Benaki & Cycladic Museum Tour

    • Benaki Museum
    • Cycladic Museum
  • Our licensed tour guide will meet you at the lobby of your accommodation to start together this walking cultural route of exploration.

    With our professional tour guide at your side on every step of the way in both museums you will enjoy a personalized tour during which you will learn details about the most important parts of the exhibition, have the chance to interact and ask as many questions as you want and most importantly experience the museum through the eyes of a person that knows and genuinely loves every last inch of its halls.

    Visit the Benaki Museum first.

    The museum’s permanent collection forms in reality a group of collections that can be divided into many distinct categories that contains in total more than 40,000 items. This vast collection of artifacts encompasses and exhibits the character of the Greek world through a spectacular historical panorama: from antiquity and the age of Roman domination to the medieval Byzantine period; from the fall of Constantinople (1453) and the centuries of Frankish and Ottoman occupation to the outbreak of the struggle for independence in 1821 and from the formation of the modern state of Greece (1830) down to 1922, the year in which the Asia Minor disaster took place.

    Additionally the museum hosts several intriguing modern exhibitions that change every few months and invite the visitors to revisit the museum time after time in order to explore a new and exciting aspect of Greek history.

    The Cycladic Museum follows…

    If you are looking to explore the magnificent world of Aegean art the Museum of Cycladic Art is a wonderful start. Along with the Minoans and Mycenaeans, the Cycladic people are counted as one of the three major Aegean cultures.

    Cycladic art therefore comprises one of the three main branches of Aegean art and is of great worldwide importance for the Field of Arts.
    Cycladic culture flourished on the islands of the central Aegean during the Early Bronze Age (3rd millennium BC).

    The permanent collection of the Museum of Cycladic Art is one of the most comprehensive collections of Cycladic antiquities worldwide, comprising an astonishing variety of marble figurines and vessels, bronze tools and weapons, as well as pottery from all phases of the Early Cycladic period.

    During your tour you will get the chance to stroll through the museum main halls which are filled with the easily distinguishable Cycladic figurines and discover the history hidden behind the evolution of this artistic movement.

    Furthermore you will enjoy a small dose of ancient Greek but also Cypriot Art as they are exhibited in other parts of the museum’s permanent collection.

Byzantine Athens Tour

  • The reference list of what you will see and experience during the Byzantine Athens walking tour includes but is not limited to:

    • Byzantine Museum
    • Church of Old Metropolis
    • Church of New Metropolis of Athens
    • Kapnikarea Church
    • Pantanassa Church
    • Flea Market
    • Church of Ayioi Asomatoi
  • This private walking tour is especially designed as an exceptional introduction to Athens in the Byzantine Period (330 AD – 1453AD) combined with the Christian spreading that followed.

    The first part of the tour starts with a walk through the halls of the beautiful Byzantine Museum of Athens. This museum is particularly renowned for its intricate collection of Byzantine icons that are recognized worldwide for their immense cultural value. The museum’s exhibit depicts 1700 years of Byzantine art and architecture through the 25,000 ecclesiastical objects that have been gathered from sites all over Greece, the Balkans, Cyprus, Constantinople and Russia to create a fascinating all inclusive collection.

    After our visit at the museum, the next stop will be the church of Old Metropolis. This charming church is located near the new Cathedral. It was built in the late 12th century and it is dedicated to Virgin Mary and Saint Eleftherios while the ancient and byzantine bas-reliefs that were included in the construction of the church create an intricate architectural look. The new Metropolis nearby was built from 1842 and 1862 as the main cathedral of Athens. It is a domed church built in the neobyzantine and neoclassical style and holds a both religious and architectural value.

    Next up is the Kapnikarea church, a domed Byzantine church dedicated once again to Virgin Mary. The original building was constructed in the 11th century and still remains a beautiful architectural site. The Pantanassa church which is a three- aisled basilica built in the 10th century is the next stop of our byzantine exploration. The church belonged to the Monastery of The Assumption of Mary and gave its name to the surrounding popular district of Monastiraki. After walking through the flea market of Athens you will arrive to your last destination the church of Ayioi (Saints) Asomatoi. This cruciform church built in the 11th century is a great example of the subsequent Islamic influence that the islamic rule had on certain buildings.

    All these churches have been preserved through the centuries, defying the effect of human interventions and remain imposingly as the sole complete architectural landmarks of Byzantine Athens.

    Throughout our tour we will walk through the city’s streets and spot small Byzantine and Christian traces in the buildings of the capital while at the same time exploring how the general topography of Athens was greatly influenced by the byzantine and christian element.

    Together we will embark on this quest to delve into the Byzantine and Christian aspect of Greece’s culture and explore how through the centuries the religious element affected and shaped many sectors of human activities such as the architecture and topography of the country’s biggest city.

  • 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.
