Greek President Karolos Papoulias on Friday will meet with Pope Francis in the Vatican. Papoulias will travel to Rome to inaugurate jointly with his Italian counterpart Giorgio Napolitano an exhibition of Greek and Italian antiquities.
The exhibition is co-organized by Greece and Italy, as the Greek EU presidency is followed by the Italian one.
Papoulias and Napolitano will hold a working meeting, while Papoulias will also meet with the president of the Italian Parliament.
The Greek President, who will fly to the Italian capital on Wednesday afternoon, will be accompanied by Education and Culture Ministers Constantinos Arvanitopoulos and Panos Panayiotopoulos.
