Meet the Romans in Greece

It is the best place in town to appreciate the beauty of life in classical Athens and the ingenuity of ancient Greeks and Romans. Plus, it offers a splendid view of the Acropolis and the opportunity to meet the Winds.

Leonidas Argyros

A grumpy man with a PhD. He is fascinated by words; when he sees them forming beautiful sentences he feels like an apprentice wizard who just produced fancy potions out of cauldrons full of frog legs and tears of bats. In his spare time he roams about town or watches anything produced and narrated by Sir David Attenborough, an inexhaustible source of similes. In Canada, he learned to love the cold, but he is much happier working in Athens.
