The hunt of the 12 Gods!

City Tours

Walking Tour - Educational program for families

Duration: 90 '- 120' | Location: Heraklion city center | Starting point: Eleftherias Square

The king of the Gods, the almighty Zeus, travels to the island of Crete! The reason; But ... because all the Gods from Olympus were just… lost! A strong south wind blew on the Mountain Olympus and since then all the thrones have been left empty. Where is the goddess Athena now? Where has Hephaestus drilled? In which Cretan waters is Poseidon swimming?

Parents and children take part in a hidden treasure hunt in the city of Heraklion. With the help of Zeus, they solve puzzles, explore monuments and discover the 12 Gods of Olympus. Among them is the Pandora's box. Will it really help them in this crazy search?

Twelve gods are waiting for you hidden in twelve places in the city of Heraklion!

Are you ready to discover them?
