In the Ancient Agora in Athens

Start your private tour in Athens with the best museum in the world (voted by UK journalists): the impressive new museum of Acropolis.

Enjoy & admire the wonders of the classical era, the statues, and the incredible art samples which at last found their home. Continuing your private Athens sightseeing afternoon tour we approach Plaka (the neighborhood of the Gods) the old city of Athens.

Walking on its paved narrow streets you get the feeling that you are traveling back in time. We will go by the Lysikrates monument, the church of St. Nikolaos Rangavas (11th Century), the Roman market before reaching and visit the Greek Agora along with the amazing temple of Hephaistos (5th Cent. B.C.).

The ancient agora, which extends over the North – West slopes of the Acropolis, was the heart of Ancient Athens from the late 6th century B.C. onwards. It was a place for political gatherings and debate, for elections, religious occasions and trading activities, theatrical performances, and athletic competitions.

Notes:

  • Due to certain restrictions in the visiting hours of the new Acropolis museum, the order of the program can be changed. Alternatively, you can visit the Acropolis or any other museum that would be open.
  • If in any case the Ancient Agora is closed the Panathenaic Stadium, where the first Olympic Games of modern times were held in 1896, will be visited instead.

Finally enjoy the spectacular view having refreshments on Lecabetus with its Orthodox St. George church, the highest hill in town, and remember Athens & our Athens tours for the rest of your life.

Highly recommended for cruise passengers, visiting Athens for hours to enjoy this spectacular private cruise shore excursion
