Notes:

We always recommend to include a short (1/2 hour) or extended (1 hour) lunch break in your tour if it exceeds 4 hours.

Always keep in mind that the walking distance between the sites will take some time off your itinerary. Although the distances between the Athens’ sites are short, always allow some time (approx. 15 minutes) to walk from one site to another. You don’t want to rush yourselves during your tour and you should keep a relaxed walking pace in order to enjoy your surroundings. 

You should definitely put the Acropolis first in your itinerary, as it will be easier to climb the hill in the morning when your energy is high. During the high season (May-September) you should begin your tour at 8.00 AM, as the rock tends to get very crowded and the heat is strong. In the off-season, a good starting time would be 9.00 AM.

If you opt for an afternoon tour, it is better to leave the Acropolis for last, as fewer visitors will be on-site and the afternoon views as the sunsets from the hill are stunning.
