• Will start our exploration, by walking to the hill of Philopappos near Acropolis and share some history facts about ancient Athens and Greece through times. We'll stop at the famous "Socrates's prison", then at the "Pnyx", where the great political struggles of Athens during the Golden Age were fought out. Next we’ll head at the Hill of the Musses and finally arrive at the top of the hill where the ancient Greek mausoleum: "Monument of Philopappos" is lying. • Along the way, you’ll have the chance to shoot really beautiful photos of the surroundings, the Parthenon, the temple of Athena and enjoy a great view of the whole city of Athens. Finally, we'll explore the hidden art of the ancient greek phalanx (ancient greek fighting style) during the persian wars (500-448bce), the strategy, the equipment and the movement of every Greek hoplite (pair) that made him a unique soldier through the ages. • The Spartan king Leonidas and his brave 300 soldiers, the clever and cunning Athenian Politian and general Miltiades used this fighting style and managed to defend the Greek cities from the Great Persian invasion. ⭐If you are an ADRENALINE lover and love SNOW join us to our winter SKI experience⭐ ►https://www.airbnb.gr/experiences/1178553◄
