With a focus on Greek mythology told in a way that everyone will understand, appreciate and be enthusiastic about, our guide will point out places of interest such as ancient theatres and defensive walls on the way to the top of the Acropolis. Once you reach the peak, the magnificent Parthenon and other buildings which make up this UNESCO World Heritage site will be revealed. If your kids are Percy Jackson fans, they may know that this was the site of one of the battles from the books!

Our guide will explain about the history of the site, as well as the mythology attached to it. There’s plenty of time for photos, instagram, and videos, and you’ll enjoy filming not only the buildings, but the views onto the city of Athens as well. When it’s time to move on to the next stage of the day, our guide will lead the way back down the hill and towards the museum.

The Acropolis Museum

Considered to be one of the finest museums in the world, it houses exhibits and displays containing artefacts found at the Acropolis. If this doesn’t sound too exciting… Don’t worry! Our kid-friendly guides will help bring the museum to life through interactive games and activities. This is a museum that everyone will enjoy, and you will leave having found out even more about ancient Greek culture.

Lunch

After leaving the museum, it will be time for lunch. There are two choices – You can either eat lunch in the historic center of Athens, or take a drive for an hour or so along the Athens riviera and dine in a seaside taverna. The choice is yours! After lunch, there will be some time to relax and take a swim. In the colder months we recommend Lake Vouliagmeni which is a thermal lake. During the summer months, the sea is all yours to play in!

Sounion and the Temple of Poseidon

Experience a unique Percy Jackson tour to the Temple of Poseidon, and discover Greek mythology and legends along the way

After finishing swimming, the drive continues on to Cape Sounion and the Temple of Poseidon. This temple is over 2500 years old, and is thought to have been built on the site of an even older temple. There are many legends and myths attached to the temple and its position, with some people thinking that it forms part of a ‘Sacred Triangle’ of temples along with the Parthenon and another temple on the island of Aegina. As you listen to stories from Greek Mythology, the sun will slowly sink lower in the sky, which is a sign that you should find somewhere to watch the sunset. With the temple as a backdrop, it’s a truly magical experience, and one the entire family will enjoy. There will certainly be plenty to talk about on the way back to Athens, and you can look forward to your next day of adventures in Greece!
