Accessibility note:

To go up to Acropolis as a wheelchair user you have to use the chairlift to the elevator that takes you to the site. Check the images below to see how it looks. The facility is not available during extreme weather conditions and strong winds.
The lift to the Acropolis is only allowed with manual wheelchairs. We will arrange a manual wheelchair, and can assist with the transfer from the wheelchair to the manual one.
The site of the Acropolis Hill is uneven and rocky, and therefore not always easy to maneuver around. We can arrange a pusher if preferred.

Go 2,500 years back in time to the heydays of the ancient Greeks. A time when a visit to the Acropolis was seen as a visit to the sanctuary of the Gods.

Your tour continues towards the Greek Parliament. And located below: the Unknown Soldier Monument. Placed in honor of the soldiers who gave their lives to defend the nation and her freedoms. Extra stops include the National Garden, and Erechtheion, the ancient temple on the north side of the Acropolis. Dedicated to Athena and Poseidon.
