The archaeological site of Eleusis includes one of the most important sanctuaries of antiquity and is an important cultural landmark of Attica. Eleusis, as the European Capital of Culture in 2023, aspires to attract a large number of visitors and emerge as a pole of attraction alongside the traditional historical center of Athens. This development requires the upgrading of the digital presence and the formation of a digital footprint of the archaeological site and the museum. This is achieved through the myEleusis project. Its aim is to "introduce" the visitor to Eleusis and its Mysteries by offering him a comprehensive experiential experience through a set of digital applications. In this way, he becomes part of a special cultural identity that connects him with the past. At the same time, the archaeological space and the museum fit more attractively into the environment of the modern city, contributing to its tourism development. At the same time, myEleusis is added to a set of different technologies for constructing a mnemonic stratigraphy and cultural landscapes starting from European travelers and the engravings that adorned their writings and reaching modern games in digital environments that refer to antiquity. All of this will be discussed in the present announcement with the aim of showing different approaches that highlight the way of receiving, understanding and ultimately enjoying the special archaeological site of Eleusis. On the occasion of the project, an opportunity will be given for wider reflection and dialogue, around the perspectives that new technologies (3D, AR, storytelling, etc.) open up in the development of a different relationship between visitors/travelers and those included in the modern urban environment of the ancient world.
