Overview of the tour in Athens

Leave Athens and drive South West until we reach the Corinth Canal which connects the Aegean Sea with the Ionian Sea (short stop). The route we follow was called the Sacred Way because it was the route taken by a procession celebrating the Eleusinian Mysteries, were initiations held every year for the cult of Demeter and Persephone based at Eleusis in Ancient Greece.

On Fridays, we stop at the Monastery of Daphni, an 11th-century Byzantine monastery. The interior is decorated with superb mosaics. The crowded scenes of the mosaics narrate scenes from the life of Christ and the Virgin.

Shorty after the visit we reach the ancient town of Corinth, where St. Paul lived and preached for two years. The remains of the City, which include the Agora (marketplace) and Apollo’s Temple (6th century B.C.) clearly show how rich and important Corinth was in Ancient Times. Visit the ruins of the ancient city where Paul worked with Aquila and Priscilla, see the remains of the first century shops, the Agora where Paul’s trial by Gallio took place, the Fountain of Peirene, and one of the most outstanding monuments of pre –Roman period, the temple of Apollo.

Return to Athens in time for lunch.
