Delphi: A not to be missed Greek site!04-02-2015 14:36The archaeological site of Delphi has been inscribed upon the World Heritage List of the Convention concerning the Protection of the World Cultural and Natural Heritage of UNESCO on the 11th December 1987 (criteria I, II, III, IV and V). Inscription on this List confirms the outstanding universal value of the cultural or natural property that deserves protection for the benefit of all humanity. The archaeological site of Delphi is a Panhellenic sanctuary with an international fame. Its remnants represent some of the foremost events of art and architecture. The sanctuary, which combines in a unique manner the natural and historical environment, is related to numerous, key events of Greek history that have an impact on the progress of civilization.
The most important monuments of the site of Delphi are the Temple of Apollo, the Treasury of the Athenians that housed the offers to God Apollo, the Altar of the Chians, the Stoa of Athenians that housed the trophies taken in the Athenians’ naval victories over the Persians, the Theatre, the Stadium, the Castalian Spring, Tholos, a circular building in Doric order and the Polygonal Wall. It’s worth visiting the Archaeological Museum to learn more about the famous Oracle and the significant region of Delphi.
Located in the southern slopes of Mt Parnassus, only 10 km away the popular winter destination of Arachova and the ski center, Delphi is one of the most famous tourist places in Greece and a real pole of attraction, not only for those who are interested in history and civilization, but for every single traveller who enjoys meeting something new.

Something old, something new.... Marmita combines them both!

Aktaion - Writing gastronomic history since 1922
Like a relay race of three generations; a journey with happy days, sad days, joys, sorrows, wars, Occupation, poverty, hunger, deaths, volcanic eruptions, catastrophic earthquakes, flee for a better life, return, better days, feasts, tourism explosion, financial crises and so on… Everything has been indelibly inscribed on the walls of this small building, Aktaion. I feel grateful that life has given me the opportunity to hold the reins of Aktaion all the way to its centennial.
Santorini has a secret... but we have to share it.
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.
