The Impact of Information Society and Cyber-Culture in Greek Tourism Phenomenon


  • Maria MANOLΑ


First, in this paper we will investigates the influence of one of the most important Greek film directors, Angelopoulos, in all national, European and worldwide tourism thru the eyes of cinema camera and Greek cyber-culture. Initially, his award-winning action and the content of his most important work, has always been united with Greece promotion and touristic development. The paper traces how, in the context of information society, his filmography can be an example of good practice for touristic promotion and development and how this kind of cinematography can be a more dynamic section of Greek touristic economy. Second, this paper aims to investigate how ancient drama which flourished in Greek antiquity still represents a portal of touristic attraction and development. Ancient Greek tragedians as well as Aristophanes’ comedies magnetize and attract tourists and students from Europe and the whole world. In addition, touristic destinations where tragedy flourished have a huge number of views from tourists. Finally, we present a case study that analyzes the meaning of literary tourism and examines the prospects of its development in Greece. Through conceptual analyzes in two examples it attempts to present the wealth of literature in regard to the style of writing, values and meanings. The aim of the study is to examine the ways that will help the development of tourism through literature as well as to attract potential tourists to these island destinations.
