With the objective to offer different experiences to visitors, the Acropolis Museum organizes two special gastronomy and music events, on Thursday 12/5 and on Monday 16/5, on the occasion of the «This is Athens City Festival» of the Municipality of Athens.

Ancient diet and wine tasting

Wine, the gift of Dionysus! What was the relationship of the ancient Athenians with wine? How did they drink it and what did they accompany it with? But more generally, what did their diet include? Which products were local and which were imported? And what role did they play in the religious life of the city? These and many other questions are answered by the archaeologists of the Acropolis Museum in an out of the ordinary tour of its collections. A unique experience that is completed in the restaurant on the second floor with views of the Acropolis, with a meal prepared especially for the occasion accompanied by wine tasting with the support of the “Vivlia Chora” Winery.
