Eat Like a Local in Santorini-Visit traditional food shops for: Santorini wines, ouzo, tsipuro, canned fruits and seeds for tomatoes, fava and squash. TIP: Bring a hardcase suitcase to stash the wine in and keep bottle intact. Search for: Kotsi (a delicious meat not found on menus but whispered to waiters who nod) and Loukoumi, ice cream with real sugared rose petals.

Loukoumi is a confectionery product with sugar as the main ingredient. The name “Loukoumi Geroskipou” is the first Cypriot name to be registered as a Protected Geographical Indication (PGI) in the European Union.

Mikrolimano Athens (by Marilena Salamanou )(a part of Piraeus)! Mikrolimano is such a scenic neighborhood with its small port and a hill overlooking it.  One of its advantages is that you can visit this neighborhood easily, by using the green line until Faliro. And then it is only 10 minutes on foot. In case you are hungry my favorite restaurants are: “Ammos” for fish and “Vosporos” for meat.

Coast to Coast Athens (by Marilena Salamanou)  “Stories from the city, stories from the sea”. I think it is the ideal soundtrack for this walk along the coastline. time to take a break and visit the coastline of Athens! There are kilometers of coastline from Faliro, and it keeps going to Elliniko, Alimos, Glyfada, Voula and even further!

Number one thing to know: when you go to a restaurant insist on local tomatoes in your salad! The cherry tomatoes grown on Santorini may be the best tasting tomatoes you will ever have.  Let the uninformed tourists eat imported tomatoes – you know better.

Pnyx Athens (by Dimitris Hall) one of the less visited ones, given its historical importance. It’s the place where the Ekklesia, the assembly of the Ancient Athenian democracy, had their meetings and where well-known orators of the antiquity captivated their audience.  Sitting around Pnyx it’s hard not to catch some of the direct democratic vibe. The stone vistas seem to have changed little in the interluding 2500 years that have transformed the rest of the city.

Pnyx Athens is where the assembly of the Ancient Athenian democracy had their meetings and where well-known orators of the antiquity captivated their audience. This historical landmark is rarely visited and is not as well-known as the others.

Eat Like a Local on Santorini-Honor the grilled eggplant!  On Santorini, grilled eggplant is treated with great respect. In most restaurants it will be presented like a flaming cherries jubilee without the flames and cut into bite size pieces by the waiter.
