Walking in some seriously scenic routes? Embarking on a jeep safari; discovering the secrets of the planet’s healthiest diet; going on a wine-or olive oil- tasting tour; feasting in traditional panigiria; or attending open air concerts? Maybe even, just hanging out with the locals in a “kafeneio”, drinking raki and nibbling on black olives and matured gruyere?
