The Greek Ornithological Society welcomes you to a unique photo exhibition “Travelling with Birds. ”

And you don’t have to travel up to the Wetlands area in Ilion to see it – you’ll find the birds have traveled down to the city center, Monastiraki specifically, and you can check them out while sipping a cool drink and taking a break from the heat of the day.  You’ll find them at Kolokotronis 25, in the Stoa Praxitelis.

The exhibition presents the wonderful world of birds with striking photos from the wild in Greece. The exhibition recalls the importance of protecting wildlife and their habitats and the need to enable us all to ensure a sustainable environment for birds and for humans.

Exhibition opening : Thursday, July 8th , 20:30
Duration: July 8 – September 5
Hours : Monday to Saturday 10.00 – 22.00 , Sunday 20.00-22.00

How does a little girl from Skokie, Illinois find herself in historical Athens, leading curious explorers through the winding streets of Plaka, down "pezodromos" to hidden ouzeries for tempting mezedhes and homemade barrel wine? The journey began more than twenty years ago, and regardless of whether the wanderlust comes from the spiritual and culture DNA flowing through my veins, or the alignment of the stars on that cold mid-December day this Sagitterian came into the world, I never seem to tire of exploring my adopted homeland of Greece. Here you'll join me as I explore Athens: be it the back streets of Psirri and Gazi, or through the National Gardens and Zappeio where a family of turtles makes their home, or down wide, treelined Imittou Street in Pagrati, which pulses with Athenian life 24 hours a day. And while Athens has stolen my heart, the rest of Greece vies for my curiousity and wanderlust. My two guys (that'd be the Greek God, Vasilis and our Greek dog, Scruffy) and I can often be found settling in for a long weekend in some charming mountain village, or a quaint fishing port on a nearby island, or learning how Greek vitners are producing wines that rival some of Napa Valley's finests productions, or celebrating a panayeri in Epirus or sharing in the festivities as a family of Cretan sheepherders come together to sheer their 1500 sheep in the spring ... And if you happen to find yourself heading to Athens, consider finding yourself a real home for your stay. Living amongst the locals, be it for 3 nights or 3 weeks, will offer you the chance to experience true Athens, beyond the Acropolis. Choose from one of our 5 beautiful penthouse and historical homes, and who knows, I may be leading you down that winding "pezodromo" to our favorite hidden ouzerie!
