Tour Highlights
Acropolis – New Acropolis Museum

Duration
Extended Half Day [H/D], 5 hrs approx.

Description
A short drive will take you to Athens and to the Acropolis, which has been dominating the scene of this historical city for over 25 centuries now. After the uphill walk to the Acropolis you will see the Propylaia, Temple of Athena Nike, the Erechtheion and the Parthenon. Free time will be given during the visit to enjoy the extraordinary view all over Athens.
Your tour continues with a walk through a lovely pedestrian zone down to the foot of the Acropolis’ hill, where the New Acropolis Museum is situated and which doors opened to the public only in June 2009. Findings and discoveries of the ancient world are exposed in this magnificent piece of art this museum constitutes itself.
The impressing building of the New Acropolis Museum, consisting of glass, concrete and steel, has been designed by the Swiss American architect Bernard Tschumi. Recently excavated, the ancient market place of Athens is covered only by a glass floor and leads its visitors into the museum, where one is expected by its treasures dating back over 2500 years.
The first floor presents sculptures, vases and other valuables which are freely exposed and create an impression and atmosphere like participating on the ancient past. The extraordinary top floor exhibits the remained sculptures of the Parthenon which had been transferred years ago to the British Museum.
After visiting the bespoken New Acropolis Museum return back to Piraeus port and the ship.
