- Parthenon (17 minutes): The Parthenon is the perfect embodiment of the aesthetics and ideals of classical Athens. Listen to the stories about the great minds who envisioned and constructed the temple and learn about the optical illusions that brilliantly fiddle with the viewer’s perception.
- Temple of Zeus (8 minutes): Set on a riotous journey back in time to learn about the turbulent 700-year history of the construction of the temple and its fate throughout the centuries. This is also a perfect chance to freshen up your Greek Mythology and listen to the story of the Great Deluge, the divine wrath that fell upon humankind on a day when Zeus felt kind of stormy!
- Temple of Apollo Delphinios (8 minutes): Observing the ruins of the temple of Apollo Delphinios, learn how the god Apollo earned his nickname and became associated with dolphins in Greek mythology. The site is also home to many brutal stories, including a gory bloodbath upon which the city was founded by Theseus, one of the city’s legendary kings.
- Roman Bathhouse ( 7 minutes): In close proximity to Olympieion, you will end your virtual tour in front of the balaneion to discover the relics of an ancient bathhouse. You will learn about the rejuvenating benefits of public baths and how the Greeks and the Romans ritualized the act of bathing, turning it into an integral part of their everyday life.
- Panathenaic Way (8 minutes): The tour actually begins at the Panathenaic Way, the most notable and famous Athenian road of ancient times, used for leisure, travel, and religious ceremonies. It owes its name to the procession held during the Great Panathenaia festival celebrated every year in order to commemorate the birth of Goddess Athena and the battle between her and God Poseidon.
- Temple of Hephaestus (12 minutes): The Temple of Hephaestus or Hephaisteion is the best preserved of all Greek Doric temples. Even though the temple is dedicated to the cult of Hephaestus, the deeds of Theseus, the legendary king of Athens, that ornate the building gave rise to the name of the temple “Thiseion” that gave in its turn the appellation to an entire neighborhood which today is very popular and full of restaurants, cafes, and bars.
- Stoa of Attalos (40 minutes): The so-called Stoa of Attalos is the most impressive Hellenistic building that never ceased its function and houses today the Museum of the Ancient Agora. During 1952-56 the American School of Classical Studies restored the Stoa that finally housed the antiquities found in the Ancient Agora. The exhibition is organized by chronological units, from the Neolithic to Roman and Byzantine periods, giving you the chance to make a journey through time and imagine the Ancient Agora from its very beginning.
- The Sacred Gate: (6 mins): Water is the source of life and Athenians should think and do all the necessary to have water. The Sacred Gate, one of the two gates constructed in Kerameikos, was the perfect solution. Listen to our stories and you will find out how it got its name and, of course, why it was the best solution against the drought.
- Tomb of Lacedaemonians (7 mins): Believe it or not, Lacedaemonians, forever enemies of Athens, have their own tomb in the Athenian necropolis which in fact is one of the best-preserved monuments in the area of the public cemetery. The tomb is the reminiscence of a dark period in the history of Athens. For eight months thirty tyrants ruled the city, terrorizing the citizens. When an Athenian stood against them, Spartan troops came to support the tyranny. Why did Athenians choose to erect a tomb for their enemies? The answer lies in our stories.
- Grave Stele of Dexileos (6 mins): Even though Dexileos was only 20 years old when he died, he became eternal thanks to his funeral monument. He died defending his city during the Corinthian War. He is gone but he was never forgotten. Listen to our stories and find out all the details about the young brave man and the meaning of the scene presented on the grave stele.
Athens City Tour
- Syntagma Square (10 mins): The most popular and crowded square in Greece and one of the landmarks of Athens is Syntagma Square. Designed and constructed in the late 1840s, the Syntagma (translated into English constitution) square is a synonym for the contemporary history of Greece. How does the square relate its history with the one of Athens and of the citizens’ rights? The answer lies in our tour.

Athens Central Market or Varvakeios as it is commonly known is one of the places where you can feel the vibes of the city and until today remains the largest metal construction in Athens. Owing its name to Ioannis Varvakis, who was the first entrepreneur to export caviar from Russia to Europe in waterproof timber boxes, Varvakeios has a long and interesting history.
- Sanctuary of Pan (10 mins): Athens is a city forged by myths and legends. The Sanctuary of Pan, hidden in Apostolou Pavlou Street, narrates the myth of a god who took the initiative and asked people to worship him because he wanted to be of service to them. This humble opening in the rock was dedicated to the cult of Pan, a deity from Arcadia in the Peloponnese who provided protection for shepherds and ensured the fertility of animals. His sanctuaries are usually scattered in the wilderness far from urban areas.
