My wife and 12-year-old daughter and I visited Athens in late August 2016 from New York City. We spent the better part of a day with Marialena, touring the Temple of the Olympian Zeus, the Agora, the Acropolis and the Plaka district of the city. Marialena knows her stuff — she's got a bachelor's in archaeology from a university in Athens and a masters in site preservation from a university in Italy — and her enthusiasm for, and knowledge of, her city, her country and the history of both are palpable and infectious. We could not have seen ancient Athens through better eyes. My daughter was mesmerized by Marialena's narrative and the context in which she placed everything we saw. So were my wife and I. You could not find a better guide to Athens. (Her English is superb, by the way). Highly recommended!
