    Greek Mythology Traces is an entertaining journey through downtown Athens with the accompaniment of glorious Greek myths. Follow a carefully designed route through Athenian landmarks, explore some of the most magnificent parts of the city and dive into the captivating reality of ancient times as you read riveting stories about the gods and heroes of ancient Athens.

    The tour begins at the Temple of Olympian Zeus where you learn about the difficult childhood of the supreme god and his struggles against his own father and the Titans. Zeus and his siblings (Poseidon, Hades, Hera, Hestia and Demeter) fought against the dominant Titans for the right to rule the world in a struggle that raged for ten years. Next stop is the Monument of Lysicrates, honouring Dionysus, the god associated with the vine, winemaking, ritual madness, religious ecstasy and theatre. During one of his journeys, he was captured by a group of Tyrrhenian pirates who wanted to sell him as a slave. His miraculous escape is narrated on the monument’s marble surface.

    The cave of Aglauros and the Erechtheion are both associated with Athena and her early days as patron-goddess of Athens. Areopagus Hill, on the other hand, is the site of the first murder trials in the Greek world. Ares, the god of war, sought vengeance for the rape of his daughter; Daedalus was charged with the murder of his nephew, whom he pushed off the Acropolis because he was envious of the young boy’s skill with his hands. The Temple of Hephaestus honours the god of fire and brings to mind his difficult relationships with both his mother and his wife. Finally, the Statue of Theseus commemorates one of the main heroes in Greek mythology who was especially admired in Athens as the founder of the city. The Athenians took advantage of every opportunity to associate themselves with Theseus and project themselves as the descendants of the great king.
