The buildings in Aegina have a neoclassical architecture with folk elements. They were built during the 19th century and they remind us that Aegina were once the capital city of Greece for two years.

Aegina is well-known for its history and for its art and craft events that take place there. The beauty of the island is undisputable and for many decades, many Greek and foreign artists and literary writers preferred to visit this island.

In the narrow streets of the island there are colorful houses and beautiful flowers along with picturesque shops and taverns.

Acropolis Small Group Walking Seminar:

The Acropolis offers such an excellent safe haven and towering presence, it's no wonder that the Athenians chose this spot to create their history shaping city.

During this three-hour focused walk we'll look closely at the Acropolis and its fundamental role in the city. We'll break down its archaeological history, from construction to ruin to discovery to reconstruction, giving you the tools to help you read the monuments. We'll learn about the difference between the different orders of architecture (Doric, Ionic, etc.) and how the ancient Greeks planned, designed, and executed these amazing structures.

Our visit will cover the main buildings on the Acropolis, including the Erechtheion, temple of Athena Nike, the Propylaia, and, of course, the Parthenon. We'll spend considerable time discussing the role of religion in Athenian culture and cover, in broad gestures, the sweep of ancient Greek history. Certainly with the wonderful views of the rest of the city, we'll look at how the rock of the Acropolis itself serves as a kind of anchor to the modern development of Athens.

This walk will also include a visit to the stunning new Acropolis Museum, designed by Bernard Tschumi and opened in 2009. With the layout of the ruins on the Acropolis fresh in our minds, we'll look at some of the museums treasures, including the wonderful re-creation of the frieze of the Parthenon, with empty spaces for the Elgin Marbles now housed in the British Museum.

Acropolis Private Walking Seminar:

During this three-hour focused walk we'll look closely at the Acropolis and its fundamental role in the city. We'll break down its archaeological history, from construction to ruin to discovery to reconstruction, giving you the tools to help you read the monuments. We'll learn about the difference between the different orders of architecture (Doric, Ionic, etc.) and how the ancient Greeks planned, designed, and executed these amazing structures.

Our visit will cover the main buildings on the Acropolis, including the Erechtheion, temple of Athena Nike, the Propylaia, and, of course, the Parthenon. We'll spend considerable time discussing the role of religion in Athenian culture and cover, in broad gestures, the sweep of ancient Greek history. Certainly with the wonderful views of the rest of the city, we'll look at how the rock of the Acropolis itself serves as a kind of anchor to the modern development of Athens.

This walk will also include a visit to the stunning new Acropolis Museum, designed by Bernard Tschumi and opened in 2009. With the layout of the ruins on the Acropolis fresh in our minds, we'll look at some of the museums treasures, including the wonderful re-creation of the frieze of the Parthenon, with empty spaces for the Elgin Marbles now housed in the British Museum. We'll emerge with a deeper understanding of Athenian society and the central position of the Acropolis in it.

Orientation to Athens - Private Tour:

With nearly 3000 years of continuous history Athens can be daunting. This basic overview walk is designed to help us get our bearings without being superficial. We'll explore some fundamental themes and draw our attention to specific details in order to make sense, on a basic level, of this very rich but complicated city.

Led by an variety of specialist from our network in Athens, this walk usually begins in Syntagma Square, the center of the city. With some archaeological finds from the construction of the metro and surrounded by 19th and 20th century buildings, Syntagma gives us a good base for shifting back and forth across time periods.

From here we normally immerse ourselves in Plaka, the historic neighborhood in the shadow of the Acropolis. There is much to explore here, from Byzantine churches dating to the 11th century, a maze of streets from the same period, to modern art deco and contemporary meze restaurants.

We may climb the north slope of the Acropolis to experience Anafiotika, the beguiling rural village clinging there, or head deeper towards Monastiraki. Or, we may decide to circumnavigate the Acropolis along the pedestrian walkway, passing through the archaeological core.

Along the way our docent will provide us with some of the visual tools we'll need later in our trip to read monuments and place the city in a historical and cultural context. Ample energy will be spent answering questions and helping with way-finding. And, we'll make sure to stop along the way for a snack
