Between 1986 and 1990 I lived in the Greek capital Athens. From the top of the Acropolis to the little streets of Plaka it is only a few steps away. As you enter the labyrinth you find all kinds of shops: souvenirs, handicrafts, jewels, art, etc. Just around the corner you can stop in one of the little Tavernas with wobbly tables which are part of the folklore and enjoy a glass of “Retsina” straight from the barrel.
The town is vast and there are thousands of things to be discovered: theaters, museums, archeological sites and the omissible Kolonaki. There you can find the square with coffee shops under the trees, narrow streets that go up and down the hills where cute art galleries are hiding. Also, don’t forget to catch the rack and pinion railway which brings you straight to Likavitos church where public writers are still busy.
Spending Week-ends is a matter of choice, at the beach, on one of the islands, visiting museums, monasteries in the Meteors, - Cont. below…

archeological sites and why not the mountains in winter. May I express my weakness for Delphi?
Greece is a country rich in colours where everyone can find their place. Like me, I found serenity in these little streets which has offered me a quiet walk through time.
