History

The Parthenon, home to Goddess Athena, is the most significant ancient temple in Greece. What we today call mythology, ancient Greeks perceived as their religion and the true story of their origins. Each fascinating mythical story depicts their effort to explain and grasp incomprehensible to them natural forces. We will uncover these beautiful stories that became the heart of their beliefs and try to get closer to the people that created them. At the same time, with the aid of 3D reconstruction and virtual reality, we will be able to see the buildings and the Acropolis Rock as they really were thousands of years ago!

“This tour was fantastic! Visiting Acropolis can be a great experience by itself, but having a wonderful guide with you presenting the history of the buildings and the stories of the people that created them takes it into another level!! We found ourselves listening to every single word of our guide! We heard so many fascinating stories from mythology that led to the creation of those marvellous buildings on the Acropolis (there are more to see than the Parthenon on the hill)! The tablet with the 3D repserantation really made a difference! I had NO idea that the Parthenon and everything were so colorful!! We could see ancient people walking next to us and were able to enter the interior of the Parthenon virtually. Highly recommended!”

2. What you can expect

The Parthenon is one of the most famous and recognisable buildings in the world and the oldest illusionistic building of all times. Designed as a testimony to Athenian greatness, it has been perceived as a focal point to the history of Western civilisation and a symbol of Democracy! It was then and still is considered to be the finest example of a Doric temple ever built!

 

The tour of the Acropolis and the Parthenon designed for you focuses less on archaeological and architectural details and more on the beliefs and lives of the people that left this marvellous legacy behind. Together, we will discover the cult of Athena, the Goddess that gave her name to the city, and how the beliefs of ancients Athenians were mirrored in their everyday life. Goddess Athena had many faces, each one having its root in a beautiful myth. We will discover those faces, trying to understand the society that conceived them and the real-life events hidden behind them.

 

We will learn about the birth of Athena from Zeus’ forehead and its symbolism. We will listen to legends and mythical stories, such as the contest between Athena and Poseidon about the naming of the city. We will see the holy tree of Athena next to Erechtheion and hear rattling stories of great heroes and giants.

 

Each building has a magnificent story to tell; we will explore these stories, trying to understand the people and the society that constructed them. With the aid of 3D virtual and reconstruction technology, we will have the chance to see the Acropolis Hill and its buildings as they really looked like thousands of years ago and walk through doors and rooms otherwise locked or lost forever!
