Despina Zefkili is editorial director of www.athinorama.gr, the website of athinorama, the leading city guide of Athens, as well as of Athinorama Travel magazine, Alpha Guide (the only greek guide rating the best hotels and restaurants in Greece) and www.athinoramatravel.gr, the travel sections of DESMI EKDOTIKI, a pioneer in the lifestyle approach of travel journalism. She has worked as a travel editor since 2000 in the publications of DESMI EKDOTIKI (including Ef Zin, Alpha Guide, Athinorama Guides) and has contributed articles about Greece to foreign media, including Time Out Guide for Athens.
She has had an X-large range of different travel experiences around the globe, but her heart remains with the boutique hotels and personal guest houses in the Greek islands and mainland, a network which she has followed closely since its birth. Having interviewed leading global travel gurus, she hopes to live to see the day that a more creative, dedicated and sustainable vision for local tourism is shared by the Greek state and institutions. Given that her... second self is an art critic, the only art she put higher than travel is... contemporary art!
