When I was a child the center of Athens was an unknown entity for me, a place of great mystery and wonder. In my teen years, I started exploring downtown Athens, a process that continues to this very day. Athens is not a notably beautiful city like Paris or Prague. For me, the real beauty of Athens is often hidden, can be found off the beaten path in the most unexpected of places. My involvement with the Athens Insiders, has helped me learn, appreciate, and love the city I live in more than ever before, something I would love to share with you!
