Athens, being the capital of a country that is situated between three continents, has developed into a melting pot of different cultures. Dionysios’s goal is to be able to introduce visitors to this lively and exciting city and to demonstrate to them that apart from its vivid past there is also a rather interesting present and a promising future.
