Athens, Greece Skin Courses
Athens is a city lush with ancient history and wonderful architecture. With everything from crumbling temples to the UNESCO preserved Acropolis and a food culture all it’s own while you’re enrolled in Athens facial courses you will never run out of places to see and explore.
In between your Athens facial courses, step back in time by visiting some of Greece’s most famous landmarks conveniently located in and around Athens. You will be brought back through the ages while visiting places like Hadrian’s Arch. This monumental marble arch is 18 meters high, 12.5 meters high and 2.3 meters deep and was erected around the second century AD, was built to honor the Roman emperor Hadrian, most likely before his visit to Athens in 131 AD. The arch used to span an ancient road which led from the city center to the Olympieion, and with inscriptions on either side of the arch dictating where Athens was and wasn’t its assumed that the arch also acted as a divider, separating old Athens from Hadrian’s “New Athens.”
Another place of interest that you must make time to see is the Agora. This ancient “gathering place” was once the heart of the city, and it was used by people for meetings of all kinds. They did business, went shopping, listened to wise philosophers discussing their views and theories, and even went to school and conducted their politics here. You could even work on your Athens facial courses here and experience the area the way the ancient Greeks did. Most well-preserved areas are the Hephaisteion Temple and the Stoa of Attalos. The Stoa now houses a museum, and the archeological site can be accessed and explored in a large park.
On the southern end of the Acropolis slope, you will be taken aback by one of the ancient performance venues, the Theater of Dionysos. Constructed around the 4th century BC, it was built on an earlier theater where classical Greek dramas were performed. It is considered to be the true birthplace of European theater. Festivals honoring the god Dionysos were commonly help here as well. Though it is not as well preserved as the Odeion Theater, it is of greater cultural significance, and at one time it could seat up to 17 000 spectators in an auditorium spanned over 64 stone seats, 20 of which have survived the test of time. Alterations have had to be made to it throughout the ages, with 64 thrones added around the perimeter of the orchestra space for people of significance during the Hellenistic period, and a new stage was built during the Roman period. This is a truly unique space, and a must see while enrolled in your Athens facial courses.
Athens is a city that will truly take your breath away, and one could think of few other places better to begin your skin and facial career.
