We are delighted to announce our latest half-day itinerary in Athens, Modern Muses. It is the perfect way to infuse your visit to the Greek capital with the sights, sounds and spirit of Greece’s ongoing cultural renaissance.

Lila Polenaki FullfilledFrom the country’s top museums to its most prestigious galleries, this tour gives guests an in-depth look at the Athenian art scene, complemented by a colorful meal at one of its most trendy restaurants.

But what makes Modern Muses truly special is the one-on-one time that guests get to spend with an artist in his or her workshop.*

“Every time we bring guests into an artist’s workshop, something magical happens,” says Sotiris Karkanias, a tour guide with DGC. “They can sense that they have entered into a creative space, and they gain a rare window into the artist’s creative process. By the time we leave the studio, guests feel like they have not only observed Greece’s art scene, but participated in it as well.”

In this light, Modern Muses is designed to be as inspirational as it is educational. We hope that our guests not only learn about contemporary Greek culture, but draw inspiration from it that they can carry back home—like a souvenir for the soul.

“This is a really unique opportunity that can lead to some memorable and impactful moments,” says Sotiris. “It’s amazing what a difference a half-day can make!”
