Athens Highlights: Myths & Philosophers Walking Tour

Greece is the place where philosophy was born and thrived. Accompanied by a member of our team, you will journey through time in all the philosophical movements of ancient Greece and discover deep connections with our Myths and Gods of Olympus.

Democracy, physics, astronomy, ethics and many other applied sciences stem from philosophy and, naturally, philosophers are considered the world’s first intellectuals. Through a 4 hour private walking tour you will learn every interesting fact about philosophers from Thales of Miletus to Socrates and Plato, and from Aristotle to the Cynic philosopher Diogenes of Sinope, whose famous answer towards Alexander the Great “Stand out of my sunlight”, when he was asked whether there was any favour he might do for him, is indicative of his character.

You will get acquainted with the most important myths of the ancient greek world such as the story behind the birth of goddess Athena and everything around mischievous god Hermes.
