A Culinary Adventure
A Cultural Treasure Chest
Greece is home to some of the finest ingredients in the world. Sample them in a traditional Greek dish along with a glass of ouzo. Taste herbs and mountain greens you’ve never heard of, bread baked with olives, taramossalata and Greek salad, sun dried, grilled octopus and fish straight from the Aegean. Taste-test regional cheeses such as crumbling feta, honeyed soft cheeses and sharp, hard rounds. Try the widely known pastitsio and moussaka or taste the street food by eating a souvlaki with gyros and tzatziki in the bewitching alleys in the center of Athens. Whether you prefer something gourmet or something simple, a sensational gastronomic experience is guaranteed.
Socializing is more than a pastime in Greece – it’s a way of life. Squares are the focal point, where life unfolds collectively. Immerse yourself, whether it’s a coffee, a shot of raki, a chorus on the bouzouki or a local celebration, as Greece has a calendar bursting with festivals. Enjoy the melancholic throb of rembetika or lead the Zorbas’ syrtaki. Greeks are passionate and live life to the fullest, even at the most difficult times. The result is a country seemingly riddled with challenges, yet full of people loving life
Greece has endless cultural pursuits. Explore ancient relics and take advantage of the legendary Greek hospitality. Stand in the shadow of Acropolis. Step into the ring where Olympians first competed. Climb steps hewn out of stone to Meteora’s monasteries, perched atop towering rocks. Contemplate the oracle’s insights from the grandeur of Delphi, take in a starlit drama at an ancient outdoor theatre and be stunned by massive marble sculptures dredged up from the Aegean.
