Athens Walking Tours: Explore the area around Acropolis

Acropolis is the most famous and popular sight in Greece. You can’t visit Athens and not see the Acropolis, admire the remains of the ancient civilization while taking a look at the breathtaking view from the top of the Parthenon. And while you are there, take a stroll in the area around the Acropolis and explore the area and its hidden treasures.

First stop is The Ancient Agora. Of all Athens' ruins, the famed marketplace of Ancient Agora makes the most fitting start to your sightseeing. It stands testament to Athens' status as a cradle of Western civilization. Back in Socrates and Plato's day, it was the heart of public life, and among the site's extensive excavations you'll find temples, a concert hall, and long, colonnaded arcades.
