WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT
Get all your family involved in a tour exploring the magnificent “sacred Rock” of the Acropolis and the Ancient Pnyx, the functioning heart of the ancient metropolis.
Your guide will have plenty to tell you about the history and the legends of all the gods and heroes, such as almighty Zeus, Athena, Goddess of Wisdom, Poseidon, God of the Sea, Dionysus, God of Wine and Theater, and many more. Through timeless myths you will explore the Theater of Dionysus, drama’s first home; the resplendent Propylaea; the sacred Erechtheion; the Temple of Athena Nike and, of course, the magnificent Parthenon, perhaps the world’s most iconic building. All this will come alive in a way that keeps everyone’s attention and interest, kids and parents alike.
After you’ve discovered the secrets of the city’s formidable hill, you’ll take a short walk to reach ancient Pnyx, the birthplace of democracy, where all Athenians gathered to discuss all sorts of politics. There, you’ll hear more mythical stories about Theseus and the Minotaur, Zeus’ jealous wife, Hera and Aphrodite, Goddess of love and beauty.
This is where your guide will lead you in a group family activity that’s based on the gods and heroes you’ve been hearing about, allowing your kids (and you!) to interact imaginatively with your very special surroundings!
