This site was part of my combined ticket, and I had already joined the online philosophy workshop of Hellas Revival for Aristotle, so I had to come and see it. You can imagine yourself as Aristotle’s student walking with him here. I just wish Covid was over and I could join the live workshop here.

My wife and I had a great experience, as we learnt about Aristotle and his theory on how to live a good life and we practiced it with simple case studies of modern life and also with own examples. The fact that we walked on the same ground Aristotle and his students walked and philosophized just like they did 2500years ago was absolutely inspiring besides educational and joyful. Plus the entrance is just 3EUROS

We had the 30 euro pass so this was free. Mildly interesting but not a great deal of information. Other sites were very good with info boards. It was a pleasant walk, and there was a sculpture show next door, so enjoyed it but wouldn't make a special trip to go there.

It took us a while to find as part of our combined ticket, but so delighted we came. Fairly recent discovery when an army barracks was dismantled in just mid 90s. With a bit of imagination you can put yourself back to the times when Aristotle and Socrates would have been thinking big thoughts under a tree here! Also a gymnasium and maybe the first University, you can imagine the philosophical debate happening here as well as the wrestling and boxing that took place. Some of the narrow paths are blocked off now in the pandemic, as is the cafe and most of the garden, but even so, one if our favourite sites to visit.

It was interesting to learn that this famous place of scholarship from antiquity was excavated only in 1996 during preparatory works for a new Modern Art Museum. In the lovely early spring afternoon and under cloudless skies of azure it was grand strolling around it. Albeit only a few aspects of foundations are to be seen today, it is still evocative as it has the footsteps of one of the greatest ever philosophers and polymaths. It is also referred to as the Peripatetic School, as it is thought that Aristotle strolled amongst the verdant groves while discussing scholarship with his students.
