Guided tours and museum tickets in Greece

During your trip to Greece, you may want to purchase guided tours and museum tickets to ensure that you get the most out of your trip. These tours will offer you an insight into the history of the Acropolis and give you the opportunity to learn about the artifacts that are displayed at the museum. There are several different kinds of guided tours, including private tours, group tours, and a combination of the two. A self-guided tour is also an option, which allows you to visit the Acropolis and museum at your own pace.

You may also want to purchase guided tours and museum tickets that include a skip-the-line feature. This feature ensures that you will avoid the crowds and have priority access to the attraction. The main entrance to the Acropolis is often crowded, especially during peak seasons. This makes it necessary to arrive early to ensure that you are able to get through the lines.

Acropolis tours can be booked through various ticket providers, including GetYourGuide, Tiqets, and the Hellenic Ministry of Culture and Sports. These tour companies will allow you to book tickets online, which are then delivered to you. However, these tickets are not refundable. For this reason, you should only purchase them during specific seasons. If you will be staying in Athens for a longer period of time, it is worth purchasing a multi-site ticket.

These tickets also give you the chance to visit other Greek sites, including the Roman Temple of Olympian Zeus, the Ancient Agora, and the Numismatic Museum at Schlieman's House. Several guided tours will also allow you to visit the Greek Parliament and the Temple of Zeus. These tours are often led by locals, who will point out the main features of the Acropolis complex.
