What to expect

Step inside one of the most potent landmarks of Greece, The Temple of Olympian Zeus and enjoy a unique experience provided by a self-guided audio tour on your smartphone.

As you approach the Great Propylon, you will have the chance to listen to the story of the Great Deluge, the divine wrath that fell upon humankind on a day when Zeus felt a kind of stormy! Weaving through the enormous 17 metre-high pillars you will set on a riotous journey back in time to learn about the turbulent 700-year history of the construction of the temple and its fate throughout the centuries.

Among many other stories, you will learn about the gory bloodbath upon which the city was founded by legendary Theseus, the attempts of an Athenian tyrant and a Roman emperor to juxtapose their rule over men to the celestial power of Zeus, as well as the event of a ferocious thunderstorm that brought about terrible damages to the temple and premonitions of imminent disaster among the locals in 19th century Athens.

Finally, you will end your tour near the temple, where you will discover the relics of an ancient bathhouse and learn about the rejuvenating benefits of public baths.
