KT0014   HALF DAY : JEWISH HERITAGE (PRIVATE) - ATHENS

In English - From Monday to Friday except weekeds (April through October) approx. 6 hours

Discover Athens ’ Jewish culture on a fascinating 6-hour private tour specifically designed for those who are interested in both the history of the Jewish community of Greece and the must-see sites of ancient and modern Athens .

You will be picked up in the morning by our luxury vehicle and our professional guide in order to see the old Synagogue of Athens , Etz Hayyim, which was built in 1904 and is used today only during the High Holidays. Right across the street is the newer and larger Beth Shalom Sephardic synagogue, built in 1935, renovated in the 70’s, and the one fully used today. Its exterior is in white marble with neoclassical elements, while the spacious interior bears not much resemblance to the Greek tradition regarding synagogue design.

We will continue with a visit to the Jewish museum. This museum was founded in 1977 in order to collect and exhibit the material evidence of 2300 years of Jewish life in Greece . The collection contains more than ten thousand artifacts (some of which are unique) pertaining to the domestic and religious life, as well as the history of the Greek Jews. The Jewish museum is below the slopes of the Acropolis, so you will have the opportunity to have a nice walk to the Acropolis hill, where will be the next stop of this tour.

Acropolis is an UNESCO’S world heritage monument. You will visit the Propylae, the monumental entrance to the Acropolis which blends Doric and Ionic building principles, and the small temple Athena Nike, which stands on a protruding mass of rock, protecting the gate to the citadel and of course the Parthenon, and Erechtheion with its porch of Maidens.

The half day Jewish tour ends with a panoramic drive around center of Athens before the drop off at the door of you hotel in Athens
