Excursions Portugal by Musement

Seville Cultural

Home to some of Spain’s most important monuments, Seville is a must-visit. The spotlight shines on, among others, the bullring, cathedral and Plaza España. This is one of our TUI Collection excursions, which give you a local flavour of the destination while showcasing its unique, authentic and responsible values.

You’ll strike out early for the Andalusian capital, leaving plenty of time to explore some of its cultural and architectural highlights. Drive by its legendary Maestranza bullring, its twelve-sided Torre de Oro and the colonnaded Plaza de España – of Star Wars fame. And no trip to Seville would be complete without taking in the awe-inspiring Gothic cathedral and the Giralda tower, so that’s on the list, too.

Then it’s off to wander the former Jewish quarter of Santa Cruz, lined with orange trees, pretty plazas and cool patios. And before heading back, you’ll have some free time to explore on your own and grab a tapas lunch – and maybe a souvenir or two.

Zoomarine Ticket Only

Enjoy a day at Zoomarine, Portugal’s only animal and marine park, with this great value ticket-only trip. Getting to and from the park under your own steam, you’ll be free to spend as long you like enjoying the attractions.

Top billing goes to the dolphin shows, where you’ll watch these frisky mammals perform feats and tricks in their pool. And if you’re up for more aquatic action afterwards, there are also the sea lion shows, water birds and an aquarium, too. Then peer into the alligator compound or watch a bird of prey exhibition, gazing into the skies as falcons and eagles swoop through the air.

When you want something different, have lunch at one of the restaurants or while away your time sunbathing on the lawns, splashing in the pool or braving the amusement rides. There’s a big wheel, flume and pirate ship to keep the kids happy while you chill.

4×4 Safari and Benagil Caves

There are two way to explore the Algarve’s country and coast, and this tour combines them both – 4×4 and boat. You’ll off-road through the Serra Caldeirão in the morning, taking in villages, valleys and flora, then hop on a boat to Benagil Caves with a wine tasting stop in between.

We’ll kick off this full day tour with some thrilling off-road driving along the edge of the valleys, up the hills and through the lowlands of Serra Caldeirão. En route, you’ll be told about the area’s flora, fauna and culture, and you’ll get to stretch your legs with breaks to taste marmalades, learn about cork trees and taste some wine at Quinta dos Arcos.

Then, it’s on to the boat to trundle along the Algarve coastline towards Benagil Caves where you’ll drop anchor for a swim and the chance to look for wildlife. These caves are only reached by water, and their spectacular rock formations – with a hole through the roof – will have you reaching for your camera.

Ophelia Catamaran Tour for Adults – with Transfer

Bizarre rock formations chiselled by the Atlantic winds over time are just a few of the sights you’ll see during this adult-only catamaran cruise. With the wind behind you, you’ll explore the coves, grottoes, beaches and fishing villages of the Algarve on a relaxing full day boat trip with transport.

You’ll sail from Portimao by the fishing village of Ferragudo, a fantastical landscape of strangely shaped grottoes, natural rock channels, caves and stunning rock formations that have been sculpted by the seas over thousands of years. Smaller boats will take you to the grottoes of Algar Seco and as the sun filters through the holes and fissures in the caves and rocks, it creates a magical reflective effect on the water.

And then, while the crew prepares a delicious barbecue lunch on board you can soak up the sun on deck or cool off in the inviting water – it really is beautifully clear. Finally, you’ll anchor in a bay and you’ll be transported to the beach where you can do some snorkelling, play a bit of frisbee or volleyball, or simply relax on the sand.

Seville City Tour & Shopping

As the heart and soul of Andalusia, Seville makes for a mesmerising daytrip. You’ll explore the city’s cobbled streets, secret patios and colossal cathedral on a panoramic bus tour. There’ll also be free time to indulge in some shopping.

Once we arrive, you’ll have ample opportunity to discover its world-class monuments on a bus tour to snap some photos of the Maestranza bullring, the Torre de Oro and the grand, colonnaded Plaza de España.

Plus, you’ll be able to take a closer look at the impressive Gothic cathedral and amble around Santa Cruz – the old Jewish district. Here you’ll find lanes laced with pretty plazas, orange trees and patios. Afterwards, you’ll have some free time for lunch and a spot of shopping.

When you need to take a breather, there are loads of other activities at the park too. There’s the birds of prey and parrot shows, alongside a reptile show with snakes and iguanas. It’s a great day out.

Seeing dolphins in their natural habitat is one of life’s special experiences. Observe these fascinating and friendly creatures on this cruise down Portugal’s sunny, south coast. Welcomed aboard by the crew, you’ll set sail from Portimao harbour. Passing caves, coves and beaches, your knowledgeable skipper knows just where to head. Both bottlenose and common dolphins call this place home and they just love to show off. A captivating Algarve experience.

OPHELIA DOLPHINS & CAVES

POSTCARDS OF VICENTINE COAST

Wedged between the waves of the Atlantic and the Monchique Mountains, the Vicentine Coast has stunning landscapes, lots of flora and fauna but very few people. This is a wild world where you least expect it. Highlights include Costa Vicentina Natural Park, Carrapateira and Sagres.

You’ll head to Aljezur, in the very heart of Costa Vicentina Natural Park, and then through lush landscapes to Carrapateira. Here, the views over the dunes are a sight to behold. Next, drive towards the Atlantic and hug the coastline taking in views of tall schist cliffs and strands flanked by huge rocks. Break for lunch in a beachfront restaurant and savour a shellfish cataplana – the Algarve’s signature dish.

After lunch, head to Cape St Vincent – the most southwesterly point in Europe – where the cliffs rise 75 metres from the sea. Your adventure has one final stop at Sagres, a tiny fishing harbour with a big history. It was here that Prince Henry the Navigator planned his voyages of discovery.

Mallorca guided tour with lunch and transport

The true beauty of Mallorca is actually hidden to most tourists, who spend all their time on the busy beaches that everyone knows. Instead of following the crowds, we’re keeping it super-local on this Mallorca tour that shows you where to find the real beauty that only locals know.

We’ll meet in town, then take a comfortable local bus to reach the beginning of our walk. From there, the trail we’ll follow is a historical path, once used by postmen to go from one village to another. As we walk, we’ll learn about native Mediterranean plants, and stop to admire the panoramic view from a mountaintop. We’ll land in the historical village of Serra Tramuntana.

We’ll then arrive at a hidden beach – well, hidden to the tourists, that is! Locals love to go here, and we’ll join them as we soak up the sun and sea, and dig into a delicious lunch of typical Mallorcan food and drinks, such as empanadas and cocas de trampò. We’ll also dig into some delicious desserts such as ensaimada or gatò with almonds… delicious!

In the summer months, you can work off your lunch with a dip in the sea; in winter, just lie out in the sun and soak up that easy Mediterranean vibe.

In the afternoon, we’ll again board the local bus to take us back into Palma, where you’re free to explore on your own.

Note that this walk is fairly easy and along a marked trail. The walk will take about three hours (including stops), with elevations of 300 metres up and almost 400 metres down.

Three of eastern Majorca’s most colourful attractions are on the menu in this full day excursion. You’ll visit a popular farmers’ market, one of Mallorca’s famous stalactite-filled caves and a pearl factory.

It all kicks off with a trip to a traditional farmer’s market – a tradition going back to the Middle Ages – which brings together farmers, craftsmen and would-be buyers of fresh produce and leather goods. Expect noise. Expect colour. And expect scents – from aromatic herbs to pungent cheeses. This is Majorca in its purest form.

Next up, we’ll head to one of Mallorca’s dramatic cave systems. With underwater lakes, a concert on water and stalagmites and stalactites it’s as though they’ve come straight out of a movie.

Mallorca from sky to sea walking tour with lunch

The true beauty of Mallorca is actually hidden to most tourists, who spend all their time on the busy beaches. This tour shows you where to find the real beauty that only locals know. You’ll trek out to a unique corner of the island, far beyond the massive beaches of the south.

You’ll take a comfortable local bus from the town to reach the beginning of the walk. From there, the trail you’ll follow is a historical path, once used by postmen to go from one village to another. During the walk, you’ll learn about native Mediterranean plants, and stop to admire the panoramic view from a mountaintop.

This walk is fairly easy and along a marked trail. The walk will take about three hours (including stops), with elevations of 300 metres up and almost 400 metres down.

Mallorca from sky to sea walking tour with lunch

Spanish lesson and guided tour with breakfast in Mallorca

This Mallorca tour is an adventure in language, culture, and food (all the things we love about travel, really). Instead of sitting in a stuffy classroom, we’re going to practice our Spanish skills over a hearty breakfast on the island of Mallorca. We’ll gain a better understanding for how the Spanish language influences how locals think and live. Find out the difference between uro and ido, and learn when it’s the right time to let your Batuadell or Cagondell phrases fly.

We’ll meet at the Saint Francisco Church, then walk to a historic bar in the city centre. How old is this bar? Well, locals have loved this place since the 1700s. The bar feels almost magical inside, and is a pleasure year-round — in the summer, locals come to enjoy ice cream or horchata, while winter visitors order up hot chocolate and ensaimada cakes.

In this cosy spot, we’ll enjoy a cultural breakfast and share some key Spanish words that will help you to better understand the local culture and lifestyle. The experience will be very informal and interactive — more like a conversation with friends than a lesson. We’ll share cultural stories and you’ll walk away knowing the good, the bad, and everything in between about Mallorca and Mallorcan culture!

You may fear that you won’t learn much in such a short experience, but don’t worry, we’ll help you to keep practicing at home, too. After our session, we’ll bid adeu (not adios) and you’ll get your own Spanish book that you can bring home with you as a souvenir.

Hams Caves

Ten million years in the making, the Hams Caves were worth the wait. More than just a cool place to escape Majorca’s summer heat, this system boasts three caverns – each offering a different visual experience. Located just outside Porto Cristo in the east of the island, the Hams Caves make for an ideal family outing.

Despite their millennial age, the Coves del Hams, as they are known locally, were only discovered in 1905. Visit the Round Cave, a vast open cavern that’s straight out of Jurassic Park. It has a botanical garden and its microclimate attracts many species of birds.

Then there’s the Classic Cave. Made up of 12 galleries and an underground lake, which is where the Sea of Venice musical show is presented. And there’s the Blue Cave, which all TUI guests visit. State-of-the-art lighting has brought it to life, and there’s an auditorium, where you can watch the Discovering the Past documentary. Insta-perfect spots include ‘Samson’s Pillars’ and the ‘Pit of Hell’.

Hams Caves

Take the 2-hour morning trip and you’ll enjoy a laid-back trot through a protected nature reserve to canter along the beaches of Majorca’s northern shores. With the evening option, you can hop on a horse for a sunset trail ride through the untouched fields and woods around the ranch or take a horse-drawn wagon tour complete with free-flowing sangria and live music as you go.

Back at the ranch, it’s time for a tasty barbecue feast followed by the chance to release your inner cowboy or cowgirl with some line dancing. There’s also a bucking bronco competition, pony rides, a bouncy castle and a mini-zoo for the kids. It’s good old fashioned Wild West fun.

A cruise in which you play a big part in ensuring everything goes swimmingly. The Caribia sailboat charter offers you a hands-on experience as you cruise the southeast coast of Majorca. You’ll be able to help with the sails and even steer the boat before diving into the inviting waters. The cruise is available in either half or full day format, with snacks or lunch aboard.

Sailing out of the beautiful harbour of Portocolom, you’ll glide past secluded coves and rugged cliffs. Capacity on the boats is limited to 10 guests, enhancing the sense of exclusivity. Your skipper will offer you the chance to unfurl sails, change tack and even take charge of the helm – a really special feeling. Relaxing on board is also an option.

And when the captain drops anchor in a gorgeous cove, you’ll be able to dive off the boat for a swim or snorkel in the crystal clear waters. This is what being on holidays is all about.

Caribia sailing charter

Trekking & Boat

This trip invites you to enjoy Majorca’s great outdoors. In a double dose of adventure, you’ll combine cruising in a traditional wooden boat with a gentle hike through the hills and unspoiled landscapes of the island. And after soaking up some spectacular scenery, you’ll round off with a well-earned swim in a secluded bay.

Escaping the hustle and bustle of the beach resorts, you’ll hop on a traditional wooden llaüt boat and cast off into the Med.

Bioparc Valencia is a unique zoo. Its design employs the ‘zooimmersion’ concept, in which visitors are surrounded by meticulous recreations of the natural habitats being presented. Social animals that live together in groups are displayed, as well as groups of different species that coexist in the same habitats. Predatory species are integrated into the visual space but are separated from other species by barriers invisible to the eye of the visitor, ensuring the safety of both the animals and the people. The animals, vegetation and landscape provide opportunities for discovering the complexity of natural ecosystems.

Visitors may begin their voyage through the African realm of Bioparc Valencia by traveling deep into the Savannah, among herds of antelope, giraffe and rhinoceros; while lions overlook the great plain from their rocky heights. You will be able to see hyenas and warthogs as well as the vast wonders of underground life such as aardvark burrows, naked mole-rat nests and termite mounds. Visitors will then venture into the dense equatorial forest in search of gorillas, surrounded by red forest buffalos and leopards.

Mestalla Stadium guided visit

This is your last chance to experience Mestalla, the home of Valencia Fútbol Club and the oldest stadium in Spain. The stadium opened on 20 May 1923 where a friendly match took place between Valencia and Levante. It could initially hold 17,000 fans, but was quickly expanded to a capacity of 25,000.

In the 1970s, Valencia considered moving to a new stadium on the edge of the city, but instead decided to redevelop Mestalla, which was made necessary by the upcoming 1982 World Cup. Works included the reconstruction of the bottom tier, which until then still consisted of a brick structure and was replaced by a concrete one. The stadium remained the same for the next fifteen years. It underwent its last redevelopment between 1997 and 2001, when both ends and one side got expanded with an extra tier, and new access towers were built in the corners.

This guided tour guides will share passionate insights into Valencia’s illustrious past with access to areas normally reserved for players and officials. See the press room and the players’ dressing room, and walk the tunnel to the roar of a capacity crowd.

A visit for everyone and anyone, from all corners of the world!

Live flamenco show with tapas dinner

Taste of Almeria

You’ll feel like you’re a million miles away from the beaches, as you head inland and discover the secrets of Almeria. Drive past rolling hills covered with vineyards to Cortijo del Cura and through the Sierra de Gádor to a typical village for a tapa tasting. This is one of our TUI Collection excursions, which give you a local flavour of the destination while showcasing its unique, authentic and responsible values.

At Cortijo del Cura – the province’s first organic winery– the owner will proudly tell you about the wines, which are made using completely organic products and processes. Have a wander around the peaceful orchards and take a peek in the museum before tasting some of the wines and other local products.

This scenic tour then continues through the Sierra de Gádor – a stunning backdrop for photos. You’ll also learn all about little Spanish dishes known as tapas and enjoy a taste first-hand when you call in at a local village.

Taste of Almeria

Sierra Nevada

A chance to see the ‘other Andalusia’ in the highlands of the Sierra Nevada. You’ll drive past rocky outcrops, olive groves, almond and cork trees and cultivated farmland with stops in Puerto La Ragua and Guadix. This is one of our TUI Collection excursions, which give you a local flavour of the destination while showcasing its unique, authentic and responsible values.

At Puerto La Ragua, there’ll be a stop and a short walk through the pine trees, in a peaceful nature reserve. Then in the foothills, head past shark fin-shaped peaks to Guadix – it’s the picture of a fantastical town that’s jumped out of the pages of The Hobbit. You’ll notice chimneys sprouting from the hills and mysterious whitewashed doorways leading into the mountainsides – and get to see inside one of these unusual cave dwellers’ homes.

You’ll also get a feel for the traditional lives of the locals when you stop at an earthenware shop – see hand-painted ceramics and watch a pottery-making demonstration.

Sierra Nevada

Mojacar with boat

This tour combines two of the Almeria’s top attractions – the Cabo de Gata Nature Reserve and the historic hilltop village of Mojacar. You’ll cruise off the coast of the Cabo de Gata and then head by coach to Mojacar, one of the prettiest pueblos in eastern Andalusia.

Sailing from the port of Carboneras, the boat trip offers great views of Cabo de Gata – the largest protected coastal area in Spain. Pass hidden coves, imposing cliffs and pretty beaches while nursing a complimentary drink on board. You’ll also see the enticingly beautiful Playa de los Muertos – though it means ‘Beach of the Dead’, it’s more a case of a beach to die for.

Then it’s time for Mojacar itself. A guided tour will give you the lowdown on its long history – it’s believed to have been settled some 4,000 years ago – as you wander through winding alleys of whitewashed homes. See the Moorish fountain, city gate, St Mary’s church and more during a pleasant stroll through the village. And on the return journey, you’ll pass through the impressive Tabernas desert.

Mojacar with boat

Mojacar

If it’s a typical Spanish ‘pueblo’ that you’re after, then Mojacar’s your town. You’ll cross some pretty Wild West-looking scenery on your way, heading across the Tabernas desert. And you won’t be disappointed when you get there – the town is made of white, sugar-cubed houses that tumble down the rocky hillside. There’s also a visit to a coastal fishing village.

Mojacar’s a tangle of cobbled streets which are lined with quaint shops and cute cafés and there are plenty of Moorish leftovers to admire including a spring water fountain and flower-filled terraces.

Then take a trip to a typical coastal village. Head over to the beach for a dip or you can wander along the beautiful promenade.

Mojacar

Oasys MiniHollywood

The Good, the Bad and the Ugly have all blown through with the tumbleweed in Oasys MiniHollywood. Anthony Quinn, Sean Connery and Brigitte Bardot all ‘got the T-shirt’. Even Clint Eastwood scuffed the dusty streets in spaghetti western, A Fistful of Dollars.

And now his cigar-chomping hero is replaced by rootin’-tootin’ cowboy stunt shows that’ll have you gunning for more. Once a Hollywood movie paradise and based around an old Wild West town film set, this theme park puts on exciting shoot-outs, can-can shows and stunt riding, recreating legendary scenes in cinema history all with a beautiful desert backdrop.

Once the show’s over, there’s a miniature zoo with more than 800 animals from 200 different species, located in among lush vegetation of over 400 trees. It’s interesting stuff, as the centre supports an educational, research and conservation programme. Plus if you wish, you can take a dip in one of the pools, refuel in the restaurant or poke around one of the souvenir shops.

Oasys MiniHollywood

Nerja and Frigiliana Tour

Considered one of the most picturesque parts of the Costa del Sol, Nerja and nearby Frigiliana evoke the Andalusia of yesteryear. You’ll venture along the rocky coast towards the whitewashed village of Frigiliana before reaching Nerja and its famous Balcony of Europe. Topping off the tour is a visit to a botanical garden.

Frigiliana is a mainstay on lists of Spain’s most beautiful villages, and the drive from Almeria is also a sight to behold. You’ll head inland to the foothills of the Almijara Mountains to explore this typical whitewashed village. Amble along the hilly streets of the old town and browse the handicraft shops.

Then, it’s down to Nerja on the coast. Unusually for a seaside resort, it has retained a typical Andalusian appearance and atmosphere. You’ll have free time to poke around shops and cafés, and stop at Balcony of Europe to view the cove-strewn coastline. Finally, we’ll swing by a beautiful botanical garden before the journey back to your hotel.

Nerja and Frigiliana Tour

Tabernas desert from Leone to Spielberg the route of the stars

The Tabernas desert is considered one of the only true desert in Europe. 12.000 hectares protected enclosing a sedimentary eroded landscape, with average annual sunshine about more than 3,000 hours and below 250 mm rainfall per year. When Mediterranean’s sea covered the area of Tabernas and after millions of years to more than 500 meters depth, in times when the coastline was located at the foot of the Sierra de Los Filabres, several tectonic movements caused the gradual lifting of the sedimentary basin, settling the current landscape by erosion and over time.

During the route, you stop at all the micro landscapes which conform the desert as if it were a movie making reference to its geology, its vital features as well as its importance in the history of cinema past and present. Iconic films have been shot at this area as “Lawrence of Arabia”, “For a few dollars more,” “Indiana Jones”, “Patton” or “Millenium”.

Along the 4×4 route, the guide will stop to explain to you the most relevant geologic’s freaks, the history and the environmental aspects of this unique place.

Side by night

All Roman ruins and great sea views, the peninsula town of Side is one of the must-sees in this corner of Turkey. What makes it doubly appealing is that its archaeological relics are randomly scattered around the old town.

An evening visit is the ideal way to combine some sightseeing and dinner. By arriving during the early evening you can check out Side’s showpiece – the Temple of Apollo. Perched on the end of the peninsula, it’s said that Antony and Cleopatra held love trysts under its shining white columns. And you’ll see it at the best time of day – sunset. When the sun has dropped below the horizon, you’ll have some free time on your own to look round.

Check out the other ruins or delve into the old town whose grid-like streets are stuffed with stone houses, shops and bazaars. After this, you’ll end your evening at a harbour-side restaurant where you can tuck into an included two-course dinner.

As you sail out of the harbour, sit back, relax and listen to the waves as you glide out to sea. You can chill out on the main deck and soak up the sun with a drink in hand and, when the captain drops anchor, jump in for a refreshing swim. A fresh and tasty lunch is served on board and, with all local drinks included, you can keep the cocktails coming.

In the afternoon there’ll be a couple more swim stops – bring a snorkel and mask to really make the most of the clear waters. Then it’s time to party. Banging tunes and lots of foam make for a full-on boat party atmosphere so you can dance and sing all the way back to dry land.

Despite these pitfalls, the Ring became an important place to see, and be seen, in Vienna. People visited it often after its completion, prompting the construction of several cafes and restaurants along the boulevard. Your guide will take you to Cafe Schwarzenberg to show you the thriving cafe culture of late 19th-century Vienna.

Schönbrunn Palace guided tour with a historian

We begin our encounter with the astonishing High Baroque Schönbrunn Palace (built to rival Versailles) with a stroll through the magnificent formal gardens, exploring the Baroque landscaping principle of interlaced nature and architecture that is illustrated everywhere in the layout of the grounds. Approaching the Gloriette, a huge triumphal arch situated on a hilltop with
panoramic views of Vienna’s woods, we recall the military victories that made Empress Maria Theresa’s reign (1740-1780) a highpoint of the Hapsburg dynasty’s political and cultural dominance in Europe. The park was opened not only to the court but to the general public from 1779, a populist gesture that reveals Maria Theresa’s canny charm offensive towards her subjects.

For example, Maria Theresa’s music room was the setting of acoustical delights attended by the imperial family in a glittering Rococo ambiance of gilt mirrors and lavish chandeliers. The six year old Mozart performed here for the family. The Hapsburgs’ devotion to the development of classical music did not end at their support of brilliant professional composers; many of the children were trained themselves as advanced musicians and expected to exhibit their skills in private entertainments held in this space. The Empress herself acted in plays in the private theatre.

The unique “Millions Room” owes its name to a fabulous price in gold ducats paid for it: antiquated Indo-Persian miniatures with rococo-frames, wall hangings manufactured of carved rosewood from the Antilles make the “Millions chamber” one of the most accomplished combinations of Oriental and European decorative art from the Rococo era.

Your tour will start with two of the enormous Art Deco public housing properties on the edge of the city. 60,000 new units were built from 1925 to 1934, designed to be perfect little worlds for housing with public facilities such as common baths, public squares, and communal green areas. The areas were also meant to contain shops, libraries, theaters, kindergartens, medical clinics, laundromats, and political clubs.

One of these areas is Karl Marx-Hof. One of the largest estates, it was called the Ringstrasse of the Proletariat. A quick metro ride away is the second estate on the tour, the Reumannhof.

With the help of your guide, you’ll spend a full day learning its amazing history and uncovering all its secrets.

The first stop of your tour of Ancient Messene will be the village Mauromati, where you’ll be told the legend that reveals the its name. You’ll be amazed by the structures of the city’s fortification wall and the only surviving entrance gate to the ancient city: they’ve been standing there since 369 BC. You’ll enter through the Arcadian Gate and you’ll admire its splendor; try to imagine how it felt to be a Messenian warrior going to battle.
When you finish the tour inside the archaeological site, your guide will be waiting with cool water, ready to answer all your questions before ending your trip with a visit to the small Archaeological Museum.

Trip to the Acropolis and Plaka district

 

Board your vehicle for the approximately 40-minute scenic drive into the heart of Athens, the famous Acropolis. Your tour will pass through many of Plaka district’s major sites, including Hadrian’s Arch, the statue of Lord Byron, the Temple of Olympian Zeus, Constitution Square, the former Royal Palace, the National Gardens, the Academy, and the University Library.
The Acropolis dominates the Athenian landscape and your guided walking tour will reveal the wonders of the ancient ruins and the stories behind each of the landmarks. You’ll begin by climbing the 80 steep steps through the Propylaea, the monumental marble gateway to the Acropolis. Once at the top, you’ll be rewarded with a spectacular view of the city below.
On the highest point of the Acropolis stands the Parthenon, one of the greatest monuments of ancient civilization and the perfect representation of Doric-style architecture. On the north side of the Acropolis stands the Erectheion, a sacred site is where it was once decided which God would rule the city. When Poseidon thrust his trident into the ground, water burst forth, but when Athena touched the ground with her spear and an olive tree grew, she was named ruler of the city. On the south side of the building, you’ll then discover the Porch of the Caryatids, or Porch of the Maidens, your last stop before the end of the tour: the graceful sculptures are engineered to support the weight of the roof on the slender neck of each female figure. Legend has it that when Lord Elgin removed one of the original statues to decorate his Scottish mansion, the remaining stone maidens could be heard crying in the night.
