Being in Greece, the cradle of the European civilization, you cannot but visit the Acropolis, this unique UNESCO Heritage monument!  Enter the Acropolis from the south slope so as to avoid the crowds and also to visit the Dionysus sanctuary and Dionysus Theatre built in the 5th century BC. On your way to the Acropolis, enjoy the marvellous view that unfolds before your eyes. Seize the opportunity to take the best pictures of the surrounding monuments, such as, the Philopappos hill monument and the Odeon of Herodes Atticus and the Observatory.

Magda my host was so well verse in the History of the Acropolis, The Museum, and Temple of Zeus. She was very engaging, enthusiastic to share the history of these beautiful sight. So patient and great listener. she took her time to answer every questions I had. The way Madga described or talks about the sights felt like I was part of History.

Our family of 4 had Harula as our private guide, and we spent an enjoyable 4 hrs learning and discussing mythology, Roman influence, how Athens became the capital of Greece, how its monarchy back then were actually Bavarians, etc. This tour is well worth the cost to maximize your time and education while at this amazing place. If you’re short on time, pick a tour where Zeus’s Temple is not included, but definitely get a guide for both the Acropolis and the museum to fully understand and appreciate these archaeological treasures.
