Greek mythology & history come alive in this private guided tour


All nature enthusiasts, young and older, are welcome on this guided walk. Ancient Greek history and mythology is based on stories from the natural world. During this exciting excursion in the parks surrounding the Acropolis rock we will go on the lookout for the 2 symbols of the goddess Athena: the little Owl (Athena noctua) and the Olive tree (Olea Europaea)! What about the story of the plant "Micromeria acropolitana"? It grows near the Acropolis rock and nowhere else in the world? Go find the symbols of Dionysus, hear about Anemone, Daphne, Narcissus and so much more on this 4-hour walking tour in the historical centre of Athens.

Itinerary

Apart from its great cultural significance Athens has a rich natural heritage as well! During this excursion you will learn about Greek mythology, since many of it originated and were related to nature. Expect to observe some rare and endemic species. What about "Micromeria acropolitana", the plant that grows near the Acropolis rock and nowhere else in the world? Spot the Little Owl (Athena noctua) resting in its holes in broad daylight!
