I was born in Athens together with the third century. I am a student of Middle East studies department (The National and Kapodistrian University of Athens) . Our family is successfully hosting Airbnb guests on our own property for several years. The centre of Athens is my Big Home, I love it and I love to share my knowledge, gained through the years of exploring every cotner if it, studying ancient Greek and Greek history, recapitulating old rare and latest books and documents. I am happy if I can make you feel Athens more yours , remember your trip here, make you dream about coming back.
