We will pick you up from your hotel in the morning to drive to the port of Faliro in Athens. Apostle Paul disembarked there from Thessaloniki (northern Greece) to continue his missionary journey throughout the eastern Mediterranean for the dissemination of Christianity. Afterwards we will visit one of the most famous sites of the world the Acropolis and the Parthenon. We continue to Mars Hill (Areopagus) where Apostle Paul was invited to speak, the place where he delivered his most dramatic and the fullest reported sermon (Acts 17:22-31). We will also visit the Ancient Agora (Market), there Apostle Paul spent a great part of his stay in Athens, there as well he met and spoke to the Epicureans and Stoic Philosophers. At the Ancient Agora the Apostle of Nations informed the Athenians on Christianity and gave an alternative to the established religion of paganism. Our next stop will be at the Byzantine and Christian museum that possesses religious artefacts of the early Christian Byzantine, Medieval, post-Byzantine and later periods. Our last stop before transferring you back to your hotel will be at the ex cathedral church of Athens, of St. Dionysius Areopagite. The Saint was converted to Christianity by the preaching Apostle Paul during the famous Mars Hill sermon and he was the first Bishop of Athens.
