Beskrivelse

This self-guided tour begins at the Kourion Archaeological Site entrance. Your first stop is the House of Eustolios, where you will learn about the ancient history of Kourion and its significance today. Next, you’ll visit the amphitheater, where thousands of people once watched theatrical and musical performances. The amazing creative writers and narration by professional voice artists will bring you back to that time together with the tour crowd.

As you continue walking through the ruins, learn about Kourion’s Golden Age, and the roles of famous figures like Alexander the Great and Ptolemy in its history, before going to the Kourion aqueducts. Then, stroll through the Agora, or “gathering place”, where bustling markets and assemblies once drew thousands of the city’s residents. Get some insight into the unique architecture of this place before continuing on to the Public Baths, once the site of lavish, heated pools where citizens relaxed and conversed with good friends. But the most impressive baths are yet to come. These, you’ll find at the Roman Nymphaeum, built of stunning white marble.

After that, visit the Gladiator House that features a mosaic depicting a gladiator battle, where you will learn the real history of gladiators as you uncover some of the facts behind the myths, before going to the House of Achilles. Then it’s on to one of the earliest Christian Basilicas, dating back to the fifth century. Finally, as you are on your way back to your starting point, learn about some other key sites to see in the city, including the Temple of Apollo. You’ll also learn about the devastating earthquake that struck Kourion and end the tour with the tale of how the city disappeared from memory for centuries before being rediscovered.
