Mr Goulios Thea Souvenir Interview02-02-2015 15:23Mr Goulios, let me ask about Thea Souvenir Shop. It was this year moved to the central mall of Palios Agios Athanasios. What made you take this decision?
Our store is specialized in manufacturing wood-carved objects. Beyond the folk art items and the gifts and all the other items we sell... And we wanted to find a place in the most central part of the village. The commercial center of Palios Agios Athanasios is what we were looking for, since it gives us the opportunity to expose our work, our art crafts, the toys, the traditional products. At the same time Thea store is an entertainment corner for both children and adults.
Tell us a little bit about your wood-carved objects.
They are highly demanded by the tourists who visit the traditional settlement of Palios Agios Athanasios. My son Konstantinos Goulios was the one who got inspired and created the first objects made of wood. He has now a workshop in the village and he constantly works on creating unique objects of timber.
What exactly can one find in Thea Souvenir Shop?
Well, we offer a wide range of items, including the essentials: bottles of water, umbrellas, clothing accessories such as gloves, scarves etc.
In detail, apart from souvenirs and woodcarvings, the visitor will find gifts, folk art, antiques, rugs, toys, as well as furs from Kastoria region. There is also a corner with traditional products from local producers, like honey, wine, pasta and desserts. Finally, you'll find apples coming from our own private production.
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.
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.
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.
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.
