The Parthenon was built in 438 BC and it was dedicated to Athina, the goddess of wisdom (the city of Athens was named after this goddess).
It is a monument of global cultural heritage and is considered as the greatest achievement of the Ancient Greek civilization.
Odeon of Herodes Atticus
It is located next to the Acropolis and built in the 2nd century AD as an honor to the wife Herodes Atticus, the distinguished Athenian rhetorician and sophist.
It was used mainly for music events and that’s why it was named an Odeon.
National Archaeological Museum
It is considered one of the most important museums in the world that you must visit. It includes exhibits from the prehistoric age up until the final period of the Roman Empire.
Visit the place where the great philosopher Aristotle used to teach.
The Lyceum was best known for the Peripatetic school founded by Aristotle.
The term “peripatetic” is a transliteration of an ancient Greek word that means “given to walking about”.
It is a connotation of the important life decisions every one of us should make in order to take a meaningful course of life.
