Believed to be an active neighborhood from around 3000 BC to 1100 AD, the space consists of sea streets, houses, and shops. Athens Acropolis & Parthenon At the Athenian temple complex, stop by the ruins of legendary structures like the Propylaea and the entrance to the ancient temple of Parthenon.

As you start walking up the hill with your group (22 people or less), you'll see historical monuments of the area. The ancient citadel contains several temples dedicated to Greek gods. You'll visit the Erechtheion, the Propylaea, the Temple of Athena Nike, and the Pedestal of Agrippa. Your English-speaking guide will regale intriguing stories about these white marble structures.
