JEWISH HERITAGE Walking tour - Private

This private walking tour is designed for those who are interested in both the history of the Jewish community of Greece and the must-see sites of ancient and modern Athens. Begin your walking tour with a visit to the Jewish museum. This museum was founded in 1977 in order to collect and exhibit the material evidence of 2300 years of Jewish life in Greece. The collection contains more than ten thousand artefacts (some of which are unique) pertaining to the domestic and religious life, as well as the history of the Greek Jews. Continue your tour walking through the beautiful pedestrian paths of Plaka, pass by Roman market and reach Monastiraki square which is the hub of life around here and the main street leading off takes one to narrow streets with a thousand artefacts to buy and sell. Your private walking tour ends with a visit to the old Synagogue of Athens, Etz Hayyim, which was built in 1904 and is used today only during the High Holidays. Right across the street is the newer and larger Beth Shalom Sephardic synagogue, built in 1935, renovated in the 70’s, and the one fully used today. Its exterior is in white marble with neoclassical elements, while the spacious interior bears not much resemblance to the Greek tradition regarding synagogue design.
