Some of Fotostrasse’s post for your inspiration
Athens is full of surprises, from neighborhoods steeped in history to charming alleyways, beautiful squares, fantastic monuments, and forgotten ancient ruins. One such gem is the district of Anafiotika, located on the northeast side of the Acropolis hill, under the shadow of one of Athens’ most famous landmarks. Anafiotika brings a breath of the Aegean to the heart of Athens.
If you’re looking for a unique way to experience the beauty of Lisbon, we have a tip for you. Be sure to check out the Amoreiras 360° Panoramic View! Located on the last floor of Amoreiras Shopping Center, this viewpoint offers one of the highest perspectives in the city, sitting more than 170 meters and on the top of a hill.
One of the first things I do when planning to visit a city is to find out if there is a place where it is possible to see it from above. The Skyline Sao Paulo is one of the most impressive. As someone who loves photography, taking pictures of the destination's skyline...
The Turning Torso opened to the public in 2005 as the tallest building in Nordic countries. Still, its height differs from what most people think when remembering the structure. Its twisting design is clearly the main feature, and it lends enough inspiration to architects all around the globe.
We saw the Wehrmacht Graffiti during a short trip to Copenhagen in the fall of 2022. We went to have a coffee in the Meatpacking District and had a location saved on our Google Maps. This was it.
Athens is so unique that we cannot imagine any other city where you can find an ancient roman tomb inside a Zara store. We expected to stumble upon ruins in Athens since it’s a quintessential historical city. But not in a clothing store.
The Igreja do Sagrado Coração de Jesus, known in English as the Church of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, is a gorgeous brutalist church in Lisbon. This beautiful-looking church was built in the 1960s and is categorized as a national monument today.
Papier Tigre Paris is more than a stationery shop since they create, design, manufacture, and distribute a gorgeous collection of paper products around the world. These stationery products are innovative in style, and in a world of mass-produced products without any soul, they do things in a different way. A better way.
Milan is one of the leading destinations in Europe and the world, and many people visit the city every year. Most of them end up seeing the same places over and over again. Since our idea with Fotostrasse was always to bring excellent people to fantastic places, we decided to come up with this list of unusual places to visit in Milan.
The Panathenaic Stadium in Athens: A visit to the Marble Stadium that hosted the first modern Olympics
The Panathenaic Stadium is a must see tourist destination in Athens and a unique architectural destination since it’s the only stadium in the world built entirely out of marble. But what makes this place stand out from everything that we saw in Greece is that this place is where the first modern Olympics Games were hosted back in 1896.
Milos beaches are definitely on the top of the list of best beaches in Greece. There are 75 beaches in Milos and around 151 km² (58 square miles). Milos was one of our main stops on the Running On Waves South Aegean cruise in late September 2021.The island is the 5th...
When we had the pleasure to travel through the Greek Islands with the Running on Waves ship, our first stop was the not so famous (but one of our favourite) island of Syros. After walking in the sun for hours, we decided we deserved some excellent food. That was when...
Agios Nikolaos in Megalochori is a small chapel located on the island of Santorini. But this small church isn’t like any other church, and it was built in the rocky cliffs that overlook the crater and the Aegean sea below. Its bell tower has the traditional triptych of bells that can be found all around the Greek islands, but this feels more unique due to its location.
Delos is a small strip of land near Mykonos, but don’t let its small size fool you since this island is one of Greece’s most important archaeological, historical and mythological sites. The entire island is an excavation site, one of the largest ones in the Mediterranean, and it’s a fantastic experience to walk among the ruins and see how the ancient Greeks used to live.
The windmills of Mykonos are one of the most iconic features of this beautiful island in the Aegean sea. From almost anywhere in the village of Mykonos, you can spot the windmills, and it’s one of the first things you saw when you arrived in the island harbour. And they look gorgeous, painted all white against the blue sky.
Along a windy road between the port city of Skala and the monastery in Chora is where you are going to find the sacred Cave of the Apocalypse, where according to the Christian tradition, St John had the visions that became the Book of Revelation.
