1st Day

Morning - Acropolis & Acropolis Museum: the faces of the Goddess
Visit the sacred Rock of Acropolis and admire the oldest illusionistic building of all times, the Parthenon Temple! We will explore the Parthenon and the Acropolis hill under a new light. With the aid of 3D reconstruction and virtual reality, we will be able to see the buildings and the Hill as they really were thousands of years ago! Our morning will end with a creative and interactive tour of the Acropolis Museum, an architectural jewel that reflects Acropolis itself!

Late afternoon - Under the shadow of the Parthenon walk tour
In the afternoon, we will walk under the Parthenon's shadow, like wanderers of ancient times, enchanted by the sacred Rock of Acropolis and one of the oldest neighborhoods in Europe! We will share drinks, stories and smiles in the little alleys of a district full of local vibes.

2nd Day

Morning - Hill of the Nymphs: a day in ancient Athens
We will start our day as an ancient Athenian family on the sacred site of Pnyka overlooking the Parthenon. First, a specialist in ancient rituals will guide us into a unique journey of meditation following the very same technique our ancestors used to practice. Then, we will offer our gratitude to Mother Nature by learning about and practicing the very important ancient custom of Offerings. Finally, we will weave our life goals and wishes through a game that will make them come true!

Late afternoon - Sounio: battle of the Gods
Athena - Poseidon. Two great ancient Gods, a never-ending contest. The stage is set in one of the most scenic views in Greece: Cape Sounion. Poseidon’s chariot is running on the golden waves, colored by the sublime setting of the sun at the edge of the Aegean Sea. The Gods of Olympus standing still, waiting patiently for one thing: to see, where you will cast your vote!

3rd Day

Full day - The Oracle of Delphi: a journey to 'know thyself'
We embark on a journey of self-reflection and a deeper understanding of ourselves to Delphi, the ’Navel of the World’. We will visit the most sacred site of Ancient Greece, where people traveled from all over the Mediterranean to consult the Oracle of Apollo. With the aid of 3D technology, the time travel back to ancient times is easier! We will have the chance to walk amongst extravagant and boastful votive offerings of great powers like Athens and Sparta and confront the fearsome riddles of the Sphinx! Prepare for initiation into the old ways…

Athena was also known as the patroness of weaving. Her skill with the loom was rivaled only by Arachne. Leaving Delphi, we will visit the Folklore Museum of the picturesque village of Arachova, to seek the roots of the art of weaving. There, we will have the chance to see an exact replica of an ancient loom; like the one Penelope used in Homer's Odyssey to weave Laerte's burial shroud in an effort to delay her suitors. We will witness the evolution of the art of weaving and admire many traditional pieces of woven art.
