Ce vei face

The Acropolis of Athens is the only place where we can witness the constant habitation of Attica region since 3.000 B.C. Acropolis is not just the symbol of Democracy, nor just an architectural marvel of all times. More importantly is the place of a constant communication with the Gods. A place of celebration of the human spirit against all odds of the uncertain faith of mankind.
The cyclopean wall that surrounds Acropolis between the sanctuary of Brauronia and the southern wing of the Propylea is the gate between myths lost in time and the Athenian reality of the 5th century.
Together we will visit the southern slope of the Acropolis and we will travel at a time when Gods walked along with humans. We will witness not only the architectural splendor of Parthenon, the Propylea and the temple of Athena Nike, but also we will discover the classical arts and birth of acting at the Theater of Dionysus and we will unfold the history of the place to nowadays.
We will see the Philopappos Hill - responsible for the destruction of Parthenon and Pnyka - cradle of the Athenian Democracy to discuss about the history of Gods and Humans and witness the marvels that shaped the western culture. Then we will walk by the Athenian and the Roman agora and finally to Plaka for traditional organic food (Lunch is not included to the price).
Other things to note
Children under 14 may attend with no fees for the experience with the supervision of their parents

Hello fellow Voyagers in Time! My name is Vassilis and I am a Historian and Archaeologist with degrees in History, Classical Archaeology, Marine Archaeology and European Civilization and Culture. For years I have worked and traveled extensively to Greece and abroad as an Archaeologist to archaeological excavations. I have also been tutoring Classical History, Arts, Philosophy and Literature.
My passion is Athens – my city and classical History and Archaeology both Greek and Roman. My aim is to connect the trail of the ancient world with the present day and bring to the light the hidden essence of the past.

Vassilis' knowledge is pretty much unrivalled - if you come to Athens and have the chance to have a tour with him, you should do it. No question. It's not often you get to do a tour of the Parthenon with a professor of archeology.

We had a wonderful day. First Vassilis is a highly knowledgeable and friendly person. He made us understand Greek history and culture like nobody else could. It was our first day in Athens and this was the perfect way to start our holiday. There was no rush to keep a schedule. He gave us the. time we needed to feel the place. We actually extended by a large margin the expected time of the tour.

An amazing tour which was incredibly interesting. There is nothing Vassillis doesn't know about about Athens, archeology and the acropolis. A really immersive experience with an excellent guide. Thank you Vassillis!

Friendly, knowledgeable, and an actual archaeologist, not just a tour guide. I arrived early to go through the museum together, which was excellent because I felt like I had a much better appreciation for what I was seeing once up on the acropolis. Vassilis also told me about other parts of Greek history that I was curious about, and was willing to answer my million questions while we sat in Plaka, which really is lovely. Great experience

Want to learn about Greek History with factfullness and evidence from an Expert in Greek history and super speciality in archeological Pottery from a Professor in Greek University? BOOK IT NOW!! Vasilis has ocean of knowledge a out history, culture, people, archeology. WARNING: Mind you this tour is not for you, if you are just interested to take just photograph and want to know superficial level of information about the monuments. I would recommend this tour only to those, who are REALLY interested in knowing in depth about the history of Athens and Greece. As the name suggest, it is aptly time travel from Pre historic to modern historic period. I would like to thank Vasilisis for his honest and authentic explanation of Greek history blending with archeology.
