The Beautiful Tavernas of Greece

November 12, 2021 No Comments

Tavernas and Kafeneeos are the center of Greek life. They are embedded in Greek culture and history.

This is where people meet for a quick cup of kafe or to linger over a meal. No matter how small a village is, there is always a taverna or two. They date back to ancient times when men would sit and philosophize about life, politics, weather, and the like. In many places, especially in rural areas, rooms are attached for those who don’t want to venture far from the village square.

When we arrived in Athens, we were eager to have Greek food…alas, the city was in lock-down and the only thing we could do was get it delivered. If we ventured out, it was take-away. Delicious nevertheless, but the menu options were limited.

MY GREEK COUSINS!

Throughout our travels we made some stops at places – basically a night out, a drive through or a few days stay while we were waiting to fly home. These come to mind as I reflect back to our journey throughout Greece. The best part of being there were the family members we visited with and sharing the experience.

For a complete change of pace from the beautiful Aegean isles, we ferried back to the port of Pireaus, just outside Athens and drove several hours north to Livadia – our second trip there. Entering the city at 10:00pm was quiet and welcoming; happily, next door was a little taverna for our late dinner as we envisioned our trip around Livadia, Arahova, and Galaxidi, Greece.
