Meze stories

"Meze or mezze (/ˈmɛzeɪ/) is a selection of small dishes served as appetizers in parts of the Middle East, the Balkans, Greece, and North Africa. In some Middle Eastern and African regions where it is present, especially predominantly Muslim regions where alcohol is less common, meze is often served as a part of multi-course meals, while in Greece, Turkey, and the Balkans, they function more as snacks while drinking or talking.[1][2]-" Meze - Wikipedia In Greece, no one cares about the definition - just taste meze, to shape the definition yourselves!

Vytina | The last explorer
10-80
Vytina is one of the most famous Peloponnese large villages, not only because of its major role during the Greek War of Independence, nor because of its trading pivotal point; Vytina has much more secrets to reveal! It is the birthplace of the least known Greek anthropologist- explorer, Panagiotis Potagos, who competed some of the most famous explorers of others countries, like Great Britain, without any financial support from his country. After his two major missions in Asia and Africa, he managed to publish one of his two manuscripts. The other one was lost after his death… Part of that second manuscipt, believed to contain parts & pieces of Kolokotronis memories about the War of Independence, was found while restoring the local library. Alas, the manuscript is written in code and you are the only hope to help crack it down!

Mycenae | Inside the Cyclopean Walls
10-120
Mycenae comes to us out of the mists of time. It's featured in the poems of Homer, yet you can still walk its ancient paths, stand by the graves of kings from over 3400 years ago and gaze over the rolling hills of Argos from the megaron, where ancient warriors once gathered. The powerful city of Mycenae was the heart of the Mycenaean civilisation that dominated Ancient Greece between 1600BC and 1100BC. Said to have been founded by Perseus himself, Mycenae was the center of many Greek myths and legends. One of them is the mythical beings Cyclopes - the one-eyed giants - brought by Perseus from Asia to construct the large fortified walls. Once you pass the famous Lion Gate, the ancient citadel surrounded by the Cyclopean Walls starts unfolding. Then, it is up to you how deep in the history you will let yourself be immersed!
