Athens Mythology Tour with Acropolis and Ancient Agora
From US$69,51
Overview
Uncovering the ancient Greek mythology behind Athens’ classical sites is difficult without a guide to demystify its legends. With this small-group tour, explore key sites beneath the Acropolis and uncover the myths that surrounded them—background you’d likely miss if exploring alone. Wander the ancient Agora, discover shrines to gods in Plaka, and visit Mars Hill, the mythical setting of the trial of Mars. Entrance fees are at your expense.
What to Expect
Meet your guide in central Athens and set off on foot around the old city’s mythology-related sites. Hear about the gods and legends that underpin Greek mythology and ask any questions you wish along the way.

See the Temple of Olympian Zeus and explore the alleyways of Plaka to discover where long-ago Greeks worshipped their gods. Then, continue to the Agora, ancient Athens’ marketplace, and hear some of the myths that surround it.

Next, ascend the Acropolis hill to visit Mars Hill (Areopagus). Admire the city views from this marble rock, and hear how it was the mythical location of the trial of Mars, the God of War, on a charge of murder.

Finally, view the Panathenaic Way, an ancient road winding up to the Acropolis. Learn how it was the route for annual Panathenaic Festival: a procession dedicated to the god Athena.

Your tour finishes at Monastiraki Square.
