Selected themes / stories
We have prepared fun multi media shows to add value to your experience and provide a better and in-depth picture of Greece. These are not theatrical productions rather selected themes / stories performed by our story teller with the help of audio and visuals. We have produced four shows, with two performances a week, alternating the following week with the remaining two to maintain new options for guests staying longer than a week.
A curse or a blessing. Learn how it was conceived, how it was designed and implemented. At the time of its creation it helped Greece become the center of culture while at the same time it resulted in problems such as endless debate and conflict. Today, world over, suppressed people demand more democracy while those who have it try to find ways to take it back from politicians.
Homer & why he still matters
Recently a UK study voted Homer’s Odyssey as the greatest story ever told.

Themes from the age of heroes, such as glory and fame, homecoming, honor, wrath, and fate were and still are part of our daily lives. Adapted from the novel by Adam Nicolson.
