Olympic Flame_Acropolis
The Olympic Flame for the 2014 Winter Olympics has shone on the Acropolis hill since Friday afternoon when the torch relay across Greece ended.
On Saturday, the sacred flame which was lit last Sunday at Olympia, the birthplace of the Olympic Games, will start its trip towards Russia’s Sochi.
Before reaching the Acropolis in Athens, the flame crossed some 2,000 kilometers across Greece over the past few days, spreading the messages for friendship and peace.
The cauldron at the shadow of the Parthenon temple on the sacred rock was lit with the symbol of Olympism by Manolis Katsiadakis, the Secretary General of the Hellenic Olympic Committee which organized the six-day Greek leg of the relay.
It will be illuminating the Acropolis hill overnight, before being carried on Saturday to the Panathinaic stadium for the hand-over ceremony to the Russian organizers of the February 7-28 Games.
At the venue which hosted the first modern Olympic Games, Greeks plan to bid farewell to the Flame with a moving ceremony, sending their best wishes for good games at Sochi to the athletes and spectators.

Crete: the Resort of Europe....one of the most hottest destinations for 2013!!

It may be one of the largest islands in the Mediterranean, but Crete offers plenty of intimate experiences, plus plenty of reasons to party -- the island is celebrating a century of union with Greece in December 2013.



It may be one of the largest islands in the Mediterranean, but Crete offers plenty of intimate experiences, plus plenty of reasons to party -- the island is celebrating a century of union with Greece in December 2013.
Away from the blissful beach resorts, still extremely good value thanks to the country's recent economic woes, chilling of another kind is in full swing.
Crete is developing a reputation as one of the region's finest wine producers, with a growing catalog of extremely drinkable native grape varieties: Vilana and Vidiano, Dafni and Kotsifali, Mandilari and Thrapsathiri.
The best bit? Many of the vineyards are wedged between languid towns where predictably good tavernas dish up uncomplicated, but classic, Cretan fare for a handful of euros.
