Know More about this tour

Kick-off your ancient Athens mythology experience with a visit at the magnificent Temple of Olympian Zeus which was, and still is, the unofficial entry point to Athens and the mythological start of this glorious city.

From there, your top-rated guide will take you all the way to the Theater of Dionysus and then the magnificent Acropolis. In Acropolis you will visit the Temple of Athena Nike, the Temple of Erechtheion, the Propylaia and of course, the marvelous Parthenon.

Here, the most famous ancient myths come to life, stories concerning beings such as almighty Zeus; his daughter Athena, goddess of wisdom and protector of Athens;Poseidon, god of the sea; and Dionysus, god of wine. But whats even more intriguing is that youll also find out what truths hide behind these myths and why the Ancient Greeks created them.

Your ancient Athens experience continues to the Ancient Agora. It is here that democracy was born and where great philosophers such as Socrates spoke about global truths. But here you'll also learn about Theseus and the Minotaur; about Hera, the ever-jealous wife of Zeus; and about Aphrodite, goddess of love and beauty.

Our next stop is the Ancient Cemetery of Keramikos, where the myths of life and death, will finally help you understand how Athens managed to create such a reputation and such monuments that are still immortal and legendary.

After a short break during which youll have some free time for a quick lunch at a spot of your own choice, you will reach one of the world's most important museums, the Acropolis Museum, filled with a vast collection of beautiful objects from thousands of years ago and world-famous for its stunning Parthenon Marbles.

As no ancient Athens experience is complete without meeting the people of Athens, you will be introduced to two Athenians from the citys Golden Age, whose everyday lives you'll explore as you move through the exhibits. Their personal stories are hidden in the things they left behind, the artifacts that we encounter at the museum today. Your expert guide will lead the way connecting the past to the present through a series of fun games and activities. As you take part in the activities, you'll learn all about Ancient Greek history and culture.

By the time you finish this museum adventure, you will know what made this ancient city so special, and you'll understand, too, the modern relevance of its crowning glory, the Acropolis.
