Summary

Enjoy an informed and in-depth visit to the ancient capital of Athens, unimpeded by the usual crowds. In the winter, the city belongs to the locals, the queues and crowds for the Parthenon melt away, there is space to gaze at its museum treasures and the dusty paths through the Agora grow greenery once again. We’ll visit classic Athens ruins, with sites including the Parthenon, two world-class museums, and other fascinating archaeological sites. Wrap up warm and join us as we explore the city where democracy, architecture, classical art and literature both germinated and flourished. 

Tour highlights:

  • Ascend the Acropolis to the Parthenon, the universal symbol of the classical world and quintessential classical ruin
  • Explore two fabulous world class museums housing between them some of the greatest collections of antiquities in the world
  • Soak up the atmosphere of ancient Athens, exploring the quieter corners and monuments which have survived here for 2500 years
