Explore the monuments of the Acropolis on a small group afternoon walking tour with a French-speaking licensed tour guide and archaeologist. Visit the Parthenon, and learn the fascinating history of the most important classical site in the western world. Join a licensed archaeologist guide, and admire an astonishing collection of sculptures that tell more than 2,500 years of history, from the 1st theater of human civilization at the Theater of Dionysus, to the Healing Temple of Asclepius, and Odeon of Herodes Atticus. See the Temple of Athena Nike (Temple of Wingless Victory), and the gateway to the Propylaeum. Go to the remains of the Porch of the Caryatids at the Erechtheum.

Tour fantastique. Visiter l'Acropole l'après-midi est une idée géniale car vous évitez les foules le matin et la chaleur. Est plus frais et léger est idéal pour prendre des photos. Notre guide parlait parfaitement le français et nous avons beaucoup appris. Sans un guide aurait été impossible de réaliser la gloire de l'Acropole. Beau, éducatif et confortable 2 heures.

Très bon accueil, point de RdV facile à trouver. Dimitra nous à fait parcourir de manière animée, détaillée et bien ponctuée les différents monuments de l'acropole. ce qui était appréciable car peu d'explications sur le site. petits conseils pour organiser votre visite d'Athènes en bonus ;) Nous étions un groupe de 11, la visite dure 1h30 ce qui est suffisent puis fin devant le panthéon pour avoir quartier libre jusqu'à la fermeture à 20h. visite intéressante, je ne regrette pas d'avoir trouvé cette activité.

Permet de découvrir la ville d'Athènes autrement (coucher de soleil et de nuit), sans effort (e bike), après la chaleur de la journée (à 20h !) et des endroits magnifiques que nous n'aurions jamais vus sans cette ballade. Merci à notre guide pour ces explications avisés et sa bonne humeur.
