Description

Start your tour at the magnificent Temple of Olympian Zeus which was, and still is, the unofficial entry point to the city of Athens. This temple is a telling symbol of the legend about Deucalion and Pyrrha, the Greek equivalent of Noah – but it is also something even more important: it’s the mythological start of the city of Athens.

From there, your English-speaking guide will take you all the way to the Theater of Dionysus and the Acropolis to visit the Temple of Athena Nike, the Temple of Erechtheion, the Propylaia and of course, the marvelous Parthenon. It is here that the most famous ancient myths come to life: the birth of Dionysus, God of Wine, and his adventures around the world, almighty Zeus and the birth of Goddess Athena, the battle of Poseidon and Athena over the city of Athens and many more. But what’s even more intriguing is that you’ll also find out what truths hide behind these myths and why the Ancient Greeks created them.

Your tour back in time continues to the Ancient Agora. It is here that democracy was born and where great philosophers such as Socrates spoke about global truths. Here you’ll have a rare chance to see the Hephaisteion, the most perfectly preserved of Greece’s temples and one shared between Athena and the God of the forge, Hephaestus.

This walk will also help you figure out how this city was created and how it rose to become one of the greatest cities of the old world. In the Ancient Cemetery of Keramikos the myths of life and death, Demetra, Persephonis and Hades, will finally help you understand how Athens managed to create such a reputation and such monuments that are still immortal and legendary. Just like their Gods.
