Greek Summer is a state of mind | Visit Greece

“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.

According to Marketing Greece CEO Ioanna Dretta, the new campaign is designed to send out a message of optimism and inspire the world to travel to the country whenever possible.

“Through the campaign we aim to create a lasting expectation. To build a new brand and create a desire (for travel) that can be fulfilled for all once the conditions allow it. The Greek summer will always be here,” Dretta said before the video’s screening.

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.    

He then made trahanas, whole grain cracked wheat, cooked with milk, dried in the sun .
