Acropolis Walking Tour: Meet your guide near Syntagma Square, and see the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and the Greek Parliament, where the Changing of the Guard ceremony takes place.

Next, stretch your legs around the National Gardens, and admire sights like Zappeion Congress Hall, Hadrian's Arch and the Temple of Olympian Zeus.

Continue through the paved streets of Plaka—the heart of Athens’ Old Town—and then follow the pedestrianized Dionyssiou Areopagitou walkway up to the UNESCO-listed Acropolis.

At the top, enter (own expense) this magnificent complex of sun-baked temples and take a guided tour of its star attractions. Stroll around the Temple of Athena Nike and the Propylaea, the Acropolis’ gateway, as you learn about their history; and marvel at the centerpiece: the Parthenon.

Having explored the main monuments, your tour finishes at the Acropolis. Say goodbye to your guide and enjoy leisure time before the start of your afternoon trip.

Afternoon Cape Sounion and Temple of Poseidon Trip: In the afternoon, reconvene with your coach and leave Athens behind as you venture south to Cape Sounion. Along the way, admire the picturesque beaches of the Saronic Gulf and hear stories of the Cape, the rocky promontory at the tip of the Attica peninsula, and its famous, ancient Temple of Poseidon.

On arrival, walk up to the temple, built high on cliffs overlooking the Aegean Sea. Take in the phenomenal sea views and if the weather is clear, cast your eyes over the island of Kea in the distance. Admire the Doric columns of the 5th-century BC temple, and discover the Greek myths that surround the building. Be sure, too, to check out the inscription carved by the English poet Lord Byron on one of the columns in the early 1800s. Afterward, return to Athens where your tour concludes at your hotel or the closest point to your accommodation.

Amazing Acropolis!

An outstanding experience! Be prepared for lots of walking and strenuous hiking on narrow walkways and slippery marble. Go anytime other than the summer as it becomes very crowded then. Carry water with you! It was remarkable to see the Acropolis lit up at night! It was a remarkable experience! I think they should sell t-shirts saying, “I climbed the Acropolis”!!!

We had an excellent walking tour of many beautiful places in Athens with Eleni. She kept a good pace that wasn't too fast and kept us informed of the sights as we went along. There was ample time for photo taking along the way. At the Acropolis we were given the tour and the history before being given time to ourselves to further explore and take pictures. The afternoon trip to Cape Sounion was very scenic and the Temple of Poseidon was breathtaking to behold. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour.
