New Acropolis Museum, where ancient history and archaeology meets the modern vibes of a beaming European capital

Private Acropolis and New Acropolis Museum Tour

If you have a couple more hours to splurge while exploring the fascinating world of ancient Greece, I highly suggest that we incorporate a visit at the New Acropolis Museum after our stroll around the Rock of Acropolis. The New Museum stands as one of the most valuable architectural jewels of modern Athens housing classical antiquities in a refreshingly minimal environment. The Museum was rankedamong the top 10 museums of the world for 2017. Its exquisite selection of artefacts, its unique and interesting architectural design and every single detail that went into its creation has rightfully been recognized by all its visitors. It is an awe inspiring experience that you will carry with you for the rest of your life.

Extra Tip! If you worry that museums can be boring from our younger companions, but are eager to delve into Greek history, don’t hesitate to ask for the especially designed kid’s friendly version of this tour.
