Discover Athens’s Jewish culture on an engaging 3-hour private tour designed for those who are interested in diving deeper into a side of the city's history that remains unseen to most tourists. After being picked up from your hotel, you'll be taken to visit the Jewish Museum of Athens, located right at the entrance of Plaka. Founded in 1977, the museum was built to collect and exhibit the material evidence of 2300 years of Jewish life in Greece.
Once the first part of the experience is over you'll head to the old Synagogue of Athens, Etz Hayyim, today only used during the High Holidays. Right across the street is the newer and larger Beth Shalom Sephardic synagogue, built in 1935, renovated in the ’70s, and still fully used today. Your guide will tell you the history behind these two buildings and the heritage of their community; they'll be happy to answer any question you might have.
At the end of your tour, you'll comfortably right back to your hotel.
