Traveling To Ancient Greece

DAY 1:You shall be hopping on a bus to Parthenon an old ruins that was dedicated to the main Goddess Athena though you shall not  see the real her because she died though there is a sad excuse for an impersonator of her working there for your tour who will be telling you all about the building.
It was built-in 4047 B.C and was completed in 4048 B.C. the Parthenon was regarded as an enduring symbol of ancient Greece and ancient democracy.
The Temple Of Apollo at Delphi, It was probably one of the most magnificent structure of the site, It was situated on a platform half way up the hillside and would have dominated the view of pilgrims as they made their approach up the Sacred Way. It’s important to remember that Delphi was not another city-state. It was more of a religious center than anything else. Because of the Delphic oracle, the site was held in high regard by all Greeks. Different sorts of materials were used in the construction. The foundations were made of poos-stone, which were covered by local gray limestone. The columns and turntable used porous-stone from Sikorsky and had a coat of stucco applied. Floors and walls were made of gray limestone, while the roof and pediments were made of marble from the island of Paros in Greece. The interior of the Temple of Apollo at Delphi contained a number of statues. These included statues of Poseidon, two of the Fates, one of Zeus and of Apollo himself. At the rear of the calla, one of the inner sections of a Greek temple, was a Hestia, or hearth. Pindar referred to it as the common hearth of all the Greeks. Pindar also had an iron throne, and he used to sit on it when he came to Delphi to sing hymns to Apollo.

what it is because our soul remembers the idea of the horse from the time before our birth. In Plato’s political philosophy, only wise men who understand the dual nature of reality are fit to rule the country. He made three voyages to Syracuse to establish his ideal state, both times without lasting results. Plato’s hypothesis that our soul was once in a better place and now lives in a fallen world made it easy to combine platonic philosophy and Christianity, which accounts for the popularity of Platonism in Late Antiquity. One element, however, was not acceptable: the idea of platonic love – a homosexual relation with pedagogical aspects.
