For those who wish to visit the Acropolis before heading North to Samothrace, a morning walking tour will be offered with philosopher Stanley Sfekas. This is highly recommended for those who have never visited Greece before. The Acropolis has a unique capacity to convey a powerful sense of beauty and wisdom of classical culture.
