ATHENS – A new round of presentations entitled “Walking in the ancient neighbourhood of the Acropolis Museum” will start on Tuesday at the Acropolis Museum.

The visitors, guided by the Museum’s archaeologists, will have the opportunity to wander through the archaeological excavation which stretches underneath the Museum, like a giant exhibit. They will be able to walk on the ancient neighborhood’s streets, take a closer look at the houses with their courtyards and wells, enter the heart of the impressive mansions with the private baths, examine the workshops with the water reservoirs, take a magical stroll through time and the daily life of the people who lived in the shadow of the Acropolis’ rock for over 4,500 years.

The 45-minute tour will be given in English every Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday at 12:00 and in Greek the same days at 13:00.

Participation is limited, up to 20 visitors per session. For registration, please refer to the Information Desk at the Museum entrance on the same day. First-in first-served.

Price: Only the general admission fee to the Museum is required (10 euro).
