At the Dionysos Theatre in Athens, it is sometimes necessary to remember that the world premiere of Sophocles took place here. Even more amazing is the thought that, when you visit the Pnyx, at the foot of the Acropolis, you are standing in the birthplace of democracy – exactly where the ancient Athenians voted.
While you are in the city you can also take day trips to some of the many significant sites in the immediate vicinity, including Delphi, whose ancient oracle was the most powerful woman of antiquity. For more than 1000 years, her pronouncements guided the actions of rulers and ordinary people.
