Culture

Under the blue Attic sky, on the countless islands and on the mountainous mainland, in a sundrenched country surrounded by the vast blue Mediterranean Sea, flourished one of the most important cultures that world history has ever known: the Greek civilization. A civilization that conceived of the principles of democracy, equality and egalitarianism in the eyes of law and state, which examined the meaning of philosophy and delved into its many facets, which coined the terms “ethics”, “epistemology” and “metaphysics”.

Great personalities were born here. Philosophers and writers, admirals and generals, athletes and sculptors… Was it the Greek light that they bathed in that fostered this greatness? It was the right place and the right time in history that gave humanity the likes of Aristotle, Socrates, Plato, Pericles, Phidias, Aeschylus, Leonidas, Themistocles, Sophocles, Aristophanes, Euripides, Herodotus, Hippocrates…

Thousands of monuments scattered in every corner of this land and exhibits in museums throughout the world attest to the splendor that thrust the entire western world into the Greek way of thinking. You’ll hear the whispers of another age in sun-soaked marbles, imposing remnants of centuries whose dazzling brightness will forevermore shine.

Walk around the great Acropolis of Athens, its Parthenon and other monuments loftily perched atop the sacred rock. Then it’s on to Philoppapos Hill and over to the theater of Herod Atticus before making your way down to the famed Acropolis Museum, patiently awaiting the return of its glorious absent “marbles”. Finally, a stroll through the contemporary labyrinth within the city’s historic commercial “triangle” leads you to colorful Monastiraki Square. Let us guide you through the Panathenaic Stadium, where the revival of the Olympic Games took place in the 19th century, in the land that conceived of the notion and was their first host. Marvel at the simplistic forms of the ancient art of the Cyclades at the Museum of Cycladic Art and travel to mystery-shrouded Delphi or the great theater of Epidaurus. No matter which route you chose to travel along, Greece will unfold before your eyes and reveal the multitude of reasons for which it has a special place in the hearts of millions of people the world over.
