“Greek Summer is a state of mind… This year, enjoy your Greek summer wherever you are…” is the message of Greece’s new tourism campaign that will be sent out to the world this year, following the Covid-19 crisis.
In 2015 Jamie Oliver visited Ikaria, also spelled Icaria, a Greek island in the Aegean Sea. That visit was part of his research into the important role of the food people eat in longevity. The residents of the island are known for their longevity and their nutritional habits.
During his visit he tasted local cuisine and specialities such as fried mullet, herb pie, pumpkin pie and broad beans with fennel.
Ermioni is a small port town in Peloponnese. The beautiful and traditional architecture it is its main characteristic. The town is easily connected by ferry to Piraeus and the islands of Hydra and Spetses that makes it so popular to visit, especially during summer.

The submerged town of Pavlopetri is situated in shallow water between the beach of Pouda at Viglafia (near Neapoli) and the islet of Pavlopetri, opposite the island of Elafonisos. The architectural remains of this prehistoric town, visible at a depth of about three meters, were discovered in 1904 by Fokionos Negris. In 1967 the famous oceanographer Dr. Nicholas Flemming of Southampton University visited the site and subsequently published the first survey of the submerged settlement. A year later, a team of archaeologists from Cambridge University undertook the first systematic underwater survey of the ruins. In 2009, an on-going programme of exploration and excavation was begun by the University of Nottingham, the Greek Culture Ministry’s Ephorate of Underwater Antiquities and the Hellenic Centre for Maritime Research.
