Ce que vous allez faire

Discover Athens in a different and interactive way, through stories, myths, theatrical plays and games! As we walk and explore Athens' sites and neighbourhoods, we will be introduced to the concepts of life and death for the ancient Greeks and how their view of the afterlife defined the way they lived. We will talk about Homer’s Iliad and Odyssey and discuss the concepts of ‘memory’ and ‘remembrance’. After learning about the importance of theater in the ancient Greeks’ lives, we will discover the journey from life to the afterlife and to the Underworld, through a short interactive theatrical play written by us, where everyone gets a role! We will learn about Aeschylus, the ‘father of tragedy’, and the sacrifice of Antigone in the name of life after death. Plato’s motto was ‘life must be lived as play’. We will learn about the importance of play for the Ancient Greeks and play some of their games! We will also have the chance to get creative and make something of our own for ‘remembrance’! We will, then, walk to the Rock of Areios Pagos, which was the seat to the ancient criminal court of Athens. This is where people’s life or death was being decided! And this is where we will get the chance to rewrite history and maybe even save the spirit of Socrates! In our last stop, accompanied by old-fashioned liqueurs, we will have our own ‘symposium' and celebrate life together!

Ce qui est inclus

Drinks
Old-fashioned liqueurs at the oldest distillery in town (1 per person)
Equipment
All materials necessary for the realisation of the activities

Dimitris

Hi, we are Dimitris and Conna, two local Athenians and Historians who are passionate about telling stories and sharing our love about antiquity and Greek culture! We love hosting experiences and showing the best of our city. Athens is well-known for its glorious history and is considered to be the world’s ancient capital and the birthplace of Democracy. For us, however, our city is more than an ancient jewel. It is a city full of energy, dreams and strong pulse. It is a stage of expression and creativity. Let us explore together hidden alleys and picturesque neighbourhoods and share rattling stories from the past and present! Trust us, you too will fall in love with Athens :)

Le lieu

We will start from Plaka, the oldest and most beautiful neighbourhood in Athens. We will then walk down the most famous street of Athens, Dionysiou Aeropageitou, past the Acropolis Museum and the beautiful neoclassic buildings. We will pass by the Odeon of Herodes Atticus and reach the Hill of the Nymphs and a hidden spot with a breath-taking view of the Acropolis! Next comes the Rock of Areios Pagos and the secret neighbourhood of Anafiotika!
