Goddess Athena might be the patroness of the city, with whom many of the citizens identified with, but Zeus was the god of gods, the father of all, the mightiest one. This location was a special place for the Athenian people because it was directly related to Zeus.

My name is Elias and I will be your guide on this tour. I am a resident of Athens and I studied  philosophy and art here. On this tour, I will guide you through the Olympieion, a site fascinating for its history and what it reveals about the Athenian world. The 6th and 5th centuries BC in Athens are generally regarded as the transition period from mythology to logic, and the Olympieion is a fantastic example of this.  

I will begin the tour with the story of the birth of the cosmos and the rule of Zeus. Together we will imagine the world the site before us once belonged to. We will explore the history of the temple and the ruins through both fiction and non-fiction stories. We will end our tour at the remains of the Roman bathhouse located at the northwestern side of the entrance.

If you follow the route I recommend by listening to the stories, the tour will take approximately one hour. However, we urge you to take as much time as you want to marvel at these larger than life columns. 

If you're ready, let’s get the tour started!
