Meet your guide in the Acropolis Metro station and walk along the pedestrian area which lies at the bottom of the Acropolis. With a few pictures and guided by our language, rich in words with universal meaning, the visitor is encouraged to search for information about or to walk in places with names that are part of history: Areopagus, Pnyx, Hill of the Muses, Koile Street, Observatory, Petralona, Thissio, Temple of Hephaestus. These are seldom followed itineraries, short trips in space and time that carry the weight of decades of history. The area to the west of the Acropolis is the ideal place for the visitor to delve into the long history of the city, from the early to the classical antiquity, and from there to the first years of the young capital of the newly formed Greek state until today. A kind of kaleidoscope, the exhibition is an “itinerary” that deftly balances technology and culture and joins the glorious past of the country to its promising future, arriving at the alarm clock of Plato which “strikes the milestones”.
