Overview

Let’s meet the places described by the myths of the Athenians.

We will literally do a whole tour of Attica, the wider area of the Athenians and we will see the most important monuments located outside the city of Athens.

We will visit the cave of Pan in Penteli, Sounio and the Temple of Artemis, which according to the ancients, were the most important energy fields of Athens.

We will visit the battlefield of Marathon and Salamis, but also many other points that I consider very important.

However, in this experience, we will see many energy sites, according to the ancient Greeks, and we will have much to discuss and learn.

We think it is wonderful to fill images and emotions! For me that will be the goal.

Highlights

  • • The cave of Penteli & Ancient marble quarries
  • • Marathon battlefield
  • • Temple of Artemis and museum of Vravrona

Itinerary

1. The cave of Penteli & Ancient marble quarries: From here came all the marbles were taken to build the Parthenon, the temples of Zeus, Hephaestus and Poseidon. There located also the cave of Penteli, which was a temple of the god Pan in antiquity. There is also a Byzantine church built in the 11th c AD. There are endless conspiracy theories about this cave. . .
2. .Marathon battlefield: The place that today starts every year the original Marathon running, and the 1rst winning of Athenians against Persians at 490 BC.
3. Temple of Artemis and museum of Vravrona.
4. Temple of Poseidon/Sounio and Lavrio (lunch): After our lunch, in ten minutes driving we will be at the cape of Sounion and the temple of Poseidon, the "must see" of Athens.
5 Athens riviera: This is an incredibly beautiful route, by the sea.
6. Piraeus and Salamis Battlefield: we will see the port and visit the area outside the port, where the naval battle of Salamis took place. There is also the tomb of Themistocles there.

Not really. It depends on you. If you want, ABC trekking can be done independently. You could hire a guide and a porter by yourself instead of going through an agency or not hire a guide at all. Although, not having a guide can be a little problematic during the offseason.

It really depends on you. Is it your first time in Nepal? How confident are you of being able to find your way around? How pressed on time are you? If you go through an agency, it will be costlier but everything will be planned. You will only have to come, trek and return.
