I have gotten very good advice from many. I am not quite aure about this one though. Should I visit the Acropolis, National Archaelogical Museum, see Old Olympic Stadium and shop at the Plaka OR see Acropolis, Temple of Poseidon, and then Plaka? Want to get all I can from Athens. Thanks All IrisThe first is probably the best bet.
if we take a ship's tour of the Acropolis, we'll have a long walk uphill to the site; I was wondering if a private guide/driver can get us closer without that climb uphill? (DH has a medical problem which might make climbing VERY slow or impossible)We had a private tour and we parked in almost the same area. The walk isn't too strenuous, it's just hot. There is very limited shade, but once at the toll booths(?) they have a "disability elevator" to get you up to the "Parthenon level", for the sake of a better description. We had friends with us that used a wheel chair and they found that to be very helpful.
any recommendations for a private guide?
