In our series of discovering the countries where Record go Mobility is located, we approach Greece through some of its most emblematic monuments.
Get to know Greece through… Its monuments
Delphi: The Oracle of Apollo
Our journey begins at Delphi, the site of one of the most famous oracles of ancient Greece. Surrounded by impressive mountains and a rugged landscape, Delphi is a place of natural and spiritual beauty. Here, you can explore the Temple of Apollo, where the ancient Greeks went to seek answers to their most important questions. Enjoy breathtaking panoramic views of the Gulf of Corinth from the top and marvel at the Theatre of Delphi, an ancient amphitheatre with exceptional acoustics.
Meteora: Monasteries on High
From Delphi, we head to Meteora, a gravity-defying architectural marvel. Here, Christian monasteries sit atop sandstone pillars soaring skyward. The majesty of the monasteries suspended in the air is a sight you will never forget. You can visit some of these monasteries, explore their frescoes and feel the serenity of this unique place in the world.
Acropolis of Athens: The Jewel of the City
Our next destination is the Acropolis of Athens, an emblem of Greek civilisation. Here, you will immerse yourself in the grandeur of ancient Athens as you explore the Parthenon, the Erechtheion and the Temple of Athena Nike. The Acropolis will offer you a panoramic view of the modern city of Athens and take you back in time to appreciate the splendour of ancient Greece.
Epidaurus Theatre: Echoes of Antiquity
Leaving Athens, we head to the Epidaurus Theatre, an architectural gem that has endured through the centuries. This ancient theatre is famous for its amazing acoustics and its capacity to hold thousands of spectators. Although the original building dates back to the 4th century BC, the theatre is still an impressive venue for performances even today – imagine yourself enjoying a play or concert on this historic stage!
Parthenon: The Heart of Athens
Our tour culminates at the Parthenon, Greece’s most iconic monument and a symbol of democracy and Western culture. Located on the Acropolis of Athens, this temple dedicated to Athena is a testament to the architectural mastery of ancient Greece.
