Take this in-app audio tour with a ticket to explore Acropolis and Athens, the city of ancient glory and the once cultural center of the world! This self-guided tour follows the pedestrian routes, and takes you though all the major attractions of the city. Prepare yourselves for the magnificent temples of the ancient gods, the Acropolis, the awe-inspiring Parthenon, and the remnants of the Roman years. The tour begins from the Hadrian's Library located near the train station of Monastiraki. There, you'll start to learn almost-3000-year-old history of Athens. As you venture past the Roman Agora, the stories of its "Golden Age" will unfold before your eyes. Having reached Acropolis, the milestone of your tour, you will be amazed by its grandeur and well-preserved architecture. One of the most sought-after destinations, this was a citadel and a home of the gods and kings that withstood fire, bombardment, vandalism, and earthquakes. Immerse yourself in the history of ancient Greece and find out how people lived during that time. Feel like an archaeologist examining the magnificent temples of the ancient gods, the awe-inspiring Parthenon, and the remnants of the Roman years. Next, the Theatre of Dionysus will plunge you into the atmosphere of ancient performances, and the Hadrian's Arch – into the Athens' glory days. Finally, enjoy the green oasis of the National Gardens commissioned by Queen Amalia, the wife of King Otto who ruled Greece for 30 years.
