All participants will be personally welcomed at Athens Airport and escorted to their apartments in the ancient city of Lavrio. The two guest apartments are new, and each consist of three double rooms with kitchen and bathroom. Breakfast is included in the price in the form of a well-stocked refrigerator. Any additional special culinary requirements must be made by the participants themselves in one of the nearby supermarkets.
Ancient monuments or modern culture – the port city of Lavrio offers a bit of everything. With its early history of mining on the Attica coast, it is known for its ore mining. In ancient times, the wealthy people helped defend Greece. Through generous donations in the form of 200 modern warships, the oppression by the Persians could be ended. The victory gave birth to democracy in Greece. In ancient times, up to 30,000 people worked in the mines in the Lavriotiki region. The oldest Greek amphitheater known for its oval shape, Thoriko, dates from this period.
Zeus und Apollo, stands for German management, easy access to history and culture and relaxed owner-guided tours. At the first dinner together in a typical Greek tavern, we will inform you about the course of our joint active week. We are happy to answer all of your open questions.
We start with a gratitude mediation positive into the day.
At 10:00 we visit Lavrio amphitheater with its long history. Afterwards we visit the caves of Peania.
The cave was discovered in 1926, but it was difficult to access. It was not until long after the Second World War and the Civil War – 1954 – that the construction of an artificial entrance began, because the natural one was at the top of the dome-shaped cave and could not be used. The cave is 38.5 meters high and covers an area of approx. 4000 m².
It was formed around 2 to 3 million years ago and offers a variety of natural beauties. Huge stalactites and stalagmites, which grow only centimeters in thousands of years before they merge into stalagnates, adorn the cave, which appears to be built on several floors. We continue to the Temple of Poseidon at Cape Sunion.
From the parking lot we hike the short distance up to the temple and pay homage to the god of the sea.
Depending on the weather, we experience the most beautiful Sunset in the Aegean Sea. We spend the evening having dinner together.
After Yoga and stretching for relaxation,
we start to Anavyssos to visit a typical Greek weekly market.
After, we are going to have lunch at the seaside.
In the afternoon, we are going to visit the wellness & spa center. Everybody will find a suitable treatment.
The early evening is for your leisure time. In the evening we meet for a barbecue in good company.
The morning is at your disposal. Optionally, you can take part in our workshop “Achieving goals without pressure” from 9:30 am.
At 11:30 am we take our tour bus to Athens.
You can visit the Acropolis and the Acropolis Museum there or just tour the city.
Then we meet for a small tour of the old town and a bougatsa.
After a joint dinner at the foot of the Acropolis, we start to a Night Walk and round off the day with a visit to an old town roof bar. Let yourself be surprised, you will be amazed.
We start the day with a mediation.
Then we drive along one of the most beautiful coastal roads in Europe towards Athens. We’ll have a bite to eat there. Then we enjoy a typical oriental spa feeling in a hammam.
In the late afternoon we are going to the Athens Glyfada district, and stroll on the Athens Riviera and perhaps have coffee with a view.
Before breakfast we start with a few yoga exercises.
Today we are going to hike through Sunion National Park towards Agios Konstantinos. There we visit the church where Peter supposedly spent a few days on the way from Israel to Rome. On the way we have a picnic in the national park.
Then our tour bus takes us to Lake Vouliagmeni,
one of the last stops on our mythology tour. This small freshwater lake is fed by subterranean currents that seep through the Ymittos mountain range. The lake is just a few meters from the seashore at the foot of a rocky hill. It is constantly being supplemented by both the sea and the underground thermal springs. A well-deserved bath of the gods in this lake with its therapeutic properties and mineral ingredients such as potassium, sodium, lithium, ammonium, calcium, iron, chlorine and iodine, combined with high salt concentrations and the high temperatures. After an afternoon break, we end our days together in a wonderful evening pub.
A pleasant journey home to all of you. If you liked it, spread the word. If not, tell us. We are looking forward to a reunion. Maybe the next time you come with your family, friends, with your company or simply because you liked it so much. We are also happy to organize individual tours. We wish you all the very best, good health and always a hand’s breadth of asphalt under your wheels.
