Elena, private guide for Unique Tours Factory

Born and raised in Athens, I have always been passionate about the Ancient Greek civilization and mythology. As a child, travelling to different archeological sites with my parents turned my passion into a obvious vocation. Graduated in Archaeology and Art History from the National Kapodistrian University of Athens, I also attended the ”Tour Guides’ School of Athens” where I got my guiding license, doubled with a certificate for Translations of Literature and Humanistic Studies from EKEMEL (National Centre of Literature Translation), enabling me to guide in Greek, English and Italian. After guiding in different parts of Greece (Olympia, ancient Messene, Methoni, Koroni, Pylos, Mani), I decided to go back to my beautiful city of Athens to show its treasures to visitors coming from all around the world. Sharing my knowledge with people and immersing them in the true atmosphere of Athens is what makes my job so interesting. Athens is not only an old city living in the past. It is also a vibrant and modern capital where history and traditions blend harmoniously with contemporary innovations. If my favorite theme remains archeology, I enjoy talking as well about everything related to the Greek culture - from gastronomy to economy and everyday life. I also love meeting with children and adapting my tours to their needs using stories and games; it is truly fascinating to discover the city through their eyes.
