Start your journey of exploration at the break of dawn to experience the full range of sights that the captivating city of Athens has to offer. As one of the few capitals in the world where modern life pauses to honor its ancient past, it`s easy to feel transported back in time. The golden columns of these historic monuments will take your breath away as if they emerged from a fairytale.
Take a leisurely stroll and explore the sights of Athens — from the temple of Olympian Zeus, to the parliament building and the ancient Acropolis. Here, you can appreciate the stunning views of the agora with the temple of hephaestus, marvel at the stone shells of the herod atticus, attica, and dionysus amphitheatres, and wander the winding streets of plaka.
The acropolis in ancient Greece is of colossal size and a distinguished landmark of the capital, and also a popular tourist destination. Here, time appears to stand still and be arrested in the faultless grace of ancient architectural designs. Viewers` eyes are drawn to the columns of the Parthenon, situated at specified angles in relation to one another. They form the basis of the entrance to the temple, in which the statue of athena is constructed out of ivory and gold.
The iconic stage of Sophocles`, Aeschylus` and Euripides` tragedies, the world`s oldest theatre, can be viewed by tourists with great interest and educational value. Built in the 5th century bc, the amphitheatre can be experienced first-hand with its excellent acoustics: one person can stand atop the highest point and still hear a person in the orchestra pit. Visiting in the evening allows for the most authentic performances and concerts. Make sure to take the time to explore this ancient structure and get the most out of your experience!
One of the most well-conserved ancient Greek edifices, this temple is devoted to Athena, the guardian spirit of the Greek state. Myths tell us that the goddess was the patron of pottery. Inside, tourists can view ancient statues that tell tales of the heroic deeds of Hercules.
The temple of Zeus, designed to be the grandest construction of antiquity, took over six centuries to complete. However, it was ultimately destroyed by an earthquake about 300 years after completion. Tourists today can see the 14 remaining columns as a representation of one corner of the temple, which was 96 meters long with originally over 100 columns. Only a few have survived until now.
In just two days, you can gain an understanding of the essential soul of Greece and take in the majestic and captivating monuments, architecture, and culture that still exist today. You may even feel as though you have stepped back in time and are living among the creations of our ancestors from hundreds of years ago. The stones of these ancient structures speak to a high level of development and culture that enriched the land for centuries.
