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!

  1. I want to go to the festival, I am going to be in Athens and I need to know if there is a bus station, from Athens to Epidaurus. if you know where I can go to take the bus it would be awesome.

    1. You can catch a bus from the Kifissos bus station, at Kifssou 100 (taxi from Syntagma is around 8 euro). The buses leave every Friday and Saturday at 5 pm for the festival venue. It takes around 2 hours each way, and a round trip ticket is 20 euro. The buses leave the theater 15 minutes after the end of the performanc.e You can get information abou this in Athens by calling 210/5134588.
      Alternatively you could spend the day in lovely Nafplion and then catch a bus from there. The buses leave Nafplio every Friday and Saturday when there are performance at Ancient Epidaurus, departing at 7:30 pm for the 45 minute trip. The cost of a round trip ticket is 6 euro.
