Easytraveller Mitt exhibitionThe inauguration of one of the biggest and most important word tourism exhibitions, the  MITT in the Moscow, where Greece was the honored country, was made by the undersecretary of Culture and Tourism Mrs.  Angela Gerekou , with representatives of Russian Federal government and representatives of Municipality of Moscow. Present were journalists of television networks and specialized tourist magazines.
In her greeting she pointed out: For us, the Greeks, the tourism is not an activity of secondary importance, but is one from the main axes of our economy. As a new government we change the way, that the state faces the subject of tourism. We aim we make Greece, a destination for all the time and not only for the summer months. Greece has to offer not only the seas and the sun but also her cultural heritage as the New Acropolis Museum, and also cruises, religious tourism and alternative tourism.

You are all invited, in the country of search and dream, in the country the light and the harmony, in the country of art and beauty, in the country of Hospitality. Greece is ready and waits for you. The tourism in Greece, is an activity which, not only has not been influenced by the economic problem, but on the contrary,  becomes still more competitive and still more attractive. More simply speaking, the prices have been in the lower possible levels, while the quality of tourist services, remains high.
The messages from the first reservations from the tourist market of Russia, allow us to be optimistic .The sings show that there will be an  increase of tourist movement to Greece, which can reach or even exceed the 30%, given that the hotel prices for this year are the same as last year.

Regarding the visa for the Russian tourists we are working in order to facilitate the procedures and I hope that soon we will be issuing visas for six months or more.

Monasteries of Meteora GreeceMost people think that these days with the exposure of the Internet and the plethora of information and the ability to search and find almost everything would not be any need to contact a travel agency for your vacations.
Well might be like this but still many people trust their travel agents for the organization of their vacations and they have very good reasons for doing this like:
a. The time for searching and finding all the information and the contacts and to communicate with all the service providers is very much and in most cases not worth.
b. For a smooth run of a vacation there are many things involved and this makes the whole package a complicated planning

Santorini Thira Island Greece
c. Local travel agents know better their places and can communicate very easily with the service providers
d. In most cases, to be accurate with the information they provide, they have inspected the places before recommendation.
e. Travel agents when they contact the service providers they are dealing on behalf of all their clients and in this way are getting better prices.
f. Now days the competition is very high and travel agents always try to give clients the best price so they get the business
g. When you book a vacation package you only have to deal with one agency and hold them responsible for the whole operation and not with all the service providers.
h. If there is any irregularity the local travel agent will act more accurate and in shorter time to solve the problem

The church of Aghia Sophia in Istanbuli. In case of any last moment cancellation the travel agency might deal better with the hotels or the other involved parties while these parties will be more tough with the direct client
j. Booking a vacation package you keep control of your expenses as you know from the beginning the total cost of all the services.
k. If everything is planned you win time because you do not have to be always looking for transportation, timetables, schedule changes… and this way you see more places and go conveniently.
l. Using a local travel agency you can be an easytraveller because you have nit to worry about the whole organization of your vacation and the only thing you have to care is to have a good time and enjoy the places you visit

We wish you all good trips and unforgettable vacations

For 11 days, from September 16 to 27, the heart of cinema will beat in Athens. Highlights of this year’s festival include two important openings for Greek cinema, a collection of 20 rare cult films and specials dedicated to two of the greatest contemporary film pioneers, Danish director Jørgen Leth and Polish filmmaker Zbigniew Rybczynski.

Cult Films

For its 20th anniversary, the 15th Athens International Film Festival – Opening Nights will present 20 rare gems that have achieved cult status. Lost in time, the copies of the off-beat and bizarre films comprising our cult films specials are something like the Holy Grail for festival staff who have combed through old collections, universities and forgotten production companies to locate them.

European Pioneers

The 15th Athens International Film Festival – Opening Nights is proud to present two of the most diverse European artists working today. Jørgen Leth is an anthropologist, jazz critic and poet, but we will get to know him through his groundbreaking documentaries, screened as part of the Jørgen Leth Special at this year’s Opening Nights.

Also, the 15th Athens International Film Festival will present a selection of Polish director’s Zbigniew Rybczynski’s finest films. Rybczynski, who received an Academy Award for his 1981 short animation, Tango, is considered one of contemporary cinema’s greatest pioneers.

Festival Sections

As always, the 15th Athens International Film Festival – Opening Nights will include two competition sections.

In the International Competition section, young directors will compete for the Golden Athena Award and the extremely popular Music & Film Competition section, whose winner will receive the Golden Athena.

Regular sections of the 15th Athens International Film Festival – Opening Nights include:

Panorama, a hand-picked selection of last year’s productions;

Midnight Movies, whose late night screening times are not the only thing that will give you chills;

Premiers, the chance to be the first to watch some of the coming season’s best features;

Cinema on the Edge, for those not afraid of films taking it to the extreme;

Documentaries, because life is often more engaging than fiction; and

Short Stories, because a cinematic experience can leave a mark irrespective of its length.

Note that in Greece, foreign films are not dubbed; they just carry subtitles in Greek, therefore you can watch them in their original language.

Don’t miss in this year Athens International Film Festival – Opening Nights contemporary film pioneers, Danish director Jørgen Leth and Polish filmmaker Zbigniew Rybczynski, the presentation of 20 cult films and all the regular sections of the Athens International Film Festival.

An exhibition with the theme “Pericles Xanthippus” will take place at the end of autumn as part of the museum’s special exhibits featuring as its centrepiece the bust of Pericles from the Pergamon Museum in Berlin. The goal of the exhibit is to present Pericles’ construction plans for the Acropolis and its induction into the public life of classical Athens.

At the same time, the museum’s exhibit will be enhanced by new models of the Acropolis to improve services for visitors.

Finally, it should be noted that the museum already has a physician available for staff and visitors. In addition to the physician’s surgery, a baby and child care room is soon expected to open on the first floor of the museum.

As Greek Minister of Culture Antonis Samaras said: “With the Acropolis Museum as an example, we are working intensively to increase visits to all the museums and archaeological sites of the country. Our goal is to preserve and promote our cultural heritage, but mainly to link it to education and young people.
