Full description
This is a self-guided mobile tour provided by our tour-guide app. The tour is based on an award-winning storytelling concept and the fascinating narratives prepared by handpicked destination experts. Enjoy this multilingual tour by using your Android or iOS smartphone or tablet at your own pace, even if you are offline.

This tour is an entertaining journey through downtown Athens with the accompaniment of glorious Greek myths. Follow a carefully designed route through Athenian landmarks, explore some of the most magnificent parts of the city and dive into the captivating reality of ancient times as you read riveting stories about the gods and heroes of ancient Athens.

The tour begins at the Temple of Olympian Zeus where you learn about the difficult childhood of the supreme god and his struggles against his own father and the Titans.

The Cave of Aglauros and the Erechtheion are both associated with Athena and her early days as patron-goddess of Athens. The Areopagus Hill, on the other hand, is the site of the first murder trials in the Greek world. The Temple of Hephaestus honors the god of fire and brings to mind his difficult relationships with both his mother and his wife. Finally, the Statue of Theseus commemorates one of the main heroes in Greek mythology who was especially admired in Athens as the founder of the city. The Athenians took advantage of every opportunity to associate themselves with Theseus and project themselves as the descendants of the great king. To take this self-guided tour you will need the app on your iOS or Android device.
