My name is Eva VRONTINAKI, I was born and raised in Athens where I live and work as an official tour guide.
Since my childhood, I love discovering hidden stories behind places, monuments and artifacts which come from different historical periods. As a consequence, my special interest for any part of Greek culture - through history, mythology, archeology, literature, art, nature and customs - led me to study History and Archaeology at the University of Athens (Kapodistrian University of Athens) and History of Art (Master's degree) at the University of Lille in France (Charles-de-Gaule Lille III University). During my studies I had also participated in different archaeological programs in Greece - excavation programs: The Neolithic Cave of Poros (Drakaina Cave) on Kefalonia island, the Diogenes' Gymnasium at Plaka in Athens, the Hellenistic Fortress on Antikythera island etc. and recording programs on the collections of Hellenistic and Roman ceramics from the Archaeological Museum of the University of Athens.
At present, I am a licensed tour guide authorized by the Greek State to conduct guided tours in English, French and Greek.This means that I communicate my knowledge and personal experience to visitors helping them to discover the different colors of Greek culture from past to present. Parallel to this, having a genuine passion for my job I am working constantly to have a continuing education on different aspects of Greek culture studying and attending conferences (especially regarding the progress of archaeological researches in Greece).
As a professional, I offer guided tours throughout Greece for individuals, groups and families.

Attica is the wider area in which Athens is located. As Athens is the heart in the body of Attica, not far from Athens we can discover a different landscape from the urban with important archaeological sites.
UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Greece
Until today, there are 18 UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Greece (last inscription in 2016) and there are also 14 sites on the tentative list. But what is the importance of UNESCO World Heritage Sites? The World Heritage Sites are monuments which are considered as the best examples of human creative genius and represent important parts of the world history of humanity. http://whc.unesco.org/en/statesparties/GR/
