Explore Hadrian’s Aqueduct -  the [Nearly] Invisible Ancient Innovation Still Used Today 

Alum George Sachinis and the team at the UrbanDig Project Invite You to Take the Exclusive Tour Taking Place THIS SUNDAY June 2nd
Get to know Hadrian’s Aqueduct, reflect on the sustainability of Athens, and have fun!

Precious water, which we easily draw daily from our taps, may not remain as readily available in the coming years. That's why the UrbanDig Project created the Adventure at the Hadrian's Aqueduct, a unique aqueduct of this type and size in Europe, which still carries water, despite being built approximately 1900 years ago!

An unknown, underground Roman monument that still transports water and invisibly traverses eight municipalities of Attica,  starting from the foothills of Mount Parnitha and the Olympic Village ending at Dexameni Square in Kolonaki.

What will we do?

We will get to know the Hadrian’s Aqueduct, reflect on the climate sustainability of our city, and have fun! 

Following the steps of the "dancing water" by bus, we sensitively traverse the landscapes of Athens that encapsulate aspects of the climate change we all experience. 

The route will be made by bus and includes the stops: 

Olympic Village - Open section of Kifisos (borders of Acharnes-Kifisia) - Irini (OAKA)

This is a unique opportunity integrating art & nature for children and adults alike. 

You will have the opportunity to play, discovering visible traces of the aqueduct, to think of creative solutions regarding urban climate sustainability to converse with it, to learn about the aqueduct, and of course, to have fun! 

Together, we will learn about available water resources and thus enrich our perspective on how we can manage them better.

Come and be enchanted by something that seems distant but is beneath our feet, and cultivate our relationship with water, learning while having fun!

Hosted in Greek, the activity is for adults & children from 9 years old and above.

Dates: Sunday, June 2nd

Time: 11:00-14:00

Meeting point: ISAP Station Irini

Cost: 18 euros (15 euros per person for groups of four or more people)
