This illustrated travelogue depicts in a succinct but meaningful way the myths, history, monuments, beauty and contemporary life of one of the liveliest and most enchanting Greek cities.

A city which has become a symbol for its contribution to the Greek nation’s struggle for independence, a symbol of courage and determination but at the same time a symbol of culture and creativity.

I would like to thank, from the bottom of my heart, all those who have contributed to the realization of this rich publication which enables our visitor to become truly acquainted with the city we both love and cherish.
