Journey

Aspects of travel and tourism in their historical, cultural, economic and sociological dimensions.

  • Local Archaeology

    Visitors to Thessaly most often cross the region in one day, just to see Meteora. According to current travel literature, this is certainly understandable given that “the site of Meteora is a must-see in mainland Greece. These monasteries are known to be built on rocky peaks, in a truly enchanting landscape”.

  • Sites of memory

    In the eyes of historians, “sites of memory” are everywhere, proof, if any were needed, that the memory of places is often more solid than the places themselves. This is what we verified during our trip to Central Thessaly, a region completely ignored by tourists, and sometimes even… forgotten by its own people.

  • Visit of Meteora

    The Greek winter is dying quickly again this year, according to the unanimous affirmation of the moment, thus paraphrasing a talented spy and equally famous writer. End of February in the land of Zeus and it is already Spring, even under the rocks of the eternal Meteora. Visiting them at this time of year also avoids the usual crowds of the high summer season. This is exactly what we did, because “Greece Differently” is first and foremost for all times.
