The impressive Temple of Zeus provides a great photo opportunity with the Acropolis in the background. It’s also MUCH less crowded than the Acropolis, and you can imagine the buildings that were in this location thousands of years ago.

On top of the Acropolis, your tour guide can assist disabled visitors over the slightly uneven terrain to view the Parthenon, the Erechthion Temple, and the Nike Temple. The spectacular views of the city below will conclude your memorable day in Athens!
