Your Guide

I was born and raised in Athens. I graduated from the Department of "History and Archaeology" of the University of Athens and went on to receive a Master's Degree in Contemporary History from the "Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales" in France (Paris). I have participated in various national and international conferences. I have also worked as an associate in the History Directorate of the Hellenic Army General Staff.

I have been working as a licensed guide since 2014 in English, French and Greek. As of today, I live in Athens and work in various archaeological sites and museums all around Greece. I am passionate about my job! I enjoy meeting people from all around the world and I love that I have the opportunity to showcase the beauties of my beloved country to travelers.

I myself have travelled all over Greece and therefore I can easily adapt to any preferences you may have. I always enjoy highlighting the connection of my country's rich heritage with the vivid lifestyle nowadays. Last but not least, it's always my pleasure to share my passion for both ancient and modern history. Guiding all over Greece is definitely an unforgettable journey, as it is in its core a unique combination of nature and antiquity.
