Acropolis of Athens

09:00 to 10:30
1 hour 30 minutes

Overlooking the city, the Acropolis was first known as Cecropia, in acknowledgement to the first legendary king of Athens, Cecrops. The Citadel was first constructed in the 5th century BC by Pericles who was a general during the Golden Age of Athens.

It was under his jurisdiction that the most famous remains, such as the Parthenon, the Erechtheion and the Temple of Athena Nike were created. Although Pericles had a great influence on the architecture of the city, the area was inhabited for at least 2 centuries previously, there is little evidence of what happened during these times.

Moving into the Hellenistic and Roman periods, many of the buildings were restored having been damaged due to age or war. Several monuments dedicated to kings of the era were added to the citadel. Further into the Julio-Claudian era, the last significant buildings were erected, including the Temple of
Rome and Augustus and the amphitheatre built by aristocrat Atticus Herodes.

In the years that followed, the Acropolis was the bustling centre of Athens, serving many purposes; the Parthenon alone was used as a church, a headquarters for the army and a harem. The architecture of Byzantine, Ottoman and Frankish influence made its way into the city, consequentially removed when Greece declared independence in the 19th century.

Today, few of the buildings remain, including the Theatre of Dionysus, Atticus Herodes’ amphitheatre and the Erechtheum Temple, dedicated to Athena and Poseidon.

Acropolis Museum

10:30 to 12:00
1 hour 30 minutes

Immediately after the founding of the Greek State, discussions of an Acropolis Museum on the hill of the Acropolis began. In 1863, it was decided that the museum would be to the southeast of the Parthenon and construction began.

By the 1970s, the museum could not cope with the large numbers coming through its doors and so a large one building was built. Covering 25,000 square meters, with exhibition space of over 14,000 square meters, it is ten times the size of the old museum.

The first gallery, the Slopes of the Acropolis, houses finds from the sanctuaries, as well as objects that Athenians used in everyday life from all historical periods. The Archaic Acropolis Gallery allows you to see three-dimensional exhibits. With the benefit of the changing natural light, you can discover the delicate surfaces of the sculptures.

In the centre of the Parthenon Gallery, you can watch a video presentation about the Parthenon. In the same area, there are ancient marble inscriptions recording detailed cost records of its construction and the statue of Athena Parthenos.

The stadium is located on the site of an ancient stadium and for many centuries hosted games in which nude male athletes competed in track events – athletics championships, as we would call them today. The games, which since antiquity had been held in an area far from the city, were included in the programme of the Panathenaia festival celebrations in 566/565 BC.

Standing at around 17 metres high, the structure was considered to be one of the largest temples in the ancient world with a total of 104 columns, however, only 15 have survived since construction was completed in 132 AC, under the Roman Emperor Hadrian.

A century after its completion, the temple was ravaged during a barbarian invasion in the 3rd century AD, it fell into disuse, and from the archaeological findings of today, it is likely that it was never repaired, eventually being reduced to ruins.

Found just off the shores of Mykonos, Delos is largely regarded as the most sacred site in all of Greece. Delos was considered a holy site 1000 years before Leto decided the island would be the birthplace of twin gods Artemis and Apollo, as told in Olympic Greek Mythology.

In finding the presence of both Dionysus and Leto, the island established great national significance during the ancient period, particularly for the Ionians. In spite of this, in-depth excavations did not take place on the island until the mid-19th century.

The island was purified to be deemed fit for the gods at the time, there was to be no death or birth in order to preserve its sanctity. Once the Romans came into power, this changed drastically.

The island became a trading port, where Romans would come to meet to purchase slaves, it later became a hub of trading activity in the region, which assisted in its development. However, this development came to a drastic halt during the Mithridatic War of 88 BC.

As a consequence of its perverse history paired with a lack of natural resources, the island became uninhabited for some time. The island is an abandoned labyrinth of ancient temples, marketplaces, sacred houses and sculptures, preserved wonderfully.
