Aristotle's Lyceum open to public

 

One of the sites on the "Green Cultural Routes" program organized by the Culture Ministry’s Directorate of Museums, Exhibitions and Educational Programs Department is Aristotle’s Lyceum, which opened its doors to the public on Wednesday after an introductory event last month aimed at acquainting the public with the site and the tour.

The tour was led by the head of the Third Ephorate of Classical Antiquities, Eleni Banou.

The Lyceum, located between the Officers Club, the Athens Conservatory and the Byzantine Museum on the junction between Rigillis Street and Vassileos Constantinou Avenue will be formally inaugurated later in the summer, but is currently open to visitors from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily. Admission is free of charge.

Aristotle’s Lyceum is believed to have been established as the ancient philosopher’s seat of learning in 335 BC.

Signposts located at the site are insightful, informing the public about the history of the site that Aristotle rented in
