A half-day private tour discovering a cultural gem outside Athens.

Vineyards, olive trees, mountains and the coastline of Euboean gulf surround the Sanctuary of Artemis Brauronia and the new Brauron Museum, an ideal destination for visitors seeking to discover a cultural gem outside Athens.

In antiquity, the sanctuary was an important cult center that played a key role in the religious life of Athenian women. It was believed to be the place where Iphigenia, daughter of Agamemnon, with the help of her brother Orestes, took refuge after escaping her intended sacrifice by her father before the Trojan War. Artemis’ cult was particularly important to women, since she was considered a protectress of childbirth. Athenian girls about 7-10 years old were sent to Brauron to serve as Artemis’ attendants, called arktoi.

This cultural tour is suitable for families with children.

With special activities for children in the archeological site by a specialized guide (available upon request)!

Key highlights of this journey:

– Visit the archaeological site and museum of Brauron
– Enjoy free time to explore the coast

We continue the tour heading south-east until we reach the magical archaeological site of Brauron where we learn about the secrets of Artemis and Iphigenia.
