Description

Step inside one of the most potent landmarks of Greece and enjoy a unique experience provided by a pre-booked e-ticket combined with a digital audio tour on your smartphone. As you approach the Great Propylon, freshen up your Greek Mythology and listen to the story of the Great Deluge, the divine wrath that fell upon humankind on a day when Zeus felt kind of stormy. Weave through the enormous 17-meter pillars and go on a riotous journey back in time to learn about the turbulent 700-year history of the construction of the temple and its fate throughout the centuries. At the same time, this is a gripping coming-of-age story of the city itself as it is rolled into a brilliantly tied narrative. Among many other stories, you will learn about the gory bloodbath upon which the city was founded by legendary Theseus. Hear about the attempts of an Athenian tyrant and a Roman emperor to juxtapose their rule over men to the celestial power of Zeus. Listen to the tale of the ferocious thunderstorm that brought about terrible damage to the temple. Learn about the premonitions of imminent disaster among the locals in 19th-century Athens. Finally, you will end your tour at close proximity to the temple, where you will discover the relics of an ancient bathhouse and learn about the rejuvenating benefits of public baths.
