Our tour starts by visiting the Mars Hill in Acropolis area where St. Paul spoke for the first time to the Athenians about the new Religion. Then we continue our tour to see the Byzantine and Christian Museum, which hosts 25.000 artifacts. Date from between the 3rd and 20th century AD and their provenance encompasses the entire Greek world, as well as regions in which Hellenism flourished. The size and range of the collections and value of the exhibits make the Museum a veritable treasury of Byzantine and post-Byzantine art and culture.
After we drive to Mt. Hymettos to see Kaisariani Monastery. Build in the 11th century, it was dedicated to the Presentation of the Virgin to the Temple. The interior of the church is decorated with wall paintings dating from the 18th century while those in the narthex date back to 1682.
After the Monastery, we return back to Athens.
