All about our
Mythology tells us that Athena herself at times also took the very form of her favorite bird. She transformed into an owl to be closer to mortal humans.
The world-famous little owl (Athene noctua) of Athena can still be seen at night-time, flying around the different hills of Athens. Our walk is a night hunt not only for the best views and the best stories but also a hunt to spot Athens’ night owls.
The Acropolis of Athens is the ancient citadel of the Athenians, a prominent plateaued rocky crag, that rises 150m high above the city. Among an amazing array of classical architecture on top of the Acropolis (mostly from the Golden Age of Athens, the 5th c. BC), stands proudly the finest of all temples dedicated to Athena: the Parthenon.

The Goddess Athena is the embodiment of reason, strategic warfare and wisdom. The patron goddess of the city of Athens.
According to myth, an owl sat on Athena’s blind side, so that she could see the whole truth. For the Greeks and the Romans, the owl, being sacred to Athena, was a symbol of higher wisdom and an embodiment of her intellectual powers.
