Past Events

Below please find a few events that we have arranged in the past:

KITE COMPETITION:  This is a typical Shrove Monday tradition, but it can be enjoyed anytime.  Athenians love to fly their kite on the Hill of Pnyx, the Hill where Democracy ever started.  This tradition is followed by traditional food and dance festival.  Winners to be offered special gifts.

 

 

 

TREASURE HUNT:  Get into groups of two or three, hop in a car, and explore the country side, meet the locals, while looking for the hidden “treasure”.   This function will end with a beach party and special gifts to the winner(s).
