Saint Paul in Athens
During this tour, a guide will take you to some of the places the Apostle Paul also visited during his stay in Athens. And you visit the churches of Dionysius the Areopagite, he got baptisted by Saint Paul and he is the patron saint of the city of Athens.
In 51 Saint Paul, somehow by coincidence, ends up in Athens.
We visit some of the places he visited during this stay in the city. The guide will tell you about life in Athens those days. Of course you will visit to the Areopagus, the rock from where Paul spoke to the Athenians.
In Athens only a few people were baptized by Paul. The most wellknown one is Dionysios the Areopagite. He was one of the judges of the Areopagus and he became the patron saint of Athens, which he still is.
You will visit the Catholic cathedral dedicated to Dionysios and the Orthodox Dionysius church, one of the most important churches in the city. This large church is decorated with beautiful mosaics.
