Very interesting....

I wonder if there is actually any treasure buried there? †As many times as the Royal Family had to flee, it seems possible. †And one of the suspects was an officer there, maybe he had inside information....



  Well,they've heard wrong!!!The treasure was LIVING there!!

Thank you so much, and yes, we will be looking forward to the photographs.  Did you find it very delapidated? What is it now, a museum?

I too would love to see these photos!  My question is: where is the royal cemetery in relation to the palace?  Is it possible for people to visit the graves of Queen Sophie etc.?

I found this relatively recent article (in Greek - 15/11/05) that has photos of the Tatoi grounds as they are today. Apparently the Greek Ministry of Culture is trying to find the funds to fully restore the gounds, which are currently in a sorry state.

I do not think that it is possible for a visitor to visit the summer palace of Tatoi as as far as I know they is restoration work going on and they are still cataloguing what was found inside.

To compensate here is another site with a few pictures from Tatoi:

Sorry for my delay, but ever since I got back from my trip to Greece I have been trying to settle into a new job and various other personal matters.

I personally visited Tatoi twice in September, and I was not the only visitor, as there are many bicyclists roaming around as well as hikers/walkers.
Secondly, as far as I could tell, there was no restoration work going on.  If there was any, it probably lasted 2 weeks,in classical greek fashion.
Will post my personal pics this weekend,
thanks

Hi, I visited Tatoi for the very first time last May. No works seen, all buildings were in a total mess. Found particularly interesting the swimming-pool in the back of the main house. Nature is so very beautiful also.

There's something I want to ask. Some years ago, there was an article in a greek magazine about Tatoi. Thought there was something said anout an underground corridor connecting two buildings there and there was also a foto of it, semi-destroyed from water. But when I was there and talked about it to one of the ''guardians'' he loughed at me and said surely he would have heard of it, but never did. Does any of you ever heard of it?

Clemence,

I bought a two-volume book in Greece, translated "Timeline of Tatoi", a work chronolizing the history of Tatoi up to the present day.
In this book, it mentions that there was in fact an underground passage between the main palace and the kitchens, which are right across from it.  Apparently some looters got in through the kitchen and got into the palace via this underground passage.

Thank you very much. Would it be too much to ask for the title of the book in Greek? I am in Athens and I hope I can get it. Also, if there's anything you'd need from Athens, I'd be glad to be of help.

Francesca.

PS: After Acropolis, again I have a proof of how ignorant about the places they have to know well are some people in Greece. I'm even more ashamed  Sad

Book is XPONIKO TOY TATOIOY, check with Leader Books.  Among the branches I know about, they have one in the area of Kipseli (where I bought mine, on Fokionos Negri street), and also at Agia Paraskevi (Agiou Ioannou Street).  It is quite pricey though, 150 Euro, but worth it if you can afford  it.
