GREECE TRAVEL GUIDE
What to eatFresh fish, grilled meats, dips like tzatziki or taramasalata (a fish roe spread), horiatiki (Greek salad), tiropita or spanakopita (cheese or cheese and spinach pie), olives, and honeyed sweets like baklava.
What to bring backA protective, blue-eye talisman (to gift to someone!), traditional komboloi (worry beads), Greek honey and dried herbs or tea from the mountains.
Fun FactThe country’s official name is the Hellenic Republic; the Greeks refer to their home as Hellas or Ellada. The name Greece comes from the Latin word used by the Romans, Graecia (Land of the Greeks), but some also associate it with famed local philosopher Aristotle who referred to the land as Graeci.
