This walk will also include a visit to the stunning new Athens Acropolis Museum, designed by Bernard Tschumi and opened in 2009. Designed to echo the topography of the actual Acropolis, the museum is an illuminating companion to the ruins of the original site. We'll look at some of the museum’s treasures, including the wonderful re-creation of the frieze of the Parthenon. By the end of the tour, we'll emerge from the Acropolis with a deeper understanding of Athenian society and the central position of this monument within the city.
