Athens was photographed in the most modern and creative way by popular German instagramers in a collaborative initiative dubbed “Athens Tourism Partnership”.
Four of the 10 most popular German Instagramers, lived the Athenian experience and their photos were shared with their audience, cumulatively exceeding 1.2 million followers.
