Overview

Athens is a very beautiful city that has been inhabited continuously since 4000 BC. Literally everyone “passed” through Athens They have “passed” and left their mark. Civilizations that have either “integrated” into the identity of the Modern Greek or not.

In any case, Athens is not only the city of classical times, even though its appearance refers directly to Ancient Greece.

And it’s nice to be time travelers, in a city like Athens.

Sounio is a magical place, full of positive energy and definitely a “must see”.

Delphi is a place, you have to visit, it looks like, the light and the atmosphere is different there… maybe it’s the light of Apollo!  That makes you feel more hopeful and your shoulders lighter.

Visiting an ancient temple and be able to walk inside and stand in the sanctuary, is a magical experience (temples of Apollo & Artemis at Lilaia)

With this experience, we tried to organize the traveler’s time in such a way that, finally, leaving Athens, he has the feeling that he really met Athens.

This experience is not a walk in monuments, with monologues like teaching. Its soul rebirth and real acquaintance with Greece!

We think it is wonderful to fill images and emotions! For us that will be the goal!
