Persians in 480 BC and repaired after the end of the Persian Wars, during the fortification of the Acropolis by Themistokles and Kimon. The monumental Propylaia admired by modern visitors was part of the great Periklean building program. They were erected in 437-432 BC, after the completion of the Parthenon, by architect Mnesikles.
  • The Temple of Athena Nike, built entirely of Pentelic marble between 427 and 421 BC, stands on a 6-meter high stone platform extending from the southwest corner of the Acropolis. The temple was the first Ionic structure to be built on the Acropolis. It is dedicated to Nike, a form of Athena, who is believed to be the goddess of Victory in Greek mythology. (pass by)
  • Parthenon
    The Parthenon is a temple dedicated by the Athenians to Goddess Athena Parthenos(Vergin), the patron of their city, is the most magnificent creation of Athenian democracy at the height of its power. It is also the finest monument on the Acropolis in terms of both conception and execution. Built between 447 and 438 BC.
  • The Erechtheion is a temple on the top of the Acropolis. It was designed by the architect Mnesikles and was a complex building constructed in the last twenty years of the 5th century BC. It replaced the ancient Temple of Athena Polias, part of which had been destroyed by the Persians sixty years earlier. The new temple was divided into two chambers: an eastern room dedicated to Athena, which held the goddess’ wooden cult statue; and a lower western room that accommodated shrines of Poseidon-Erechtheus, Hephaistos, and Boutes, the brother of Erechtheus.
  • Teatro Di Dioniso
    The theatre of Dionysus is the oldest theater in the world, built in the middle of the 6th century BC during the reign of the tyrant Pisistratus. Originally, it was part of Dionysus Eleuthereus’ sanctuary. It was directly connected with the myths and cult of the god. The attraction is located on the southern side of the Acropolis in Athens.

The entire monument is made of Pentelic marble, from Mt. Pentelikon, 18.2 km northeast of the arch. Pentelic marble was used for the Parthenon.
  • Panathenaic Stadium
    The Panathenaic stadium provides you with a nice opportunity to learn how an ancient stadium of the 4th century BC was. The stadium doesn't look like an ordinary archaeological site. There are no ruins. This stadium was not rebuilt during modern times. However, in 1896, during the first modern Olympic Games, there were works for the renovation of its marble covering. The work was financed by Georgios Averof. The present-day shape of the stadium is the same as the ancient stadium of the 4th century BC, was.
