An engaging self-guided audio tour for the Olympieion that can be used as a walking tour guide on tablets & smartphone devices. Long before Athena claimed the city for herself, an exhausted Greek decided to build a temple to express his gratitude to Zeus for saving his life from the Great Flood. The project became a 600-year-long quest to pay a great debt to the king of the gods. *Ticket / entrance fee to the archaeological site of the Olympieion is not included!

“The great debt: the Olympieion, Athens”
is a tour literally inundated in myth and stories about the great tyrants, kings, emperors, and architects that struggled for six centuries to complete one of the largest temples ever built in ancient Greece. As you first approach the Great Propylon, you will learn all about the Great Flood that Zeus unleashed when a king of the Bronze Race served him a nice pot of his own son. Then, as you stand in the shade of the majestic columns at the SE corner of the temple you can try to understand the sense of awe felt by emperors and common people who witnessed this forest of marble rising from the ground to the heavens above. The nondescript lines of stones on the terrace south of the temple are steeped in mythology. Theseus, the legendary hero of Athens, proved here that he was no innocent marriageable virgin. At the NW corner you can muse on the vanity of all human endeavour. After all there are only 15 columns left standing where once there were 104. Finally, you have a wonderful chance to learn about the passion of ancient Athenians and Romans for baths, whether hot or cold, in the old balaneion. Many philosophers spent time and effort in the bath and when you are in Athens you might as well do as the Athenians did.

To take this self-guided tour you will need the app on your iOS or Android device.
