WALKING TOUR OF ATHENS : IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF THE GREAT PHILOSOPHERS

Ciottolato grecoDepartures: All year round

Duration: 1/2 day – Private Tour


This private walking tour takes you back to the age of Socrates, Pericles, Themistocles, Aristides, Kimon and so many other important figures who shaped Greek Philosophy.

On our way to the south-eastern slope of the Acropolis, we see the Theatre of Dionysos, the Conservatory of Herod of Attica and stand on the foot of the Filopappos Hill where Socrates is believed to have been imprisoned. Head towards the Hill of Pnyka, where meetings of the assembly of the city were held.

As the temple of Hephaestus gradually appears before us, we continue to the Ancient Agora, closely connected to the array of public and political life in ancient Athens as well as to education and philosophy.

Our expedition would not be complete without a visit to the museum that is housed in the Attalos Colonade, where we are see unique exhibits and objects from the everyday life of ancient Athenians.
