What to expect

For those interested in history, philosophy, soul rebirth, holistic medicine and love sun and sea food, this is the tour for you. Alongside your guide, follow the "Sacred Way” from Athens to Eleusina and see all the important stops the ancient procession did on their way to the Demeter temple.

Eleusis is the ancient city with the most interesting secrets of humanity, the Eleusinian mysteries. It is still not known what they did at the mysteries, but its known that they had the answer to the universal question: "what happens after death".

At the Eleusis archaeological site and museum, you'll see the path that Persephone took to the underworld and all the places the “Abduction of Persephone” myth describes. You'll wonder and maybe discover why great people such as Plato, Aristotle, Sophocles, Pindar and many others were initiated into the Eleusinian mysteries.

On your way to Epidaurus, you'll stop to see the Corinth canal built in the 1890s that connects the central Mediterranean Sea to the Aegen Sea then visit the sunken city of Epidaurus where you can swim, take underwater photos and have lunch in a traditional restaurant by the sea. Followed by a visit to the great ancient Epidaurus theater and the temple of god Asclepius, the first medical center for psychotherapy, rejuvenation and mental wellness resort.

Your trip will end at the first university, Plato’s Academy in Athens, where you can enjoy a place not yet visited by many tourists and revisit Plato's routes.
