Greece has some of the best preserved ancient sites in the world and has so much to offer all the family. Whether you are looking for a relaxing holiday in teh sun or yuo are an avid "culture vulture" in search of archaeological sights, Greece holidays have it all.Eating out in Greece:
Eating out in Greece is an important part of Greek social life and is enjoyed by everyone. As a result, Greece boasts a vast selection of eateries with a host of stylish restaurants serving international cuisine, friendly tavernas offering traditional and local cooking, and lively cafes and bars. Greece caters for all tastes!
Choose from a mouthwatering assortment of traditional meat, fish and vegetable dishes - but don't leave without sampling an authentic moussaka [layers of vegetables and mince cooked in the oven and topped with a creamy white sauce], or a Greek souvlaki [kebab]. Try baklava, nut filled, paper thin layers of glazed pastry soaked in honey.
To round things off, good food deserves good wine which can be found in abundance in Greece. If you dare, try "retsina", the locally made wine. Ouzo is the drink that Greece is famous for and accompanied with a little plate of snacks and a glass of water, is a favourite way to wind down.The Language of Greece:
During Venetian and Ottoman domination, the Greek Othodox church preserved the Greek language which, for a long time, was a mixture of katharevousa and dimotiki. Today, current storytelling and everyday conversation is in kafeneia with singers, writers and poets keepting dimotiki alive.
