Greek history

You might start your activities with the Acropolis of Athens. Through photo tours and certified guides you can have a brief but comprehensive view of the landmark of the western civilization, beyond the stereotypical tours. Other realted tours you might join are those that include the famous Epidavros ancient theater with the pitch-perfect acoustics and the mythical Mycenae archaeological site, all in a close range from Athens. Some more places you might visit, as you delve deeper into antiquity and the beginnings of Western civilization, are the Minoan palaces of Knossos on Crete, the Minoan path on the Lassithi Plateau (Crete) making your way down onto the to Zeus’ Cave and finally the ancient Kamiros site in Rhodes


Greece has been also the cross path regarding the spreading of Christianity in Europe. Greeks are very religious and evaluate a lot relative tours in several parts of the country as that at the hill of Filerimos at the top of one of the three Ancient cities of Rhodes the city of Ialysos, the birth place of Diagoras.

Traditions in Greece
Greek culture however, is not only ruins and archaeological sites. Greeks have learned to honour their heritage and today the imprint of these past times lives on in time-honoured traditions. You can feel them through lessons of traditional dances or exploring the neoclassical era of Greek cities. You can also experience traditions in rural parts of the country by participating in village feasts or Dionysean customs still practiced for carnival. What is more, there plenty of crafts you can take courses, old and more avant-garde, as for example in pottery cosmetics and soap making, yoga and photoshooting .
