Traditional feast in Patmos
This gastronomic trip features an unforgettable feast served in a traditional Patmos taverna. Your welcoming hosts are keen to show you the traditional dishes of their beautiful island in one of the loveliest classic hillside villages.
We begin at the port of Scala for the scenic coach ride to the hills. The island, one of the northernmost in the Dodecanese, is made up of three mountainous parts, linked by two isthmuses at the centre.
Patmos feels off the beaten path and esoteric, thanks to its unspoilt natural beauty, picture postcard villages, stunning vistas and sacred sites. We drive through numerous fabulous villages – but be sure to look down for incredible views of the Aegean, from which Patmos rose on the orders of Zeus.
At least that’s according to Greek mythology and who are we to argue?
Greeted by the scent of wildflowers we take a short stroll to the taverna where the tables are overflowing with traditional Patmian fare.
Local musicians and a dance troupe perform as we enjoy a wonderful meal.
We experience the authentic heart of the Patmos countryside.
