Earth proudly wears the Parthenon as the best gem upon her zone.”* 

Travel back in time as you wander around the emblematic Acropolis: Dramatically perched on a jagged clifftop –the so-called sacred rock of Athens– this UNESCO World Heritage site’s iconic ruins date back to as early as 510 BC. And they've got plenty of stories to tell –your expert tour guide will be happy to share the fascinating tales of the Temple of Athena Nike, the Caryatid Porch, and the magnificent Parthenon. You’ll also visit the Acropolis Museum –a modern architectural masterpiece that hosts 2.500-year-old treasures and even has an ancient neighbourhood underneath it. You’ll then enter the Plaka district, which is in fact, Europe’s oldest neighbourhood. Roam about the cobbled lanes strewn with neoclassical mansions, Bauhaus gems and Byzantine churches, and walk up to the Anafiotika quarter: Home to the Cycladic-style whitewashed houses that were built in the 19th-century by the workers who immigrated from the islands, it as pretty as it gets. With plenty of stops to take in the sights at your pace, with this bespoke walking tour you’ll moreover have ample opportunities to snap Instagram- worthy pictures that will dazzle fans and friends
