Delve into the treasures of Byzantine art and culture as your private guide takes you back in time. Explore the Byzantine and Christian Museum, stroll through Plaka, admire some of the 40,000 relics at the Benaki Museum, and visit the 11th-century Kaisariani Monastery.

Head to the Byzantine and Christian Museum. Hear about unique artifacts as you admire rare collections of pictures, frescoes, scriptures, pottery, and manuscripts from the 3rd century to the 16th century AD.

Then it's time to explore the renowned Benaki Museum, where you can see more than 40,000 items that illustrate Greek culture throughout history, from the Roman age to the Middle Ages. Your guide explains various periods to you, from the fall of Constantinople in 1453 to the struggle for independence in 1821, as well as the formation of the modern Greece in 1830.

Take a stroll through picturesque Plaka to see how locals go about their day-to-day lives, and then continue to the Kaisariani Monastery. Hear about this building's construction and how it was built above the ruins of an ancient temple.
