29 May 2022
Born in Melbourne, the author and teacher of English language and literature, leads us to an Athens that becomes the setting of a mystery story, in which modern faces and aspects of life and the city have unexpected encounters with faces and myths of Greek mythology.
“Dark Athens”, a fascinating police adventure in the streets of Athens where hidden symbols and the historical monuments that adorn the city are starring, is the occasion for the tour that the author Arthur Antonopoulos will give in the buildings and the historical events that stigmatized the city of Athens in the past and created the city that we see today, a city with light!
Following in the footsteps of the heroine of his book who tries to unravel the tangle of a conspiracy, our journey will start from the City Hall of Athens in Kotzia Square (EthnikisAntistaseos Square / Kotzia) where in 1859 the first games called “Olympia” took place and reflects the power of the Bankers at the time. It will continue to Klafthmonos Square and the buried walls of the city, the Old Parliament and the importance of its orientation, and then it will head to the historic buildings of Syntagma and the commercial streets, Ermou and Stadiou to reach Zappeion.
