Description

Visit the must-see ancient landmarks of Athens, the Acropolis Hill, the Ancient Agora, & the Temple of Olympian Zeus, with our special combo and enjoy a full attraction experience with three e-tickets and audio tours on your phone.

With the first audio tour for the Ancient Agora, get ready for a crash course in the cultural and political life of the ancient Athenians. You will set out to explore the ruins of the world’s earliest democracy. Weaving through the Bouleutirion, the Tholos and the Monument of the Eponymous heroes, you will follow in the steps of the early citizens, while, later, in the Museum of the Agora, you will learn about the ingenious methods used by the Athenians to defend their democracy from any malign influence. Your tour will also lead you to Mars Hilland the Pnyx, from where you’ll enjoy picture-perfect vistas to the Acropolis and the city stretching below.

With the second audio tour for the Acropolis, you’ll explore first the south slopes of the Acropolis to discover the Theatre of Dionysus, believed to be the first theatre in the world, as well as the Asclepieion, and gain valuable insights about life in ancient Athens. Passing through the imposing Propylaea, you’ll continue your walk to discover the riveting stories of the Erechtheion and the old temple of Athena. Don’t miss the chance to take in the magnificent panorama from the Belvedere viewpoint and then head to explore the world-famous attraction of Athens, the stunning Parthenon.

The third audio tour will take you to the Temple of Olympian Zeus, where you will freshen up your Greek Mythology and listen to the story of the divine wrath that fell upon humankind on a day when Zeus felt kind of stormy! Weaving through the enormous pillars you will discover the turbulent 700-year history of the temple’s construction and its fate throughout the following centuries. Your tour ends at the balaneion, where you’ll admire the relics of an ancient bathhouse and learn about the lifestyle of the ancient Greeks!

  • C
    For this price you have really seen everything in Athens.

  • H
    Excellent value. Everything that we wanted to see was covered by these tickets. Listening to the stories on the audio was fun and interesting.

  • I
    No problem with tickets and an acceptable audio for the money spent. We first asked the live tour guides outside Acropolis. They were absurdly expensive (60 euros per person). Then I checked this app. We bought the tickets with audio guide. A local representative rang immediately. He explained what to do. He was very polite. We used our e-tickets for 5 different sights with no problem. The audio guide was useful. Still, considering you only remember a few points from each tour, I would definitely buy audio guides from this app/website for other cities and attractions.

  • J
    Great way to see many attractions and audio was a bit of fun. Instructions to download audio were step by step and easy to follow. It all happened easily.

  • K
    An amazing tour. This was a marathon tour of at least 3 tourist attractions in Athens: the Acropolis, the Ancient Agora and the Temple of Zeus. The combo ticket provided instant access to all of these attractions, but also several other gems including the Roman Agora and Hadrian’s library. These are spectacular monuments from a bygone age, and their majesty still remains. They make for impressive backdrops in photos. This is a must see for anyone who loves Ancient Greek history and mythology.

  • R
    Athens in your pocket! The entrance to all objectives was really easy.
