Our first stop for photos will be in Keadas. There, you will learn everything about the black page of Sparta’s history, as you will be witnesses of the spot where Ancient Spartan threw their newborn sick children, so as not to allow these genes alter their proud and perfectionist race. Modern Sparta was built exactly in the same location as the ancient city. Its origins are placed on October 20, 1834, when King Otto signed the edict for the construction of the new town. The ancient site that we will visit afterwards, will astound you. The Acropolis of Ancient Sparta and its monuments are still standing there from the sixth century BC, in defiance of all the centuries that gone by. We will see the Ancient Theater, the Temple of Chalkioikos Athena, the circular building, the remains of the stores of ancient Agora, a Persian Gallery and so many more. You will have the information for each monument that we will see, and for all the events of everyday’s life of Ancient Spartans and their kings. Leaving the Acropolis, we will visit the "Tomb of Leonidas," the most famous king of ancient Sparta.

We will learn how our ancestors collected the Olive fruits and the technological evolution acquired over the years. After all this information and knowledge, you will probably be exhausted and hungry. Mediterranean traditional dishes at local restaurants will be waiting for us. If you prefer swimming, we can immediately return to your hotel so as to enjoy the sea in the afternoon! Believe us… it is going to be an experience that you will never forget!
