Vad du kommer att göra
Discover the most beautiful neighbourhoods and the best sites of Athens, while exploring the private lives of ancient Greeks… Join us on journey through time when Love was not a taboo and Eros was a God! Ancient Greek civilization was a supernova for its time. Art, poetry, philosophy, rhetoric, science… ancient Greeks have handed down to us so many principles and concepts. From Hesiod’s work “Theogony” and the creation of the world to the Homeric Poems and the beautiful Hellen of Troy, Love was at the very heart of Gods’ and mortals’ lives alike. Have you never wondered what ancient Greeks were like in their private lives? How did Perikles, Praxitelis, even the poorest of the commoners in Athens make love? Walking past the “living” proof of ancient Greeks’ greatness, we will be exposed to stimuli that will generate vivid discussions on several aspects of their private lives. What were the passions of the ancient Gods? How did ancient Greek society regard marriage and family? What were the expected behavioural patterns for men and women? Was there paid love in the streets of Athens? What was the case of erastai (lovers) and what did “appropriate” and “latent” love mean? Let us be a bit… indiscreet… let us snoop into their private rooms and come closer to the grandeur of virtue, as they perceived it.
All materials necessary for the realisation of the activities
Hi, we are Dimitris and Connie, two local Athenians and Historians who are passionate about telling stories and sharing our love about antiquity and Greek culture! We love hosting experiences and showing the best of our city. Athens is well-known for its glorious history and is considered to be the world’s ancient capital and the birthplace of Democracy. For us, however, our city is more than an ancient jewel. It is a city full of energy, dreams and strong pulse. It is a stage of expression and creativity. Let us explore together hidden alleys and picturesque neighbourhoods and share rattling stories from the past and present! Trust us, you too will fall in love with Athens :)

During our walk, we will discover beautiful neighbourhoods of Athens, like Thiseio, Plaka and Anafiotika, and we will admire from afar some of the most important sites such as the Acropolis, the Roman Agora, the Hill of the Nymphs, and the ancient cemetery of Kerameikos. We will also make a stop for our little 'sumposium', where we will share local drinks like ancient Athenians!
