Wat je gaat doen

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).

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.

I had a great time with Vassilis, he really knows the history of Greece and I learned a lot about the country. I would definitely suggest the tour to anyone looking at learning more about Greece and trying some authentic Greek food.

My experience with Vassilis was exceptional! He is a professor, archeologist, historian, storyteller, philosopher and an all round warm, wonderful, generous human being. Spend a day with him and the magic of the Acropolis will have greater meaning and depth. Sit and talk with him, learn of history, gods and legend. He gave me tips for the best tavernas and islands for the rest of my trip. I have a new friend! With all my heart, thank you Vassilis. I came home full of smiles!

We had a fantastic tour of the Parthenon with Vassilis. He has such a wide ranging knowledge about history and we were fascinated by the turbulent history of Athens and the Parthenon and also by his own perspectives on these historical sites as an archaeologist.
