Your guide will take you to the Eleusis archeological site where you can follow the same route the Eleusinian mysteries procession did and visit the archaeological site and museum, the place where the great mysteries of Eleusis took place.

Take the path that Persephone took to the underworld and the great temple Telestirion where the Eleusinian climax took place and where the followers discovered the answer to the universal question "what happens after death" and were "set free".
