ancient greek symposium
2+ hour* online themed celebration
for friends and families
with an Ithacan host
Nothing about the ancient myths and legends is accidental,
everything hid a logical reason, a little wisdom.
Story-telling was not just an entertainment or another show,
but part of life itself with deep, meaningful cultural variations.
Today the Odyssey, apart from a marvelous piece of literature, is a revelation:
Ancient Greek daily life, customs, ethos, worship, philosophy,
and many other aspects of human consciousness,
even of the human spirit itself emerge from its pages as winged words.
Let’s discover together the magic of an Ancient Greek Symposium:
we will put on our chitons,
prepare our long drinks according to the ancient recipe of kykeon,
listen to the majestic lyre playing long forgotten tunes,
discuss about the everyday life of the Ancients
and solve an ancient mystery
in a 2*-hour of immersion in the Ancient Greek civilization.

during the event
We will sail together on an educational and entertaining voyage in the glorious Greek past, where the myths intertwine with the historical facts. During the Symposium, we will take
a glimpse of the daily life
of the Ancient Greeks at its best:
dining, wine tasting, music, theater, while solving a mystery disappearance,
in a time-travel experience
filling the soul and senses.
You will be welcomed and follow the ancient rituals of hospitality and
actively participate in the mystery solving as orchestrated and recounted by our Ithacan host.
Odysseus, the King of Ithaca has been away for almost 20 years. His wife, Penelope has been avoiding to marry one of her suitors for all this time but has now run out of excuses.
She has summoned you to help her locate her missing husband.
Will you be able to figure out
where he is before it's too late?
The game is suitable for adults and well-adjusted for children of 8 years-old and above, yet younger children are always most welcome to attend and can engage in parallel activities.
The event is offered in English
and we also speak French, Spanish
and naturally Greek.
