Luxury in Ancient Greece
This documentary follows the debate about luxury which convulsed ancient Greece from the beginning of the classical era.
In Athens, it explores the role of luxury in the beginnings of democracy - how certain kinds of luxury came to be forbidden, and others embraced. A simple luxury like meat could unite the democracy, and yet a taste for fish could divide it. Some luxuries were associated with effeminacy and foreigners. Others with the very idea of democracy.
Yet in Sparta, there was a determined attempt to deny luxury, and the guilty contradictions of this eventually brought what had been the most powerful state in Greece to its downfall.
When Sparta was replaced by the Macedon of Philip II, father of Alexander the Great, the absolute luxury of his court set new standards for luxury as political propaganda. Yet the guilty anxiety of ancient Greece could not be suppressed and still affects our ideas of luxury today.

The Official Site of Agistri island
Agistri is only 55 minutes from Piraeus and at a stone's throw from the island of Aegina.
It is a small heaven on earth situated at the Saronic Gulf, smothered in plants and trees, with pine trees "touching" its crystal blue waters.
The island's four communities (Megalochori - Skala - Limenaria - Metochi) are ideal for wonderful summer holidays and for relaxing, calm weekends.
The general image with this island presents is completely different to the one presented by other islands which are overwhelmed with mass tourism. Perhaps is one of the last few romantic destinations in Greece.

Luxury in Europe
The Old Continent is the cradle of the ancient world and its civilisations and is characterised by the interweaving of its different cultures over a small space of land. From the North Cape to Malta and from Ireland to Romania, Europe is distinctive for its sheer variety.
Compared with the wide-open spaces of America or Central Asia, Europe forms a complex confetti of countries. This, the smallest of all the five continents, is shared between 45 countries. Its diversity is a key asset. Its dynamic cultures, heritage and landscapes offer wonderful tourist opportunities. Northern Europe, in Germany, Scandinavia and the Benelux, is a place of rolling landscapes and modern, airy cities. Ireland and Great Britain boast lush green countryside and an inimitably ‘British’ style. Eastern Europe contributes Baroque cities and the poetic charm of its rivers, the most outstanding of which is the Danube. Mediterranean Europe, with its Greco-Roman, mediaeval and Renaissance remains, completes this picture of friendly harmony, framed by a sunny coastline.
