Ancient Athens Running Tour 10k
US$70.67
Overview

Combine sightseeing in Ancient Athens with a 6-mile (10-km) run that takes you around the Acropolis and other historical monuments. Follow in the footsteps of Aristotle along a route typically taken with his philosophy students and learn from an informative guide while you jog at a steady pace. You’ll hear all about Greek and Roman history along the way.

What to Expect
The road we have chosen is also called “Aristotle’s Peripatos” or “Aristotle’s Walk”. That is the route Aristotle walked in ancient times with his students while discussing philosophical matters; hence Aristotle’s school of philosophy was called “peripatetic”. This run features all of Athens’ most celebrated monuments such as the Acropolis, the tunnel of Attalos and the monument of Hephaestus. We also pass by many Roman monuments which allow us to get a feel for the changes that happened between the Ancient Greek and the Roman periods. This tour combines physical exercise with an insight into the fascinating Ancient Greek culture, truly exemplifying the ideal: “A healthy mind in a healthy body”.

Great Tour With Michael

If you’re a runner this is a great way to see historic Athens. Michael was fun and knowledgeable about this great city. Go in the morning before the crowds and the heat. Highly recommended.
