Tom Hanks, Barack Obama, Ios

Barack Obama and his wife Michelle have been in Greece since Friday, with the former US president arriving in Antiparos under extreme secrecy and accompanied by at least 30 American agents.

They arrived at noon on Sunday in Paros by private flight. According to Proto Thema, it will be accommodated in the villa of Tom Hanks, with whom they were travelling.

The guests of the Hanks couple will stay in Antiparos until Tuesday, June 20, as two days later, the former American president is scheduled to attend the SNF Nostos Conference 2023.

He will discuss ways to strengthen democracy and the importance of supporting the next generation of leaders together with the President of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation, Andreas Dracopoulos.

This is the second time that Barack Obama has visited the Cultural Center of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNFCC). In 2016, during the visit as part of his administration, had delivered a moving speech from the stage of the Stavros Niarchos Hall.

Cruise to Ios

During his vacation in Greece, Barack Obama is a special guest, if nothing else, and Greek passport holder Tom Hanks couldn't help but show him and Michelle Obama around the beauties of the Aegean. The couples left on a boat they rented from Antiparos bound for the waters of nearby Ios.

Of course, along with the boat of the two couples there is also the discreet escort of a Coast Guard vessel for the safety of the former planet lord.

At the same time, the day before yesterday the four of them went on a mini-cruise with a private boat and swam in isolated beaches of Antiparos.

Will the Obamas attend the wedding of the "billionaires"?

In the last few hours, there have been reports that the former American president and his wife attended the wedding of the billionaires in Kastellorizo, on Saturday, June 17.

The billionaire Andreas Liveris married his son, Anthony to Amelia McKinnon, with famous business names from America, Australia and Greece as guests, as well as well-known politicians, with whom he is connected by friendly ties.

Obamas close friends with Hanks

Hanks and the Obamas are not vacationing together for the first time as they're close friends.

Four years ago, on Stephen Colbert's last show, the Oscar-winning actor joked about vacationing in French Polynesia with Michelle and Barack Obama, Bruce Springsteen and Oprah.

The famous actor did not hesitate to describe funny incidents that he experienced on the island during the holidays with the equally famous vacationers.
