The location of Greece as a bridge between the East and the West led to millennia of invaders and the tradition of philoxenia, known as hospitality to travellers, continues up until today from the times of Homer. In fact, Zeus was also called Zeus Xenios for his role as the protector of travelers. Philoxenia is an inextricable part of the hospitality tradition in Greece. The actual meaning is …love for strangers… It is a generosity of spirit, a kind of the best “what is mine is yours” attitude. The concept of hospitality, shown from the courtesy and the generosity of the locales, is evident all around the country. Are you in the mood for experiencing the authentic face of Greece? Deeply proud of their philoxenia, Greeks will show you their generosity from the first moment.
