The Acropolis Restoration Service (YSMA) participated in 2017 European Heritage Days (22-24/9). This year’s celebration had the special theme “Cities – Pol(e)is: old and new, small or large, major or less important, alive or forgotten”. As part of this celebration, the YSMA Information and Education Office organized at the Acropolis archaeological site a special educational programme entitled “The Acropolis in the life of ancient Athens”.

Students who attended the programme took a walk on the Acropolis, learned about  the Acropolis through time and especially about the four greatest monuments in classical times. They focused on  the role of the Acropolis during the Classical period not only in the religious life of citizens but also in their daily life.
