2004 Map

Exploring Parga, once a small Venetian seaport on a dangerous, precipitous coast, which is reminiscent of Amalfi/Italy, with a citadel embellished with the Lion of St. Mark set on top of a conical hill, above a labyrinth of narrow streets.

Matt: Tracing the origins of the River Styx (ancient Potamos Akheron) and visiting the Necromanteion of Ephyra, the entrance to Hades, where the ancient Greeks practised necromancy with the oracle of the dead.
