It follows a young Australian tourist who happens to be flicking through his photos at the airport, when a Greek man sits next to him and catches a glimpse of his photos. After introducing himself, he says “You’re an Athenian too!”.The campaign is aimed at showing a side of Athens that tourists themselves find interesting, not the predetermined aspects of the city like its big monuments.Looking at the growing feed, lots of graffiti, underground bars and scrumptious food photos are making the rounds, showing beauty is in the eye of the beholder. “We know that learning about history is one thing, but living it quite another,” the campaign says. “We recognise the Athenian living in every one of you.”The 20 stamps provided also help bring together the campaign, with illustrated slogans like ‘Stay Calm and Come to Athens’, ‘Talk Greek to Me’, and ‘I have Athens All Over Me’. Most of the slogans mix English and Greek letters to make the stamp more authentic.See the campaign video here: find out more about the competition and how to enter, visit You an download the Athenian app at the iTunes appstore or at Google Play for free. last_img
