Чем вы займетесь

Eleusis was once famous all over the Mediterranean world as the home of the Great Mysteries, a celebration in honour of the goddess Demeter and her daughter Persephone. Cicero considered the Mysteries as the best among the many excellent and divine institutions which Athens brought forth and contributed to human life. This tour aims at presenting the ancient city of Eleusis and is inspired by the terrible prophecy of the penultimate priest of Demeter, whose words described the terrible tide of a barbarian invasion that would sweep the sanctuary and the city itself from the face of the earth. Over the past two centuries, many dedicated archaeologists have uncovered the remains of ancient Eleusis and have painted a picture of a city that grew from a humble prehistoric settlement to a major tourist and religious destination. From the outer court of the sanctuary of Demeter, the only area accessible to the uninitiated, we will embark on a tour of Eleusis in order to discover the archaeological treasures and the human stories of a city largely unknown to the public. We will also seek the truth behind the abduction myth of Persephone and learn about the fascinating practices and ceremonies associated with the grand procession that brought the initiates from Athens to Eleusis.

Где вы побываете

From the outer court of the sanctuary of Demeter we will walk to the baths near the old port and see the ancient pier where fishermen landed their catch. We will admire the Roman aqueduct and follow the Sacred Way in the company of the boisterous initiates who walked to Eleusis from Athens. Finally, near the ruins of a Roman villa, we will read the prophecy of the last hierophant who proclaimed the destruction of Eleusis.
