Tour description provided by Viator

Just when your cruise ship has docked in port of Athens you will be ready for your private shore excursion. Discover Athens' Ancient history on this fascinating private walking tour with your local guide. Venture inside the ancient Acropolis and admire just how this ancient monument towers above the city below. You'll also see such sites as the House of Parliament and the Zeus Temple as you soak up the local scene.

Syntagma Metro station, where your private tour begins contains many archaeological exhibits including ancient grave stones, an aqueduct from the 5th century BC, pottery, a 2,000-year old beehive and a mosaic from the 5th century AD.

You will then see the House of the Greek Parliament, former Palace. Walking through the city center you come to the Zappeion Hall, Zeus Temple and Hardian's Arch.

Continue strolling through the Plaka's paved streets before arriving at the Lysicrates Monument from the 4th century BC and the remnants of an old Christian Church. A ten-minute walk up the beautiful Dionysiou Areopagitou pedestrian walkway will bring you to the Acropolis, crowned by the Parthenon, with its spectacular views over the city below.

You will enjoy a profound and detailed explanation of the history of its monuments by your private knowledgeable licensed guides. On the way to the Acropolis you will also see the Dionysious Sanctuary, the Philopapos Hill, the Herodion Theatre and the Mars Hill.
