From "Greek Isles in the Summer" Magazine If you ever have been at Mykonos, the heart of the Cyclades islands, you probably have noticed the two neighbouring islands, Syros and Tinos. But I am sure you haven't been interested in them at all. They are both half an hour away from Mykonos but let's leave Syros for now, and talk about Tinos, the one at the right. Tinos is actually the ideal place for lovers of nature, architecture, art and traditions. It is one of the largest in Cyclades islands, a place for pilgrimage, unspoiled and unaffected from tourism. The island houses some 600 chapels and thousands of dovecotes all elaborately decorated. The dovecotes are two storey towers decorated with geometric designs, which are mainly built on land slopes at an angle to protect the entrances from wind to help takeoffs and landings of the doves. The decorating patterns are ... (more)

Eating and Drinking in the Greek Isles

From "Greek Isles in the Summer" Magazine This is not an article to inform you of quality restaurants but rather to explain you the type of places you can dine while visiting the Greek isles.   Eating out in Greece is a national pastime and a leisurely pleasure. Whether dining at a local taverna or an elegant restaurant, Greeks take their time over food. The native cuisine is delightfully uncomplicated and quite different from what's found in Greek restaurants abroad. Much of the cooking relies on simple seasonings and fresh meat and vegetables.  Greeks like all the other Medite... (more)

The Ancient City of Perge

Its importance also lies in the fact that the ruins of the Roman city provides a very complete picture of the past, thus making it archaeologically invaluable. However, even if you are wondering how an archaeologically fertile site could ever interest you, you should ... (more)
