1st Day

Late afternoon - Under the shadow of the Parthenon walk tour
Discover the greatness of Athens using a gate to the past; crossing the gate from one end will lead you to the City of Theseus, Athens' founding father, and the era of the Athenian Democracy. Crossing it from the other end will lead you to the City of Hadrian, the Roman Emperor that reinstated Athens’ glory. Athens is most famous for her achievements in the Classical Era. But her history and her people’s history does not end there! Under the Roman Emperor Hadrian, Athens flourished once again! Explore a forgotten part of the city's past, a past even the locals cannot recollect…

The first 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! And who knows, maybe we will have unexpected encounters…

2nd Day

Morning - Ancient & Roman Agora: moving through time
Our adventure takes us to the Ancient Agora, the beating heart of ancient Athens. Here we will meet with and discover the ‘old Athens of Theseus’: Democracy, Justice, Philosophy, Commerce… all flourished in this place! Then, we will take the ancient road to the Roman Agora, the heart of Athens during the Roman period. There, we will meet the ‘new Athens of Hadrian’, the Roman Emperor, who was deified by the Athenians.

Late afternoon - Exarcheia: the beating heart of a changing Athens
In the afternoon, we set upon a journey of discovery and we need to create our own luck in order to get closer to the secret! On the way, we will explore Exarcheia, a neighborhood of Athens, which provides a fertile ground for exchanging ideas, the politicized youth and the modern-day philosophers. Athens’ most recent history will unravel through its street art.

3rd Day

Full day - The Oracle of Delphi: a journey to 'know thyself'
Our quest has reached a dead end. The last lead is too hard to follow! We will have to travel to the ’Navel of the World’ and seek guidance from the powerful Oracle... So, we embark on a journey to Delphi, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the most sacred site of ancient Greece!

People from all over the Mediterranean used to visit Delphi to consult the Oracle. From simple people to powerful kings, no man would make a decision before consulting Apollo! With the aid of 3D technology, the time-travel to ancient times is easier! We will have the chance to walk among extravagant and boastful votive offerings of great powers like Athens and Sparta and confront the fearsome riddles of the Sphinx! We need to be initiated into the old ways in order to ask for Apollo’s help. Hopefully, the god will find us worthy and Pythia will guide us to the answer we seek…

4th Day

Morning - Mysteries at the National Archaeological Museum
For our next adventure, we need to be undercover, since the stakes are high! We will explore one of the greatest archaeological museums in the world, housing some of the most important artifacts in history! From the Prehistoric times to the Classical Era and the Roman Period, the history of Greece will unravel before our eyes in a fun and interactive way. What secrets lie behind some of the museum’s artifacts? We need to keep our eyes and ears open…

Late afternoon - Essential Athens: seeking the seen & the unseen corners of the city
Our quest is drawing to an end. Uncovering the secret is within our reach! This afternoon, we will wander around the modern streets of a city that shines every hour of the day, while experiencing her senses! During our walk, we will explore the narrow streets, squares and arcades, where modern-day Athenians socialize, shop and do commerce. And hopefully… we will break the curse!
