EXCURSION DESCRIPTION
We start our tour at Syntagma Square following a short and beautiful route in the city center of Athens. Meet our friendly escort-museologist at the heart of the square next to the round fountain and prepare ourselves for an unforgettable day! During our historical walk we distinguish the former Roya,l Palace where nowadays is based the Greek Parliament and then we continue to the district of Kolonaki. Our first stop is at the Museum of Ancient Greek Technology (or Kotsanas Museum).

The museum hosts a permanent exhibition of the “inventions of the Ancient Greeks” of Kostas Kotsanas and among them we have the chance to see the first ancient robot, the Robot-Maid of Filonas as well as other technological means-inventions that the Ancient Greeks used to have in their daily life. The museum displays around 100 exceptional inventions of the ancient greek world from 2.000 B.C until the end of the ancient greek period.
During the tour in the museum our friendly guide will explain us about the technique of time-recording, the mapping, the cryptography and the astronomy. We will get to know from close the inventions of the ancient Greeks and their unbelievable performance. The exhibits are followed by audiovisual material that will help us understand that technology in ancient Greece just before its end was quite similar to the onsets of modern technology. Exploring that period where the patent rights didn’t exist proves clearly that the West Technology world owes a lot more to the Greeks.

After our tour in the Museum of Ancient Greek Technology we have the chance to visit one of the most “tasteful” local spots with Greek organic products. Later on we enjoy an abundant brunch in a beautiful area in Kolonaki otherwise we can choose a food-tasting experience of delicious handmade pies and learn all the little secrets for the perfect recipe! Meanwhile don’t miss all the interesting stories, myths and legends that our new friend narrate.
