What you'll do

The Acropolis of Athens is the only place where we can witness the constant habitation of Attica region since 3.000 B.C. Acropolis is not just the symbol of Democracy, nor just an architectural marvel of all times. More importantly is the place of a constant communication with the Gods. A place of celebration of the human spirit against all odds of the uncertain faith of mankind. The cyclopean wall that surrounds Acropolis between the sanctuary of Brauronia and the southern wing of the Propylea is the gate between myths lost in time and the Athenian reality of the 5th century. Together we will visit the southern slope of the Acropolis and we will travel at a time when Gods walked along with humans. We will witness not only the architectural splendor of Parthenon, the Propylea and the temple of Athena Nike, but also we will discover the classical arts and birth of acting at the Theater of Dionysus and we will unfold the history of the place to nowadays. We will see the Philopappos Hill - responsible for the destruction of Parthenon and Pnyka - cradle of the Athenian Democracy to discuss about the history of Gods and Humans and witness the marvels that shaped the western culture. Then we will walk by the Athenian and the Roman agora and finally to Plaka for traditional organic food (Lunch is not included to the price).
