Description

Explore the town of Eleusis and learn about the secret Grecian religious rites known as the Eleusinian Mysteries that were held there. Roundtrip transportation in a comfortable, Wi-Fi-equipped taxi cab makes your experience relaxing and free of hassle.

After you're picked up from either your hotel or the cruise port, enjoy the use of Wi-Fi on the way to Eleusis. As you explore the ancient city's streets and ruins, your guide shares insight into the cult of Demeter and Persephone, which existed before the Greeks even arrived in the area. Learn about the Eleusinian Mysteries—annual initiations held by the cult that involved a mysterious sacred box, the contents of which are still unknown to this day.

Make your way to the archaeological site of Eleusis and see the Sacred Court, which contains shrines to Artemis and other Greek goddesses. Get a look at the ruins of halls where rituals took place, and a sanctuary that only the cult's high priest was allowed to enter. After seeing the place where a cave where the god Pluto appeared to take Persephone away to live him in the Underworld, your tour ends with a ride back to Athens.

The driver was on time, the vehicle very clean. He provided useful commentary throughout our brief trip to one of the more obscure classical Greek sites, Eleusis. I would certainly use this service again if I needed a day tour in or around Athens.
