Tours and Tickets

The area
Neighborhood: Plaka
Due to its proximity to the Acropolis, Plaka remains the area where the majority of foreign visitors stay and play. Its attractive features include small squares, some notable museums and the beautiful Mitropolis cathedral, as well as a host of places to stay, eat and drink. Its pedestrian zones make it a pleasant place to escape from the city’s notorious traffic. Adrianou and Kidathineon Streets contain a number of souvenir shops, offering classier items than you will find in the Flea Market. The most rewarding section to explore is the upper reaches towards the Acropolis itself, where many old stone houses with tiled roofs have survived. Up here you can find leafier corners and the odd quaint taverna with unobstructed views of the ancient rock.
How to get there

Took my daughters to see Downton Abbey and we couldn’t quite believe that to the right of us was the Acropolis at night. Tickets only 6 Euro on a Tuesday night

Please stop smoking
Sep 2019
The outdoor experience was ruined as outdoors in Greece means everyone smokes - relentlessly! It was frankly quite gross and spoiled the experience. Smokers will love it, others will not.

Cinema under the Acropolis!
Aug 2019 • Couples
Lovely alternative way to spend an evening in Athens. I love cinema and coming from Scotland I never take advantage of open air cinemas since it’s so cold. We decided to see Quentin Tarantino‘ new film ‘Once upon a time in Hollywood’ at Cine Paris. It was in English with Greek subtitles, the view was stunning, sitting so close to the lit up Acropolis. Clear, warm night with a bar for food and drink.

I would recommend buying tickets a 2-3 hours before the film to make sure you get a seat. The box office was open at 7pm when we walked past. Only issue was that people smoke a lot, you may spend the duration passively smoking but it’s to be expected so can’t complain really.

One of the best evenings.

Unique experience a true hidden treasure

Great place to watch a movie while being next to the Parthenon. I would recommend going 1 hour prior to the movie so that you can select a good spot. You can also have alcohol while watching the movie. The only downside is the fact that people can smoke so if you are unfortunate enough and you have one smoker next to you, you will bot be able to endulge the experience so much.

Perfect Athens experience
Aug 2019 • Solo
Having an hotel close by I saw that between the 16 until 18 they were playing Tarantino so I could not resist. Then I went. But beware by the tickets one day in advance or be there 1.30 minutes before otherwise, you’ll not find any.
It is an experience not to be missed!

Cine Paris - A beautiful cinematic experience. This rooftop cinema is exactly as advertised. Beautiful views to the left of the Acropolis, cheap food a drink and no issues with noise. Our movie was French but had both Greek and English subtitles. Highly recommend.

Must do

Incredible views of the sun setting while watching the movie.

We watched the fall of the American empire. It was a French movie but they had subtitles in English.

We sat at the top which I think is the best seats. You can hear the movie fine, the view of the sunset and Acropolis is good.

They sell food and drink which I thought it was reasonably priced.

I read it was busy but we turned up around 820ish for a the 845 session and we were fine. We didn't have to stand in a line, we got good seats and there werent many people. Gradually people came in but again, there was no line. Once movie finished there was heaps of people waiting for the later session. I think that one maybe the popular one. Personally I would go to the sunset one after having dinner.

Magical rooftop setting
Jul 2019 • Family
Definitely one of the (many) highlights of our trip to Athens. The unassuming box office on a busy side street in Plaka belied the magical rooftop setting with a great view of the beautifully illuminated Acropolis above.

Drinks and snacks were available from a bar at the back.

The film we saw was French, with English subtitles, not one that we would usually have chosen to see, but great all the same.

A wonderful experience and a great way to celebrate the cooler evenings.

What a view!
Jul 2019 • Family
We visited Cine Paris on our last night in Athens and it was fabulous! The view is absolutely amazing and the whole experience of seeing a movie under the Acropolis is just magic. My suggestion would be to eat before attending as all they really have to offer is popcorn, nuts, chocolate, slices of pizza and hot dogs. The bar selection however is good with lots of choice available.

A unique experience for both Athenians and visitors of the city. A must visit place for summer and early autumn in Athens
