Beginning in the pre-dawn hours, a two-day tour of the city of Athens will unveil a variety of sights. This Greek capital is one of the few places to witness life in a large city combined with the awe-inspiring remnants of ancient civilizations.
The ancient structures transport visitors back in time, as if the stories of old are rising up from the depths of history. The buildings appear as if they are made of golden pillars, like a fairytale landscape.
Stroll through the ancient city of Athens and take in the sights! You can witness the majestic temple of Olympian Zeus, the home of the parliament, and the iconic Acropolis with its renowned temples. As you wander along the Acropolis, you will be treated to a breathtaking view of the Agora, with the temple of Hephaestus. You can also explore the stony remains of the amphitheatres of herod Atticus, Dionysus, and the mazes of the plaka’s streets.
The Acropolis of old Greece is a stunning sight to see, an impressive memorial that has been around for eons. It is as if time has come to a halt when taking in its high columns and walls, a vestige of the olden days that continues to astound its spectators. The element that captures the attention most is the Parthenon, the temple that stands prominently on top of the Acropolis. Its pillars are arranged precisely at an angle, creating an opening into the temple which holds a figure of athena crafted from bone and gold.
The tragedies of sophocles, aeschylus, and euripides were first performed on this stage, making it the oldest theater in the world. Tourists are sure to be intrigued and educated by this marvel. Dating back to the 5th century bc, visitors can test the amazing acoustics of the amphitheater by having one person ascend the highest point and listen to what another says in the orchestra pit. A nighttime visit here will provide a truly immersive experience, with the possibility to witness authentic performances and concerts.
The famous temple of Hephaestus, renowned for its excellent preservation of ancient Greek architecture, is dedicated to Athena, the patron goddess of the Greek capital. According to legends, Athena was the protector of pottery. Inside the temple, visitors can admire ancient sculptures depicting the legendary accomplishments of hercules.
The renowned temple of Zeus, which was intended to be the grandest edifice of the ancient world, took a considerable amount of time to be completed. Its construction spanned over a period of six centuries, yet it was destroyed by an earthquake just 3 centuries after its erection. Visitors have the opportunity to observe the 14 remaining columns, which form one corner of the temple, the length of which is impressive — 96 meters. Initially, there were more than a hundred columns, yet now, most of them have been lost.
