Eating out is a way of life in Greece – the typical Greek taverna has tables out, is cheap and Greek dishes are delicious.


Greek line dancing is still very popular even amongst young people. Here some CELT trainees dancing during a Christmas party

Ideal holiday – a restaurant – a small hotel just behind it and the beach two steps away


Table by the sea – very common along the thousands of miles of Greek coastline. Great after a swim or just to enjoy a sunset and a cold drink.
