About Ancient Athens
As Ancient Athens was the cradle of philosophy, sciences, democracy and theatre, each historic monument has a different story to tell each more interesting and important than the other. Luckily for us they are very well preserved and are displaying the pride Greeks take in their history. That is why the very entrance of the city is characterized by its symbolic Hadrian’s Arch. Very close to the entrance is the temple of Olympian Zeus dating back to the 6th century B.C. Don’t miss the chance to explore the theatre of Dionysos where all the greatest ancient playwrights performed their masterpieces.
