Holidays on Ithaca in Spring 2018
Sunday 1st - If this doesn't look and feel like Spring, I wouldn't know what would. With Easter coming up for Greece next week, restaurants are beginning to re-open their doors for the season. Sleepy little villages will soon be abuzz again with acitivity after a long wet winter.
Below - The Vathy Secondary School put on some delicious fare today at the Square. The food Bazaar was brimming with pastries and desserts.
Monday 2nd - Last night Rementzo opened it's doors for the season.
As we get closer to Easter most of the restaurants in the northern villages will be either open or preparing to open. Our sleepy little bayside villages once again transform into buzzing hubs of acitivity.
