What to expect

On this tour, you will get to the heart of the ancient world and uncover fascinating stories from the Greek mythology. Learn about the true meaning of these timeless myths and the historical events that hide behind them! Start your tour 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 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 marvellous Parthenon.

It is here that the most famous ancient myths come to life, stories about Gods and Heroes, such as almighty Zeus, Athena, Goddess of Wisdom and protector of Athens, Poseidon, God of the Sea, Dionysus, God of Wine 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.

Things to look out for

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. You ‘ll hear more mythical stories about Theseus and the Minotaur, the jealous wife of Zeus, Hera and Aphrodite, Goddess of love and beauty. 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 kingdom of Hades, 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.
