This visit is a must in the middle of the day, nice and cool inside the museum!
It is the city’s pride! This new museum was inaugurated in June 2009. The building itself is a point of interest! Due to its simplicity, the much better the pieces stand out. Its exposition is about 4000 pieces. Therefore, a guided tour is the best way to see the museum. In this way, you will surely not miss out on the masterpieces!

Tour description

Visit together with the guide in chronological order the masterpieces of the museum. Attention is also focused on remarkable and special pieces that one without guidance would surely skip! The tour ends in the museum so you can enjoy and look around as long as you wish to. Or maybe you’re up for a good cup of coffee in the cafeteria with great views of the Acropolis where one can eat delicious indeed! Also don’t forget the bookstore with a wide variety of books for young and old.

Fantastic Tour of the Acropolis! Fotini was a fantastic tour guide with such impressive knowledge on the history of Athens and the Acropolis. We learned so much from her beautiful storytelling and appreciated her insight as to where to take the best photos! We would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a tour guide.

Great tour guide for the Acropolis We had a great tour of the Acropolis with Fotini as our guide. It was definitely worth getting there for 8 am to get ahead of the crowds. Fotini was friendly, well organised and practical, and very knowledgeable about the site. It definitely enhanced our experience to have her as our guide! We would strongly recommend her!

An experience you won't want to miss If you're planning a trip to Athens, I highly recommend booking a private guided tour of the Acropolis with Fotini! Her crisp, concise, and anecdotal details helped my family and I understand the rich history of the sites and made the tour so much more enjoyable. Her use of relevant stories and humor truly brought the magnificent structures to life. Despite the tour only lasting two hours, we learned so much during our time with Fotini. In fact, it was the highlight of our 4-day trip to Athens! She's a fantastic guide who is friendly, patient, and structured. Her passion for Greek history and philosophy is truly infectious. You won't regret booking a private tour with Fotini to learn more about the history and culture of Acropolis and Athens!

Amazing guide and an unforgettable experience! Fotini is an excellent tour guide! right from the start she was very accommodating of our group and very professional. She is also well educated about the site so she was able to answer all of our questions. She knew all the best spots to take memorable photos and even helped us find tour guides for the other Greek islands we visited (Santorini and Mykonos). She definitely made our time in Athens more enjoyable and we are so grateful for her knowledge and kindness.

Fantastic tour of Acropolis We had a wonderful tour of Acropolis with Fotini - very informative and engaging. Everything was easy - from booking, to finding the meeting place, to the visit, which she's timed perfectly to avoid cruise ship crowds. Although we visited Acropolis before, this was our first guided tour there and we got so much more out of it! Kids loved the story of how the myth of cyclops came about :)Fotini also gave us some tips for other places to visit and restaurant recommendations, including Strofi right next to Acropolis - such an amazing place.

Hele goede gids Tine Lepidou is een leuke gids. Haar uitleg was heel interessant en het werd goed gebracht. Het was helemaal niet saai. Bij sommige gidsen luister je niet meer, omdat het saai wordt , maar bij Tine bleef je luisteren. Dank je wel voor de rondleiding en de goeie tips.

An inspiring introduction to the Acropolis The Acropolis is a place that is best explored with a guide, and then Fotini is the best! She speaks calmly, knowledgeable, and encourages questions. She can convey her passion and pulls you completely into the story. We were sorry the tour was over. 😃 Fotini also gives extra tips, including which culinary addresses are definitely worth a visit.

Akropolis tour Onze rondleiding door de Akropolis was in 1 woord indrukwekkend. Wij hadden gekozen voor een gids en wat troffen wij het met Fotini Lepidou. Het was alsof we de leukste geschiedenisles kregen. We hebben 1,5 uur ademloos geluisterd en onze ogen uitgekeken. Nu 1 dag later zijn we nog bevangen door deze mooie ervaring. Een echte aanrader en als we 6 sterren hadden mogen geven dan hadden we dat gedaan!
