Get off at Acropolis metro station and walk half a block with the Acropolis museum to your left. Turn left on Dionysiou Areopagitou street. There you will see the Acropolis entrance to your right. Follow the path and you will come across the Theater of Dionysus – the theater used in classical times and the Odeon of Herodes Atticus. The path becomes steeper until you reach Propylaia. Upon ascending to the top of the rock, feel free to walk around and admire one of the most iconic attractions in the entire world.
From Acropolis, you should continue your walk towards the Ancient Agora. Further down towards the Thission metro station you will find Kerameikos, the ancient cemetery of Athens. Plaka and Thissio are ideal for a light snack or a hearty lunch. Next stop is Monastiraki, a central hub with the flea market located on Ifaistou Street. Plaka is the oldest neighborhood in Athens and one of the most picturesque ones.
You should not forget Syntagma, the main square and major meeting point in Athens. Walk up the stairs and you’ll get to admire the emblematic Greek Parliament building. The Changing of the Guards will fascinate you. It is in fact a ritual held on an hourly basis, with the Guards wearing traditional clothing and walking in perfect sync.
The National Garden is a serene oasis of green in the center of Athens. The Temple of Olympian Zeus and the Pillars of Zeus, Kallimarmaro and many other points of interest are waiting for you to discover!
