I thought I would visit Greece this year with the sole purpose of trying different regional cuisines. Any ideas? Here is what I have so far:

- I want to experience some Modern Greek food and from what I understand, there are some great finds in Athens. I don't know quite where they are (recommendations appreciated), but I thought I would start with the street food!

- Crete and Ikaria - both are known for their unique and healthy diets.

- I know just about every island and region has their own charm - I only have a few weeks so I want to select the best of the best. Thanks!


I have always been intrigued by the food scene at Thessaloniki! It seems like it would be kind of a combination of traditional and a bit international, too, maybe a little bit like Athens. I heard the restaurants were great in general in that city.

Visiting Church of Saint Demetrios in Santorini

One of my favorite places to visit in Thessaloniki is the Church of Saint Demetrios. I heard he is the patron saint of the city?

When I went, I only just walked through and enjoyed the look and feel. I don't know much about it.

Would love to hear your opinions of this place, I will be passing through Thessaloniki in a few months and am hoping to catch a church Service. Last time I went, I just visited, there was no service going on.

Athens, Rhodes and Milos among the 20 best holiday destinations in Europe in 2023!

Always inspiring and informative editorials from the Tornos team!.... Athens in my opinion has just only just become popular in the past 20 years or so! ...... Now I remember Rhodes being a preferred destination 50 years ago when I began working in Tourism from good ol'London town!..... Milos is a new kid on the block!..... Fabulous breathtakingly beautiful beaches!

Art Galleries in Kythira?

I heard there are some great galleries in Kythera because the island is filled with artists.

Is this true? If it is, can you recommend any?

I found information for two places online – Follow Your Art Gallery in Kapsali and Zeidoros Art Space, also in Kasali.

Any info you have about these places and anywhere else is much appreciated.

Spas in Athens?

I am passing through Athens in a few months – I will be in Greece for a while. I won’t be in Athens long, just a few days, and I think I want to visit a spa.

Does anyone have any recommendations? I am interested in more of like a Hamam experience, and maybe get a massage too.

I Googled some possibilities, but don't know anything about them: Hammam Baths Athens - Melidoni 1, Old City Hamam & Spa - Athanasiou Diakou 1, and Al Hammam Traditional Baths - Tripodon 16.
