See the highlights of Ancient and Modern Athens and learn about the important historical influence the Greek Jews had on the Byzantine Empire and throughout the period of Ottoman Greece before World War II and its devastating Holocaust.

Your well-paced private walking tour begins with a visit to the Jewish museum (1977), where you will discover more about past Greek Jewish communities and their unique customs through a collection of over 8,000 rare books and publications, textiles, jewelry, domestic and religious artifacts, all showcasing their domestic and religious life in bygone years.

Continue your narrated tour with a pleasant stroll through the narrow streets of Plaka, a flea market neighborhood below the Acropolis, passing the Ancient Agora, known for its notable monuments, before reaching the bustling Monastiraki Square, where the Church of the Pantanassa is located.

Finally, visit the Etz-Hayyim (1904) and the Beth Shalom Sephardic (1935) synagogues both facing each other in the area of Thission.

Please note:

  • Due to security reasons, all visitors must show identification on entrance to the synagogues.

  • Check with your Virtuoso Travel Advisor for holidays or week days where museums and archaeological sites may be closed.
