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.

How long to spend in Meteora?

I will be in Greece, staying mostly in the Athens area. There are some offshoot trips I want to do, and one of them is Meteora.

Is this truly doable in a day trip from Athens, or is it a good idea to spend a night or two in the area? I want to make sure I don't have loftier expectations than what is possible for seeing it...

Most fires in Greece were started ‘by human hand’, government says.

This has already caused many cancellations due to fear being created by exaggerated reporting which the Media takes pleasure in! The problems here are next year's bookings as both Rhodes and Corfu are main stream tourism destination for Brits and Germans accounting for many millions.

UNESCO Sites Near Athens

I decided to narrow down my list to UNESCO sites in Athens to see. I will be here long enough, and I plan to prioritize the 2 or 3 I really want to see, and then see if the rest happen.

Here's my list:

- Acropolis in Athens - could probably spend a day here - seems like there's a lot to see
- Delphi - I am hoping to be able to do Delphi as a day trip?
- Meteora - is this possible on another day trip?

Did I miss anything? I know I want to do Acropolis and Delphi, not sure I will have time for anything else.

Why is Milos the Island of Love?

I have seen people refer to Milos as the island of love.

I am planning a trip and maybe going to Milos next year.

I know that it is beautiful, and you don't need to be in a relationship to enjoy it. I have never been here- I am trying to visit some places in Greece I have never been.

Any advice on what to see?
