    The South Slope of the Acropolis

    Under the shade of the trees, we start our tour with an introduction to the greek mythology, the gods and heroes of the so called golden era, as well as the unique history of the Acropolis rock. The first spot that we encounter is the ancient theater of Dionysus. The children will love to hear fun facts about the life of the god, the Satyrs and the first tragedies and comedies that were enacted, right here in this very theater. On our way to the Acropolis we will stop by the temple of Asclepius, the god healer. The stories of the birth of the god, the Centaurs and sick people seeking healing will for sure astonish the young explorers. Of course, we will not miss the chance to visit the renowned Roman Music Hall, the Odeon of Herod Atticus.You will be thrilled to know that this is still in use, after so many centuries and hosts the famous Athens Music Festival, every year. We are almost here! Learn about the Propylaea, the Acropolis' main gate, and stand in awe before the Temple of Nike, the goddess of victory in ancient Greece.
