Athens tour - 35,000 points

Following the orientation tour, participants will drive to the base of the Acropolis, where a series of steps invite them to ascend to the top of this sacred rock. Upon reaching the top they will pass through the Propylaea, the stately entrance to the magnificent structures inside, and will be greeted by a spectacular view of the city and the entire basin of Attica. Once inside, they will immediately see the Parthenon, by far the best known and most awe-inspiring of the structures on the Acropolis. Just north of the Parthenon is the Erechtheion, another well-recognized structure with its graceful porch of Caryatids. Following the visit guests will have some free time to take pictures etc. before meeting their guides at the exit of the site.

Located by the southeastern slope of the Acropolis hill, on the ancient road that led up to the “sacred rock” in classical times is set only 280 meters away from the Parthenon, and a mere 400 meters walking distance from it.Nearly 4,000 objects are exhibited over an area of 14,000 square meters. The collection of the New Acropolis Museum consists principally of sculptures, many of which originally decorated the monuments of the Acropolis. Designed by the famous architect Bernard Tschumi, the building is articulated in three layers, with a base, a middle zone, and a top. The base hovers over the excavation site on more than 100 slender concrete pillars, which have been individually positioned with the help of experts so as not to disturb the delicate remains. The area of Plaka is one of the most attractive districts of Athens.

Recently renovated, it has maintained its unique character and charm and differs from the touristy taverns in the area. Weather permitting, lunch is served also outdoors in the surrounding little streets. Very popular with locals and tourists alike, it offers excellent Greek food and friendly service.
