In addition, a number of special events will be organized: A Greek night of entertainment with dinner, a special one-day cruise to selected Greek islands, an archaeological tour of Athens and a one-day visit to Delphi.    Athens with its long history of democratic debate is an ideal setting for this conference. Athens is the historical capital of Europe, with a long history, dating from the first settlement in the Neolithic age. In the 5th Century BC (the “Golden Age of Pericles”) – the culmination of Athens’ long, fascinating history – the city’s values and civilization acquired a universal significance. Over the years, a multitude of conquerors occupied Athens, and erected unique, splendid monuments - a rare historical palimpsest. A large part of the town’s historic center has been converted into a 3-kilometre pedestrian zone (the largest in Europe), leading to the major archaeological sites (“archaeological park”), reconstructing – to a large degree – the ancient landscape. Athens's multi-faceted sights, attractions and city life appeal to diverse groups of tourists, where shopping, dining and clubbing experiences offer a wide range of choices and prices.   Please submit your paper (email only) to: by the 15 March, 2015   IACuDiT is an independent and non- profit  international association which values creative, ethical and progressive action aimed at the improvement of global hospitality and tourism  research on cultural and digital issues.
