Description

Enjoy at your own pace the dazzling Acropolis Museum with a self-guided audio tour on your smartphone.

 

Travel back in time to experience the glory of Classical Athens with a brilliantly tied narrative. As you enter the museum, you’ll admire the impressive glass floor showcasing ruins of an ancient settlement buried below. Gear yourself up for all the exciting exhibits that will follow! In the first gallery, you’ll get an insider’s view of everyday life in ancient Athens. You’ll discover bygone wedding customs and ancient surgery practices as you gradually ascend to the next floor. There, the exhibits will guide you through the riveting journey of the city’s transition to democracy. Monsters, heroes, gods and iconic representations of the human body, will guide you through the evolution of ancient art.

 

The highlight of your visit will be the third floor, where you’ll marvel at the sculptural decoration of the Parthenon. Listen to the engrossing myths that you’ll see depicted on the metopes and pediments of the temple, such as the birth of goddess Athena and the battle of the Centaurs. Finally, your tour ends with the culminating age of Greek style, the classical period, and some of the most famed artworks of Ancient Athens, including the iconic Caryatids. These curvaceous maidens have witnessed the turbulent 2.500-year story of the Acropolis and are waiting to share it with you!
