Walking into The Loom, it’s an unexpected oasis of cool air conditioning with a warm and friendly family who serve you. There’s a plethora of woven tapestries to choose from, but I’m limited to what my carry-on luggage can handle. Woe is me! Be sure...More

Mitropolis cathedral, as well as a host of places to
stay, eat and drink. Its pedestrian zones make it a
pleasant place to escape from the city’s notorious
traffic. Adrianou and Kidathineon Streets contain a
