Monday 22nd of October 2018: Athens sightseeing
(Acts 17:16-34)"Now while Paul waited for them at Athens, his spirit was stirred in him, when he saw the city wholly given to idolatry..."
In the morning we will begin our sightseeing tour of Athens, which includes the house of parliament, the ancient olympic stadium (a.k.a. Kallimarmaron, Panathenaic Stadium), the temple of Zeus and the Hellenic Academy.
We will then go to the Acropolis hill and visit the world famous Parthenon and the Erechtheion. We will continue to the nearby Ares Rock (Areopagus - Mars Hill) where Ap. Paul gave his well known sermon (Acts 17:16-34). On this historic place, having a very good view of the modern city of Athens, we will have the possibility of prayer for Greece.
Our day's tour will end with a visit to the new Acropolis museum. The Acropolis Museum is an archaeological museum focused on the findings of the archaeological site of the Acropolis of Athens. The museum was built to house every artifact found on the rock and on the surrounding slopes, from the Greek Bronze Age to Roman and Byzantine Greece. It also lies over the ruins of a part of Roman and early Byzantine Athens. It has been honored ranking as the 11th in the world and 8th top museum in Europe!
