As you are guided around the sites you’ll enjoy the unique experience and insights gained captivating stories. This isn’t your standard Athens mythology tour, it’s so much more!
Exploring the Acropolis
Your Greek mythology tour begins as you meet our guide. Their kid-friendly nature soon becomes apparent, and after introductions are made, they will lead you up the sacred Acropolis hill. In ancient Athens, the hill served as both a place of defence and a place of gathering for spiritual and recreational activities. Our guide will explain all about the myths and legends associated with the hill, such as how Poseidon and Athena had a competition to see who would become the patron deity of the city – something your little Percy Jackson fans will love!
Passing by the different theatres and the Odeon of Herodes Atticus, you will soon reach the top of this UNESCO World Heritage site. Our guide will happily answer any questions you have about the magnificent Parthenon. Make sure to take plenty of photos from up here, especially from the view point looking down over the city!
The Acropolis Museum
When the time at the Acropolis is over, your guide will lead you back down the hill and on toward the Acropolis Museum. This museum is rated as one of the best in the world, but it really needs a qualified guide such as ours in order to make the most out of the visit. Not only will they be able to explain in much greater detail the exhibits and artefacts on display, but they will also make it fun for the kids as well! Who said museums need to be boring?
During your time in the Acropolis Museum you will discover how the ancient Greek statues may not have been just plain white after all, and also find some intriguing brass-work. Again, there will be plenty of interactivity and quizzes to keep everyone’s energy and enthusiasm high throughout. You will come away from the tour buzzing with excitement, and ready to continue your Greek mythology tour of Greece.
