This biblical walking tour takes you first to the Acropolis Hill, before the crowds and the heat begin to rise. The Acropolis, which was the cult center of the pagan city of Athens at the time of St. Paul made him feel how important it was to start preaching right after he arrived in the city by boat at the bay of Phaliron.There you will be able to explore the magnificent gate of Propylaea, the Temple of the wingless Nike, the Erectheion with the widely known female statues, the imperious maidens called Karyatides, and last but not least the masterpiece of Classical architecture, the Parthenon.

From the Acropolis Hill you will be able to gaze the other historical hills of Athens that are Areopagus, Philopappus Hill (or Hill of the Muses), Hill of the Nymphs, Pnyx,and the Hill of Lycabettus. The Acropolis, meaning the highest edge of the city gives you the chance to enjoy a panoramic view of the theater of Dionysus, the Odeum of Herodes Atticus, the Ancient Greek Agora, the modern city of Athens and even the port of Piraeus.

After the Acropolis, we will walk on the engraved steps of Mars Hill that used to lead to the altar dedicated to the unknown God that St. Paul took to reach the top and give his Speech.

This tour could never be considered complete without visiting the Ancient Greek Agora where the Synagogue used to exist, and where St. Paul chose to go and preach. Walk with your tour guide to the Ancient Greek Agora and let yourself take a tour back in time to the Agora of the 51 A.D. when St. Paul was in Athens.
