The Parthenon
The Temple Of Poseidon
Thermopylae

The Parthenon

Dominating the Athenian skyline, this beautiful, world-renowned monument is dedicated to Goddess Athena, the virgin patron of Athens. Constructed in 438 B.C. by Ictinus, Callicrates and Carpion, under the supervision of Phidias, the Parthenon is the most important surviving monument of the ancient world and stands as an enduring symbol of Ancient Greece and the Athenian Democracy.

The Temple Of Poseidon

The Temple of Poseidon, at Sounion, the tip of the Attica peninsula (45 miles southeast of Athens), was built in 440 B.C. However, archaeological findings show the area was a site of worship as far as 700 B.C. Carved into the base of one of the columns of the Temple of Poseidon is the name of the famous romantic poet Lord Byron. It is possible he made the inscription during his first visit to Greece.

Thermopylae

The pass of Thermopylae is the historical site of the battle that took place in 480 B.C. between the Greeks and the Persians. Under the command of King Leonidas of Sparta, the greatly outnumbered Greek army remained in the pass to prevent Xerxes’ vast cavalry and infantry force further invading the land. They held ground for three days before being outflanked via a hidden goat path, which according to legend, was shown to the Persians by a traitor named Ephialtes. However, their feat gave the Greek army enough time to reassemble and successfully combat the Persians in following battles. The epigram on the monuments reads : Oh stranger, tell the Lacedaemonians (Spartans), that we lie here, obedient to their words.

Athens Night Life

Some people say that the true essence of being Greek is revealed under the moon light.
I can help you discover the real nightlife of Athens by suggesting nightclubs and traditional taverns in Plaka (the old city of Athens) with authentic Greek music, home made wine and traditional Greek food.

 

Additionally you can combine all the above by first having a tour of Athens visiting the most important sights, beautifully lit under the moon light.
