Local

I am a writer and percussionist and am interested in World Literature, Music and Dance. I enjoy having conversations with people about any topic of interest, including the arts, music, dance, history, film, photography, shopping and cuisine. I find meeting people from different countries fascinating and I love exchanging stories, learning about cultures and interacting socially. I really look forward to showing you some amazing places around my neighbourhood, Acropolis and Koukaki. Some of the places you may be interested in are the Acropolis Museum, the Odeon of Herodes Atticus (Ancient Theatre), Philopappou Hill and Monument, Pnyx, Socrates' Prison, Ancient Agora, Plaka and The National Museum of Contemporary Art in Athens. Meanwhile, there are lots of lovely cafes and tavernas in the area to stop by and enjoy a traditional local meal and refreshing drinks. I look forwarding to meeting you and showing you around Ancient Athens!
