Visiting Nara

He or she will make you discover some unknown, hidden places full of charm and devoid of tourists… And some experiences can be memorable. So, this is the latest idea of the Greek Tourism Authority – visit Athens with a Greek who will show you the nicest parts of Athens (and most of them are well hidden), to talk about local culture or, why not, about the Grexit !
