Explore an ancient world, bewitching and beguiling, full of heroism, betrayal and resurrection as you visit the magnificent Acropolis archaeological site and the Acropolis Museum. Don’t leave it all to imagination! See Αθηνα as she once was in antiquity; halls of marble and gold adorned with exquisite statues and towering columns. Our virtual reality technology will place you in the very heart of the Golden Age.

Start your Athens Mythology Tour from the Temple of Olympian Zeus, the wondrous monument that was designed to be the largest temple in Greece. Your erudite and charismatic guide will be your personal storyteller as you learn about the adventurous birth and life tales of the father of 12 Olympian gods.

Ascend to the slopes of the Acropolis rock, finding yourself at the Theater of Dionysus, the place where ancient theater got glorified. Passing by the Asklepieion, listen to the healing secrets of Asclepius, the mythological figure who was punished by Zeus for his supernatural remedies. Your path to Acropolis will soon unfold before you; stand in awe at the Propylaea, the impressive marble gate of the hill, and learn the stories of Athena Nike, the victorious deity worshiped by the Athenians. Parthenon, the monument that encapsulates the principals and values of western civilisation is your next stop, where mythology was put under the service of the city of Athens. Continue by visiting the Erechtheion, the cult temple of Athena, and the actual place where according to ancient Athenians, the battle of Athena and Poseidon took place.

Acropolis Museum hosts some of the most impressive artefacts of the ancient Greek world, therefore your journey will take you there where your guide will show you statues and artefacts connected to some of the most loving and horrifying stories.
