Victoria Hislop: Athens through her eyes!

Image Gallery

The famous author of The Island (published in Greece by Dioptra Publications), Victoria Hislop invites you to the café of the Numismatic Museum in Athens for a talk on “The Beauty of Athens”. The event will also feature Nikos Vatopoulos from the Every Saturday in Athens group, who will be asking the questions, as well as Vaso Sotiriou.

Since falling in love with Athens the moment she first set foot in the city, Hislop has made her way back to the city as often as possible. She has found joy and peace even in the simplest traditions, like strolls through the city’s narrow alleys, lingering meals at the traditional cafés and becoming part of the small neighbourhoods. Most of all, though, she has been drawn to Athens because of its people.

Together we will tour Patisia and the Acropolis, Lake Vouliagmeni, Plaka and all the places that have inspired her admiration and appreciation of the beautiful country that she now considers her second home.

The talk will be given in English, though many answers will also be provided in Greek.
