A Mindful Living Tour
Milton wrote of Athens as 'the eye of Greece, mother of arts and eloquence'.
Your visit today will begin with the most famous temple of the Ancient City -- the Parthenon, dedicated to Athena, the patron goddess of Athens. Walking up a winding path towards the Acropolis, you will pass through the Propylaea, and see the Erechtheum temple and the Porch of the Caryatids in the distance. Reinforced by the hand of man, the natural fortress of the Acropolis stands 230 feet above the city. You cannot help but be in awe of the view below.
On a panoramic drive through Athens, some of the highlights you will see include Constitution Square, the Royal Palace where the Evzones keep watch in their traditional costumes, the Temple of Zeus and the Olympic Stadium.
Please note: This tour involves a considerable amount of walking with an uphill climb to the Parthenon. The marble steps are slippery, especially when it rains. Wear comfortable, rubber-soled shoes. Shade is limited; please dress accordingly. Bring a hat and wear sunscreen. Expect dense crowding at the site. Use of an audio headset (included) will enhance your tour experience.
