Historic routes in

GREECE

Introduction

Greece is a country full of unexplored corners and thrilling mysteries. It is a canvas on which we trace pictures that reveal the true essence of what it feels like to live in a place that is ever changing without losing its connection to an invigorating past. It is defined by a network of narratives that accompany us as we wander the alleys, hills, islands, towns and monuments for that particular detail that brings them to life. It offers a communal experience, whereby individuals with a unique perspective reveal the unexpected. A country that inspires a series of recreational and educational activities that encourage spectators to participate in a collaborative survey of seminal past experiences. Greece is a journey through history and mythology in the company of storytellers, queens, philosophers, and tragedians.
