  • First thing to do on this superb full day tour is to visit the Acropolis Hill, before the crowds and the heat begin to rise. The Acropolis, which was the cult center of the pagan city of Athens at the time of St. Paul made him feel how important it was to start preaching right after he arrived in the city by boat at the bay of Phaliron. There you will be able to explore the magnificent gate of Propylaea, the Temple of the wingless Nike, the Erectheion with the Karyatides, and last but not least the masterpiece of Classical architecture, the Parthenon.

    After the Acropolis, we will walk on the engraved steps of Mars Hill that used to lead to the altar dedicated to the unknown God that St. Paul took to reach the top and give his Speech.

    This tour could never be considered complete without visiting the Ancient Greek Agora where the Synagogue used to exist, and where St. Paul chose to go and preach.

    It is time to leave behind the city center driving westwards. You will see the point where St. Paul arrived in Athens by boat in 51 A.D. From there we will continue westwards.

    After our 30minute stop on the Corinth Canal and of course after taking our time to snap some breathtaking pictures and get some rest on the nearby rest area café, your chauffer will drive you through the winding country local roads through olive trees, vineyards and orange trees that grow in abundance in the area. It will feel as if you stepped into the scenery that one sees only in artistic movies and documentaries.

    20 minutes later we will arrive at the next stop of our exploration, the city of Ancient Corinth.

    The Ancient Corinth used to be a city that was a powerful and strategic center where numerous historic, cultural and religious events have taken place.

    St. Paul spent about a year and a half and gave his Speech in the center of the Ancient Agora on the renowned Bema and was joined by his followers Priscilla, Aquila, Timothy and Sylla. This historic event became the foundation of the Christian Church in the region.

    We will see there the Roman Forum. The majority of the archaeological ruins that we can see nowadays date back to the Roman Period, the era that Saint Paul was visiting Corinth. Take your time and walk in the city as St. Paul did.

    During our tour you will also find the spring of Glauke, the fountain of Pinene and discover the myths hidden behind their waters, the market place, the theater, the Odeon and several other Roman buildings while at the same time gaining an in depth understanding of the city’s prominence.

    The Archaeological Museum is of great interest since it is a great introductory to the famous Corinthian pottery and Mosaic Art.

  • There are a few things that are useful for you to know before participating in one of our tours.
    Comfortable clothing and sensible, flat-soled walking shoes are recommended for most locations. Sun glasses, a hat and sun screen are also suggested since the Mediterranean sun is extremely hot during the summer months.
    As far as walking is concerned you have to keep in mind that climbing up to the Acropolis is a rather challenging task. Guests must be able to walk over paved, inclined paths, some with steps and then climb a series of steps to reach the Propylea. The walking surface on top of the Acropolis is rather raw and uneven. It has been preserved in this manner in order to showcase the authentic environment of the monuments.
    Photography is permitted in almost every site throughout the tours and if it is prohibited you will be informed beforehand.
    Local currency (euros) might be needed in order to pay at the spot small entrance fees and small expenses.
    In case one of our guests has some special needs, is under certain medication or has a limited walking endurance you can let us know during the organization of your customized tour and we will make sure that small breaks are incorporated into your itinerary. Also it is suggested that you bring with you a small bottle of water or something small to eat in case you need to during the tour. Furthermore if an individual has advanced accessibility needs you can let us know and allow us to customize the tour to fit your needs.
