    Stop: 5 hours
    We start our tour at Acropolis Metro Station getting ready to walk through the city center of Athens like the Ancient Greeks used to do. First we visit the district of Plaka where the upper class ancient Greeks used to set memorials of their victories in the theatrical drama contests. As we walk we learn about their daily life and details regarding their habits and customs. Admire the theatre of Dionysus where the lower class ancient Athenians used to wait in the queue in order to enter free of charge and watch tragedies/comedies of famous authors. Let the Parthenon catch your eye; the masterpiece of the Greek classical architecture and climb up till the Areus Pagus Hill where cases of murder used to be tried. Enjoy the breathtaking view to the ancient agora. Then we visit Irakleidon (or Herakleidon) museum where we have the chance to admire the technological achievements of the Ancient Greeks. We discover the Eureka project, the “Automata” and the Antikythera Mechanism. We combine our experience with a coffee break against the amazing view of the Acropolis. Argue like a philosopher about the purpose of the human existence, about the meaning of happiness and head for Pnyka in order to take part in the Athenian assembly. Our experienced archaeologist-historian will also recommend you the most famous places to visit during your stay. Step into Socrates Prison and live the last days and moments of the famous philosopher’s life.  Finally, we have lunch at the nearby traditional district of Thissio (optional) where we have the chance to taste the “oinomelo”; a hot (or cold) combination of wine with honey that the Ancient Greeks used to drink.

It’s a long drive each way but totally worth it to experience the basic wonders of Meteora if you only have a day.
