Acropolis segway tour
Visit the places where Theater, Arts and Democracy were born with a fun and easy Segway ride. Learn more about the city of gods and mythical heroes, as you will be visiting the Hill of the God of War, Mars, and the Temple of the God of Fire, Hephaestus, while you will be seeing the Stoa of Attalos, where the ancient philosophers of Athens used to give lectures and the Theaters of Herodes Atticus and Dionysus, where all the major tragedies and dramas of the past were first performed. And of course, don’t miss out on the opportunity to discover the streets of the picturesque neighbourhoods of Plaka and Monastiraki on the footsteps of the Acropolis, where the heart of Athens beats.
The tour includes visits to the Odeon of Herodes Atticus, the Hill of Mars next to the Acropolis Rock, the Hill of Pnyka with the ancient parliament, the area of Thisseion, the ancient Cemetery of Kerameikos, the Flea Market of Athens, Monastiraki Square, the old town of Plaka, the Ancient Agora and the Roman Market. Notes: Segway is an original high-tech transportation vehicle with zero emissions. Riding a Segway is similar to riding a bike – it’s intuitive but not inherent. Easy to use and operate, the two wheeled Segway has a capacity that can last up to approximately 35 Km and of course…it is fun to ride. Thanks to the unique movement of the Segway vehicles combined with experienced staff, we can offer you a high quality tour, with comfort, safety and fun. The tours accommodate small groups (up to max. 20 persons), accompanied by one guide. The size of the group may be larger upon request, depending on availability and given a prior reservation. For personalised tour suggestions (different foreign language, private tour or a tailor-made route) please contact us. During our tour we do not enter any archaeological sites, we have stops from the outside and our professional guides can pass along all the important information on the spot.
