Things to do in Greece

Eating out

Eating out

Even the smallest, most isolated Greek fishing village will boast a taverna where the day starts with coffee and ends with grilled lamb in aromatic mountain herbs. The popular resorts will have even more choice, including lots of cuisines to suit both British and international tastes. For seafood, any of the main Greek Islands, such as Crete or Kefalonia, will serve up some delicious cuisine.

Big cities like Athens, where you’ll find a good handful of Michelin-starred restaurants, will give you more sophisticated options and lots of familiar international favourites. Greek cuisine is very varied with lots of regional differences. Meze – a mix of appetisers – is a good way to sample the flavours on offer. Wherever you go look out for good quality cheese, olives, aubergine, courgettes, herbs, bread and yoghurt - the staple ingredients of Greek cooking.

Nightlife

Nightlife

Greece is known as one of the most popular European destinations when it comes to nightlife and nowhere is that truer than the Greek islands. Clubs are second nature to many of the islands and they have a wealth of experience behind them to ensure you have the best nights when visiting. Most are open from around midnight and stay open till 6 or 7 o'clock in the morning, so make sure to work on your stamina and remember to pack your dancing shoes.

Many Greek islands clubs, particularly on Mykonos island, Paros island, Ios island, Crete island, Rhodes island, Kos island and other popular destinations, have famous DJs from all over the world are invited to play their music to the masses of crowds that congregate inside. The alcohol is abundant in clubs and the thirst for fun is on a par with the many cocktails on offer.

The islands mentioned above are all amazing places to check out for vibrant nightlife and if you want to experience the quintessential party resorts among them then Zante on Rhodes Island and the beach parties on Ios start from midday and burn brightly long into the morning.

Nightlife in mainland Greece is also a huge draw for many people and the capital of Athens is a stellar destination for international music, fine-dining and atmospheric cafes, but it of course still provides bars and clubs aplenty.
