A bit about Greek Mythology

Although Greek mythology is thousands of years old, it is still relevant today, being both beneficial in our everyday lives, and influential in many ways. Far more than merely being entertaining myths, it has shaped much of what we have achieved up to our modern era, influencing countless areas including language, astronomy, business, medicine, psychology, athletics, and science.

We invite you to visit the one landmark you should visit in Athens, the Acropolis, in a unique guided tour where you will discover the myths surrounding all the major monuments of Athens, from the Parthenon to the Ancient Agora.
