Don’t just imagine Ancient Greece, live it. Our day will start with a panoramic tour of Piraeus, first passing the Temple of Zeus, and Hadrian’s arch, which originally divided the Greek city from Hadrian’s new Roman one. We’ll also see the Monument of the Unknown Soldier, and catch a glimpse of the Evzoni Guards who protect it, in their iconic uniforms. Our guide will also point out the impressive buildings constructed during the Neoclassical period, as well as the Panathenaic Stadium, built in 1896 for the first modern Olympic Games. Traffic permitting, we’ll pause here for a photo stop. We’ll then move on to the Acropolis, the ancient temple with traces of buildings dating back to the Mycenean era of the second millennium BC. Here, you can view the ruins as they once were, including the famous Parthenon and Temple of Athena Nike, through an augmented-reality tablet. By combining the real-time camera’s video and different virtual elements, you can point the camera at various locations of the site and see them as they stood thousands of years ago. Afterwards, you’ll have some free time to explore the ruins under your own steam.
