Description

Let fate pick the Greek god you will become for the day and set on a mythical adventure to discover the divine formula that will help you find your way back to the famed mountain of the gods, Olympus. Following a number of fun and engaging clues, you will wander through the compelling archaeological site of the Acropolis Hill and discover the myths surrounding its monuments in an effort to return to your rightful position of power!

With you skip-the-line entrance fees included in the price of the tour, all you have to do is follow your friendly guide up the sacred Acropolis rock, to marvel at the Theater of Dionysus, the world's first theater, and pass by the Asklepieion, the healing temple home of Asclepius who was punished by Zeus for his supernatural remedies. Your path to Acropolis will become even more fascinating as you try to find the answer to all the puzzles your guide presents to you; solve the riddles, unveil the myths that are hidden under every rock of your trail, and you will be led to success! The imposing marble gate of the hill, Propylaea, and the captivating stories of Athena Nike, the patron of Athens, are only some of the sites that will leave you enchanted. Of course, no Acropolis tour would be complete without the architectural miracle of the Parthenon, the monument that encapsulates the principals and values of western civilization and the Erechtheion, the cult temple of Athena, where according to legend, the battle between Athena and Poseidon took place.

The fun mythical adventure doesn't end on the Acropolis rock; next up in your mythological itinerary is the modern Acropolis Museum, home to some of the most impressive artifacts of the ancient Greek world. Your guide will show you statues, artifacts and every-day items connected to some of the most intriguing stories of ancient Greek life. Marvel at the beauty of the Caryatids, the beautiful maidens that supported the porch of the Erechtheion temple, and admire the wonderful metopes of the Parthenon, each one featuring a different mythological tale. By the end of your visit to the Acropolis Museum, you will have put together the blueprint that will lead you back to your divine home at the peak of the highest mountain in Greece. Long live the Greek gods!

A unique, enlightening and interactive experience that will help you grasp the magnitude and hidden symbolism of ancient Greek mythology, this tour will be the highlight of your Athens exploration.
