We had a fantastic time. The guide was knowledgeable and engaging. Being able to do philosophy in such an historic place is truly a fantastic experience.
Response from Host, Mar 2023
Dear Noah, Thank you very much for coming and I am glad both of you enjoyed your time in the ruins of the gymnasium. I also enjoyed your questions and our discussion on platonic thoughts and how they can be seen around us today. Hope to see you again!

Fantastically good concept, plan, leader, and execution. This is a wonderful educational experience, perfect for the tourist/traveler with an inquiring mind who wants not just see sites but also to learn new things and broaden the mind. Much, much more interesting and worthwhile than the typical tour that is a numbing ride past old buildings. Do it!
Response from Host, Jul 2022
Dear David and Margot thank you so much for your feedback and for your active participation! It was my pleasure to discuss Plato's ideas with you, your input was indeed valuable! Hope to hear from you soon!
open your mind to a new perspective
Jennifer_T, Aug 2021
I loved this!! What better way to learn about philosophy’s founding father than to discuss Plato’s allegory of the cave while sitting on the ruins of his academy. We had a fascinating conversation about the role of philosophy in the modern world & even practiced having a discussion/debate just like how it was done in the ancient agora. The museum is small but very well done so adults and kids will learn from it.

Dear Jennifer, thank you so much for the feedback. We loved your enthusiasm and active participation! You 've got the Socrates' talent!
Eine erlebnisreiche Erfahrung

Olga hat diesen Workshop in lockerer, entspannter und dennoch lehhreicher Art gestaltet. Sie hat uns viele Informationen über Platon und seine Akademie vermittelt und uns mit praxisnahen Beispielen und Diskussionen miteingebunden. Es hat viel Spaß gemacht und nach dem Workshop zum Weiterdenken angeregt. Ευχαριστώ!
