Walking in the ancient neighborhood of the Acropolis Museum

A new cycle of guiding tours through the archaeological excavation

The Acropolis Museum has launched a new cycle of presentations titled “Walking in the ancient neighborhood of the Acropolis Museum”.

Visitors, guided by the Museum’s archaeologists, will be given the opportunity to wander through the archaeological excavation which stretches underneath the Museum, like a giant exhibit. They will be able to walk on the ancient neighborhood’s streets, take a closer look at the houses with their courtyards and wells, enter the heart of the impressive mansions with the private baths, examine the workshops with the water reservoirs, take a magical stroll through time and the daily life of the people who lived in the shadow of the Acropolis’ rock for over 4,500 years.

The 45 min presentations will be in English every Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday, at 12.00 noon, and in Greek every Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday, at 1.00 p.m.

The participation is limited to 20 visitors per session, on a first-in first-served basis. In order to participate, only the general admission fee to the Museum is required (10€).

The archaeological excavation guide is available for purchase at the Museum Shops (in Greek).
