Why Choose Greece for your Family Summer Holiday
Greek Mediterranean cuisine consists of meat, fish, vegetables, olive oil and pasta. You’ll find typical Greek dishes such as tzatziki, moussaka and stuffed vine leaves on many taverna menus, as well as more local traditional dishes and plenty of fresh fish. However, thanks to its flourishing tourist trade, it’s easy to find chips, burgers, pizzas, British food or international cuisine here too.
Culture & History
Greek Culture & History
With a rich history dating back to prehistoric times and fertile farming soil, it's no wonder the Greek local culture involves a lot of celebration. The villages in particular like to celebrate the patrons and saints of their local churches with traditional dances, music and even boiled goat.
Greece is home to many religious festivals, which relate to the Greek Orthodox religion that is practiced here. The biggest of these are held in Antimachia, Kardamena and Kefalos. The Easter-linked Shrovetide, for example, is traditionally celebrated with masqurade processions. Antimachia and Kefalos both celebrate the Assumption of Mary on August 15th with plenty of wine and the latter even serves boiled goat for the occasion. Saint John is celebrated in the same way on August 29th in Kardamena and Kefalos, while on April 23rd Saint George is celebrated in Pyli with horse races followed by more food and wine.
During the summer months of July and September, Greece comes alive with the rich cultural festival programmes of Hippocrateia and Alassernia respectively. The programmes include painting, sculpture, photography, theatre, poetry and music - most of which comes from local talent. During this time, the Hippocratic Oath is also re-enacted each Sunday at the Asclepeion.
