ATHENS

Athens is the historical capital of Europe, with a long history, dating from the first settlement in the Neolithic age.

 In the 5th Century BC (the “Golden Age of Pericles”) – the culmination of Athens’ long, fascinating history – the city’s values and civilization acquired a universal significance.

Over the years, a multitude of conquerors occupied Athens, and erected unique, splendid monuments – a rare historical palimpsest.

In 1834, it became the capital of the modern Greek state and in two centuries since it has become an attractive modern metropolis with unrivalled charm.

A large part of the town’s historic centre has been converted into a 3-kilometre pedestrian zone (the largest in Europe), leading to the major archaeological sites , reconstructing to a large degree the ancient landscape.

MYKONOS

Who doesn’t have something to say about Mykonos, who hasn’t swim in its vast boundless blue waters, who hasn’t lived unforgettable moments…

Mykonos is: the sea, the sky, the sun, the hospitality, the fun, the harmony, the charm. A never-ending real myth surrounding us, every part of it a reality, something special, challenging you to live it, taste it, relish it. A barren island, arid, scorched by the sun, full of golden beaches and crystal waters. The white color, the stone and the scattered mountains are indelible memories in the mind. The natural elements are vivid and strong, filling you, guiding you in new sensations; the air, the sun, the moon are the eternal guides.

The harmony of the Mykonian architecture is astonishing. The location and the way the town of Mykonos is build -inside the Northern eye- the port, the particular colors… It is an exceptional masterpiece. No man and no plan would be able to create something so unique.
