Summer is still here

September marks the arrival of the autumn, but that is only on your calendar if you are in Greece, where the sun keeps on beaming from above, the sea keeps on casting its blue and green spell on people, and the atmosphere keeps on dressing in dazzling red and orange clothes throughout the day.
 
This month is ideal for discovering the beaches of Attica and giving into their magic; for taking a short or long escape into the feast of nature at the area of South Pelion; for relishing the gifts of the god of wine, Dionysus, as it is time for the harvest; for following the invisible threads that bind together three majestic monasteries which are part of the list of the UNESCO Heritage Sites in Greece.

The gifts of Dionysus
