Description

Our Christian tour in Athens and Corinth will start early in the morning from Athens, where you will have the chance to enjoy a full city tour that will take you to the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and the Parliament House on Constitution Square, the Panathenaic Stadium, where the first modern Olympics took place in 1896, and some of the most significant buildings of Athens, such as the “Neoclassical Trilogy,” including the Academy, the University and the National Library of Athens, and Omonia Square. Moreover, the tour will take you to the Temple of Olympian Zeus and Hadrian’s Arch, before heading towards the most important monument in the city, the famous Acropolis of Athens. The crown of the Holy Rock is of course the Parthenon, the Propylaea, the Temple of Athena Nike, and the Mars Hill (Areopagus) (Acts 17:22) where Apostle Paul came to preach the word of the Christian religion to the Athenians. After the visit to the Acropolis, the tour will take you to Plaka, a picturesque small quarter of Athens where St Paul preached and met his followers at the Ancient Agora. St Paul spent almost his entire day in the agora, meeting people, exchanging ideas, and discussing the new religion. It is a very important part of the city, and quite significant for the stay of St Paul in Greece and Athens. During the full-day private tour, you will also have time to visit the Lycabettus Hill that offers magnificent views of the entire city of Athens. Later on, you will enjoy a nice Greek lunch, and you will head towards the important city of Corinth. Driving along the coastal road of Athens and Attica you will reach the Corinth Canal, after almost an hour’s drive and you will enjoy a short stop to take some gorgeous pictures of the amazing views. Shortly afterward you will reach Ancient Corinth, one of the most important city-states of ancient Greece and definitely one of the most important parts of St Paul’s journey in Greece. In Ancient Corinth Apostle Paul spent 18 months, preaching to the Jews and Gentiles. The site is overlooked by the Acropolis housing the remains of the Temple of Aphrodite, the goddess of love. In Corinth, St. Paul worked with Aquila and Priscilla. He founded a community here that caused him much grief and prompted him to write at least four letters. St. Paul`s trial by Gallio took place in the agora (Acts 18:12-17). It is from Corinth, also, that St. Paul wrote to the Thessalonians. We celebrate our liturgy today in Corinth with a reflection on Paul the Missionary. We will visit the ruins of Cechrae or Kechrae, the harbor from which St. Paul sailed to Ephesus (Acts 18:18). You will see the ancient agora, the Temple of God Apollo, and the ancient port of Kechreae in Corinth, where St Paul disembarked when visiting Corinth to preach. Kechrae is also known due to the important church established in the area by St Paul before leaving for Ephesus. The private full-day tour will end late in the afternoon bringing you back to Athens.
