Athens Mythology Tour – Acropolis Hill and Acropolis Museum
Are you looking for an afternoon of exploring the ancient world? Our Athens Mythology Tour is the perfect choice for you — a fun and educational trip to the Acropolis followed by an immersive stop at the Acropolis Museum.
During this 4-hour private tour, your family will learn about the mythology of ancient Greece, and the gods and heroes, what inspired the Acropolis, and the reasons why Athens was once one of the greatest cities in the world.
After arriving at the Acropolis, your family friendly guide will give you a creative tour of the site’s major monuments. You’ll hear the stories of the Parthenon, the Theater of Dionysus, the Temple of Athena Nike and the Temple of Erechtheion, as well as the Sanctuary of Asclepius.
While in the Acropolis, you’ll be given an iPad that’s been preloaded with an extra augmented reality program. This new ‘touring’ tool will help you visualize how the Acropolis looked in ancient times. You’ll be able to see a full 3D colored reconstruction of the 5th century BC statues, buildings, and ancient objects – it’s a truly incredible experience.

Afterwards, you’ll make your way down to the Acropolis Museum, where you’ll be able to discover even more about the history, mythology and culture of the ancient world.
The family friendly focus of our Athens Mythology Tour makes it a great alternative to standard guides that can often be a bit dull for the little ones. Instead, we offer fun and creative insight into Athenian society, letting kids imagine the rise and fall of ancient Athens.
We’ve created a perfectly crafted storyline, and your tour guide will be a professional storyteller specialized in bringing the ancient world to life.
