This afternoon walking tour is a breezy way to take in two of Athens’ most stunning attractions.

You start with skip the line tickets into the New Acropolis Museum, which holds all the wonders that once adorned the Acropolis. Your expert guide will take you to see the most cherished works in the collection and help you understand what makes them so important. Highlights include the Caryatids, monumental statues of women that once supported the entablature of an ancient temple, and the world-famous Parthenon Marbles. With a maximum of 15 people in your group, you’ll be able to really engage with both the artifacts and your guide, making this a uniquely intimate encounter with ancient art. 

Leaving the museum, you’ll pass the Arch of Hadrian, one of Athen’s most iconic monuments, and the Temple of Olympian Zeus. Then it’s on to the Panathenaic Stadium. This arena has been hosting sporting events for 2,300 years, including the first modern Olympic Games. You’ll enter with skip the line tickets and actually walk on the track and field as you learn about the incredible, unbroken history of this marble masterpiece. Your tour ends inside the stadium so you can spend more time exploring.

With guided tours of two of Athens’ most coveted attractions and complimentary skip the line tickets to both, this is a relaxed and accessible way to experience the city’s ancient wonders.
