Dionysios was born and raised in Athens, where he works as a licensed guide. He studied Archaeology at the University of Wales, Lampeter, and participated in various archaeological excavations and fieldtrips in the UK, Greece and Albania. For his dissertation, Dionysios conducted an ethno-archaeological research on the ethnic minority group of Vlachs in South Albania. Since 2006 he has been working as a licensed guide in various archaeological sites and museums of Greece. Always eager to expand his knowledge, Dionysios completed a Master’s in Cultural Management (with honours) at the Panteion University of Athens, where he specialised in Museum Studies. In 2021, Dionysios completed his PhD research on Greek souvenirs, an interdisciplinary study that combined approaches from the fields of archaeology, museum studies, anthropology, and tourism studies. Furthermore, being an Athenian, he always tries to find ways of presenting his hometown in a way that connects its rich heritage with its buzzing present. 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.
