Welcome Spring!

March has just appeared and so has Spring. Almond trees are blooming everywhere making the scenery look like a picture from a fairytale and  poppies are ready to show their red heart. So, it’s time for us to prep our vehicles and get ready for a colorful  private spring tour around Greece, admiring nature and all the miracles she so lavishly gives us. So grab your camera and roam with us. It’s our time to escape from our shells and finally breathe the flower-scented air.

Elevator by the Acropolis’ hill

We Greeks are proud of our history and cultural heritage and we strongly believe that everyone deserves to get in touch, even for a glimpse, with something as special as the Parthenon. Thus, our government has taken the initiative to install an elevator by the Acropolis’ hill allowing people to overcome their disabilities and admire up close one of the most famous UNESCO monuments.

Presidential Mansion Evzones - Tsoliás (Change of the Guard)

The Evzones or Evzonoi were several historical elite light infantry and mountain units of the Greek Army. Today, they are the members of the Presidential Guard a ceremonial unit that guards the Greek Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and the Presidential Mansion in Athens.

 An Evzone is also known, colloquially, as a Tsoliás. Evzones are known for their distinctive uniform, which evolved from the clothes worn by the klephts who fought the Ottoman occupation of Greece.
