The heart of Democracy

We begin with a visit of the Acropolis, the city's eternal symbol. Walking up to the Acropolis, we will have panoramic view of other buildings and monuments of the city. The monuments on the Acropolis were erected during the golden age, when the city was at its zenith;the temple of Nike, the Propylaea, the Erechtheion, with the famous porch of Maidens and the masterpiece, Parthenon.
But, the actual heart of the city was beating in the Agora, where we walk next. On our way, we see Mars Hill, where st. Paul gave his famous sermon.
In the Agora, among the ruins of public buildings we will see the temple of Hephaestus, the best preserved temple of the ancient times. We will also visit the museum and learn how the Athenians governed their city, exercised and protected their famous democracy. The tour ends with a short walk to the ruins of the Roman Agora, in the heart of Monastiraki flea market area, or Plaka, the old town, where you have plenty of options for a drink or a meal.

A Recent Review of this tour

Eugenia was a very informative and interesting guide for my husband and I and our 4 adult children. It was excruciatingly hot on the day of our tour, and she accommodated our needs and kept our interest. She made the history come alive! I highly recommend her!
