Arachova, Boeotia - A high standard mountain resort
Sunday, 18 March 2018
A scenic town situated at an altitude of 970m on the slopes of Parnassos mountain. It’s not very far from Athens (180km) and is very close to the archaeological site of Delphi (12km) and the Parnassos Ski Resort (25km). It has excellent hotels, many of which seem to be hanging off the edge of the mountain. The scenery is magnificent and visitors seem to think they are on an airplane looking down. Cliffs and mountainous terrain all around and in the distance one can see the blue of the Corinthian gulf. An environment of absolute calm interrupted only by the distant sounds of sheep bells and axes chopping wood for fireplaces. At the local tavernas, visitors can taste local meat and cheeses as well as heavenly syrupy desserts, which they will never forget. The tourist infrastructures are plenty and of good quality and promise to satisfy the preferences of all visitors, regardless of age.

A “feast” of contemporary art in Athens. We photographed many of the pieces for our readers. Click to see.
An island with a big history, untouched natural environment, vast beaches and great sights, such as the Asclepieion of Hippocrates.
A blow by blow account of the last moments of Costantine Palaiologos, the last reigning Byzantine emperor, at the Gate of Romanos. The breathtaking story, told through pictures taken at place he martyred, brings pain to the Greek people.
Travelogue in Alexandria of Cavafy, at the places where this great Greek poet lived, created and died.
Every afternoon, crowds from every corner of the earth are gathered at Oia in order to enjoy the sunset in the Aegean sea.
It can't be farther south, in front of the Libyan Sea, with castles, legends and african type vast beaches.
A photo album of the Buffer Zone. Ghost homes, barbed wire, outposts and fortification. It’s like time stood still since 1974 and not even a day has gone by.
Instead of leaving Greece in to work abroad they founded a business in their homeland. They are successful and they don’t wallow in self pity. It’s like they’re living in a different country and not crisis struck, depressed Greece.
