Born in Greece and raised in Cyprus, Demetra has always been fascinated with the remains of the ancient past that marked the landscape in both her homelands. She studied History and Archaeology (BA) at the University of Cyprus and she holds an MA in Cultural Studies from Maastricht University, the Netherlands. During her studies she participated in various land and underwater archaeological excavations. She also spent a year at the University of Granada, Spain where she studied the Spanish language and culture. After receiving her MA she worked in field of Arts and Culture organizing exhibitions, tours and educational programs for adults and children. The past few years she has been based in Athens leading thematic guided tours for locals and visitors alike while participating in various artistic and cultural projects on a freelance basis. A good tour for Demetra balances between providing interesting historical content and insightful information about the way that a site is perceived and experienced today. When she is not working she enjoys walking and exploring the endless niches and alleys of Athens, watching movies at one of the city’s open air cinemas, reading poetry and literature and spending the evenings with good food and friends on Athenian rooftops. As a tour guide she is eager to highlight and reveal the stories, secrets and multiple layers of history that inhabit and shape the Greek landscape.
