Good morning from Greece,

All my Greece visitors as Dave correctly said have the ISP address which 
here in Greece is Europe/Athens, so i have now way to distinct the 
cities of the visitors.

Is there any way to pinpoint the visitor's exact location?

What is now proved was at first only imagined!
