Never say never

Time heals all and eventually even the Athenians realized it was time to move on. A new generation, wealthy, strong, and resolute came to power in the middle of the 5th century BCE and decided to express their newfound confidence with a grand architectural program. The mastermind behind it was Pericles, the great Athenian statesman, who envisioned a series of temples on the Acropolis that would provide a large segment of the population with steady employment, while advertising to the Greek world the power and glory of Athens. He entrusted his vision to the greatest sculptor of his time, Phidias, who supervised a brilliant group of architects, stonemasons, and artists.

    Great tour. The audio guide was a great way to visit the acropolis and museum. It allows you go at your own pace and dodge the crowds as well. The customer service via email and WhatsApp is excellent. I would use this again.

  • S

    Just right. Extra information that was just right in length.

  • F

    This is a well planned tour. Loved the options of receiving a guide, but not tied to a group. You can jump the line to buy the tickets with this, but you cannot jump the line to enter. Also, go early before the cruises arrive or late in the day after they leave.

    Spectacular views. Seeing the Acropolis and the Parthenon in real life was amazing and the journey up was so pleasant. The views were beautiful and the museum was full of fascinating pieces.
