Put the best of science, art and philosophy together in one creation and you have the definitive monument of human civilization. UNESCO calls it the symbol of World Heritage. The world calls it the Athenian Acropolis! The history of the Acropolis of Athens is long, with great moments, when democracy, science, philosophy and art flourished leading to its creation. The Acropolis, and the Parthenon in particular, is the most characteristic monument of the ancient Greek civilization

Saturday July 22nd: Half Day Walking Tour of Athens

In the afternoon you will meet your guide in the lobby of your hotel and then you will begin your tour of Athens.

The Acropolis was first inhabited in the early Neolithic age around 6000 BC. Since then temples and dwellings were built, destroyed and reconstructed numerous times. During the Golden Age of Athens, in the 5th Century BC, most of the major temples were re-built under the leadership of Pericles, and great feats of architecture, such as the Parthenon, were created. As you make your way through the Propylaea -which was the fortified entrance to the Acropolis- you will discover a complex of temples which had been erected to glorify Athena, the city’s goddess and protector, and Zeus her father and king of the gods.
Built at the foot of the Acropolis, the museum is dedicated to the exhibition of artefacts found on the rock and the surrounding settlements. Here you will have the chance to view some of the finest sculptures which graced the life of Ancient Athens. As you enter the museum you will pass by the ‘Gallery of the Slopes of the Acropolis’ which is dedicated to artefacts found in the sanctuaries and houses which were located at the foot of the Acropolis, below the temples.

In the evening your tour will end at the Grande Bretagne.
