Athens Marathon: A big Hug05-11-2014 12:53More than 2,000 volunteers, a unique number for the Athens Marathon event and not only, are ready to “run” their own race during the 32nd “ATHENS MARATHON. THE AUTHENTIC”.
And this number could be even bigger if the needs of the organization were not met long before the conclusion of the Volunteers’ registration period. Indicatively we mention that last year (in 2013) 1,950 volunteers had offered their services in the event, while in 2012 the relevant number was 1,800 and in 2011 1,700.
Out of the total number of this year’s volunteers, 1,280 are men and 900 women while they come not only from Greece but from various countries around Europe, Asia and America as well.
With the older being 86 years old and the younger 12, this mighty team of the Athens Marathon has won one of the most necessary presences of the historical race. A lot of them play quite important roles during the event contributing decisively in its success.
A big part of the volunteers’ team consists of rescue teams while there are a lot of schools that contribute massively to the Marathon’s organization for many years.
All together constitute the most compact and valuable piece of the puzzle that form the 32nd Athens Marathon, working often under adverse conditions and with sole reward their contribution to this great sport celebration, the greatest celebration of Athens.
A special reference to them nominally is the less possible acknowledgement of the significant and very important work they accomplish.

We have been choosing Parea Tavern for our meals and dinners for 14 years! Every time someone from Touristorama travels to the island of Santorini, he enjoys authentic Greek cuisine at the terrace of this restaurant in the heart of Fira. And we are not the only ones. Thousands of tourists include it among their favorites on the volcanic island.
The Marmita Restaurant is now a part of the history of Santorini, since it has been operating in Megalochori since 2004. From 2013 it s been running under the observation of new owner Giannis Manikas and the sense of renewal is obvious.
More than just a famous tourist destination, Santorini boasts a romantic scene where you can have some really memorable moments with your partner. The time when the sun sets deep down to the Aegean Sea and the sky gets these amazing orange colors is the best to enjoy a cocktail. One of the best places to do so is the Classico bar restaurant in the capital of Fira.
Touristorama has been travelling all around Greece and its islands for over a decade. This year, during our trip to Naxos, the biggest of the Cyclades complex, we discovered an interesting spot, perfect for your night out on the island… which is what we do best: finding the best places and then propose you should visit them! Prime is a Scandinavian Bar, located on a privileged position in Chora of Naxos, opposite the port. It’s been operating for 21 years and enjoys a great fame to both foreign and local tourists.
It opened in 2004 and soon became one of the favourite dining spots in Santorini. It is called Metaxy mas which means.. between us, but it is not a secret any more that this restaurant has a rich menu with almost 40 different dishes and appetizers based on traditional Greek cuisine.
Explore the fascinating volcanic island of Santorini the way you want it yourself! Enjoy a unique accommodation experience, with huge doses of privacy and luxury by choosing to stay in Incognito Villa.
