Eugenia Papadopoulou, Santorini Tour Guide

My name is Eugenia and I am a certified, English, Italian, Spanish and Greek speaking tour guide. Being born and growing up in a place where myths and history blended across centuries, I developed a keen interest in culture and archaeology and a great curiosity about foreign cultures and languages. I studied Foreign Languages and Literatures at the University of Athens, majoring in Italian and Spanish literature and continued my education at the National School of Tour Guides, in Thessaloniki. Three years of intense classes and numerous tour-guides in Greece credited me with many fulfilling experiences.

I worked as a tour-leader in Italy, Check Republic, Serbia, Germany and Turkey. And in all these travels, I felt that getting to know a place was a lot more than sightseeing and museum visits. It was about the people and every day life, gastronomy and habits and all these particularities that make one country different from another. In Greece I have worked in various places such as Athens, Olympia, Mykonos, Thessaloniki, Meteora and Vergina.
