Pure Escape Disvover the Greek Myth


Editorial

Always walk Under the vertical Sun “Without boundaries, without bounds (or terms)” (Odysseas Elytis)

Though every country, state, city, and town all have a history behind them, it sounds interesting to learn about and experience a country that is rich in more than 3,000 years of existence. Greece has a long history that is well portrayed in the country's museums, locals, architecture and gastronomy. More than two millennia of shared heritage and Greek-Italian relations strengthened the bonds between the two countries and obviously, Greek-Italian Chamber of Commerce has a special role in cultivating and expanding these ties. Not by chance, Greece has slowly become one of the most popular tourist and vacationing spots in the world, often ranking within the top 20 countries to visit. We talk about a country that is home to Athens, Crete, Santorini, Rhodes and hundreds of islands along with ancient structures that give glimpses into the lives of past societies. In 2013, Greece had a record of 17.5 million foreign visitors with even better predictions for 2014. Since the country is home to 227-inhabited islands, it is in the cards that you will find that one special beach that allows you to escape and truly enjoy yourself. Not all beaches are created equal in Greece as some have white sand while others have red or black sand, pebbles or rocks covering the shores. There are also jam-packed beaches, desolate beaches, green or dried, rocky and steep or shallow waters easily accessible,… Cyclades with whitewashed buildings and various ancient structures, Sporades, Ionian islands, Dodecanese each island group with its own beauties and peculiarities, but also destinations in mainland Greece, have a different way to tell a story about culture, hospitality (philoxenia) and gastronomy. From the islands to hundreds of resorts on the mainland, Greece provides visitors with diverse locations to enjoy different kinds of holidays, from offbeat and peaceful to historical, sun-soaked and actionpacked. Greece is the place to be as Greek locals are known for being generous, personable, and extremely helpful, so through them you can better understand the greek culture, lifestyle and experience philoxenia in full effect. Greece is actually one of the most affordable countries to visit today. Of course, some parts of Greece will be more on the pricey side, but you can always find affordable hotels, food, and activities of high quality. Food is a definite necessity, but in Greece food is a part of life and everyday culture. If you know anything about the Greek culture, you are probably well aware that Greeks are often praised for their traditional dishes and foods. If you're a foodie at heart that isn't afraid to try new cuisine you'll find out that the variety of high quality food in Greece is off the charts and regional cuisines across the country are world-class. The climate in Greece is all but perfect, with over 300 days of sunshine and the typical Mediterranean seasons. Aside from the ideal weather, Greece is also relatively crime-free, so as to be a safe choice. The Greek-Italian Chamber of Commerce presents its members which have an active presence in the tourism sector with excellent services, offering a broad range of potential selection. Our Chamber was founded in 1952 aiming to promote commercial exchange between Italy and Greece. It's an “Association of the Italian Chambers of Commerce Abroad” member (76 chambers in 52 countries, 140 points of presence and over 24,000 member companies) and facilitates commercial activities of associated companies and SMEs. Its core business is to support and assist Greek and Italian companies interested in developing mutual trade collaborations.

Santorini Selene Restaurant

'Selene' restaurant was established in 1986 in Fira, Santorini by Yiorgos and Evelyn Hatziyannakis. Our aim was from the very start, to show and promote the local products along with the local cuisine hoping that this will enable us to transmit to our guests a taste of the island's culture. The success that we have had all those years not only within Greece but also worldwide, has encouraged us to continue with cooking lessons, catering for weddings and conferences and various gastronomical events. Since 2010 'Selene' restaurant has moved location from Fira to Pyrgos. Pyrgos is one of the most beautiful and well-preserved villages of Santorini built around a medieval castle located in one of the highest points of the island offering magnificent views. What is mostly important for us however is that Pyrgos village, and the restaurant's location especially, lies next to the famous vineyards and the valuable farmland of Santorini. This whole move and the experience gained from all those years, urged us to establish along with the restaurant a new space: Selene meze & wine which operates

as taverna and wine bar as well as a cafe and delicatessen. There, our guests will have the chance to taste a variety of Santorini and Greek wines and choose from a simple/traditional food menu. In 2013, which is "Year of Gastronomy" in Santorini, will also be organizing a variety of events, such as presentation/tastings of Santorini wines and products along with our well-known cooking courses. What is more, next to the restaurant is located the cultural village Santorini of the past so that our guests will have the chance to make associations of the past and the present gastronomic culture of the island. The restaurant upstairs continues in the same path, as it has done the last 26 years, Nikos Boukis is the new chef and there will be some small creative changes in the menu. Our aim is always to work on local products and create new, interesting and tasteful dishes and ideas. We want to thank you all for supporting us all this time and we are waiting for you in Pyrgos.
