Overview
Discover the best of Athens, the surroundings of the Acropolis and the beautiful Plaka area, with an immersive audio tour & a detailed map of the route. Your tour begins in Plaka, where you will enjoy a leisurely stroll covering the highlights of this most nostalgic neighborhood, including the Tower of the Winds & the Anafiotika, a small piece of Cycladic heaven at the heart of Athens. Then, you will walk around the cobbled paths that surround the Acropolis hill to discover some fascinating stories from its rich past and end your audio tour outside the stunning Acropolis Museum. This is an unmissable opportunity to enjoy a pleasant stroll around the historical area of the Acropolis hill and get introduced to its highlights and some of its most unexpected secrets. The tour doesn't cover the Acropolis site and the Museum, but will provide you a comprehensive overview should you wish to explore them on your own! * Tickets to the archaeological site and the museum are not included.
