Italia has a tremendous amount of enchantment for us. However, Greece is also a profound favorite for us ...
Where to in Greece ...
I shall kick off with Corfu, located only 55km from Bari, Italia Port ... One can take in all the sights from the vantage point of any of the Tavernas on the Liston. Restaurants Aegli and Rex are wonderful spots to sample some of Corfu´s traditional specialties, which are heavily influenced by southeastern Puglia, Italian specialties.
The Corifots have introduced us to their glories of Greek cuisine while we have visited the islands of Corfu ( there are 7 islands ) for a break when we are in Puglia.
Peloponnese: The town of Nafphlion Port of Call is awesome with a stunner harbour and colorful boats, and traditional fishermen´s tabernas and quaint shops. The Odessey Bookshop contains books in English on the local history and geography. The town is packed with uncountable taverns and Tucked Away on a lovely flower filled narrow lane, is Hellas. The carte is the same for everyone and includes divine: domaldes which are stuffed grape leaves, moussaka, and roast lamb. Unforgettable.
Lunch in Lerna, which is a short drive from Nafphlion, is the House of Tiles, dating back 3.000 years and the birthplace of Constantine the Great. The third reason one comes to Lerna, is obvious, to eat ! Skewers of tender marinated lamb, Souvlaki stands filled with street food ... However, this is not just street food. This is one of the tasiest lunches you shall have in Lerna.
Santorini: If you could use only one word to describe Santorini, it would have to be breathtaking. No matter where you go on this island, you can find breathtakingly beautiful scenery and simple wonderful traditional Greek cuisine. Restaurant Tomato, Taverna Alexandria and Selene in Fira, overlooking the sea ... Need I say more ?
Have a wonderful weekend.
*** I could write a book on Greece ... however, these are just a very few of the countless restaurants I have been to in Greece.
Ciao, Have nice wkend.
