Thread: Greek Isles Cruise

  1. #1

    Greek Isles Cruise

    Ok so the misses and I are flying into Venice next week for a few days and then a 1 week cruise to the Grrek Isles. Santorini, Mykonos, Crete, any cruise suggestions or anything particular I should see in the Greek Isalands or Venice?

    Awesome,.....just remember, they say bon jorno, you say bon jorno......St. Marks, obviously. It took like 700 years to build and another 300 to decorate the outside. We liked Venice, however, Florence, Rome, etc. have more obvious things to see. Venice has great seafood, and is more of a carnival, mall atmosphere to it, as in the ultimate. I wouldn't waste my money going to Murano to see glass, but that's just me. Spend the coin to go on a gondola. Venice I know the least about but thats what I do know, would love to spend more time in Venice. I am jealous. Have a good one. Here is the name of a seafood place we went to....Ristorante Bucintoro, if it's still there.

    With any luck, you'll be experiencing the Greek Islands like Peter Gallagher in 1982's[I] Summer Lovers.[/I] :D Like every hetero guy watching this flick back then, I was in love with Darryl Hanna.

    He's a Western NY cubicle plumber; Set him up with you and Stokes playing dueling Italian iron Chefs and his head would explode from the taste sensation!

    I just watched this clip and I'm trying to figure out what this movie is about.

    A guy becomes shipwrecked on the greatest island in the world?

    A guy wins the lottery and fulfills his every desire?

    A guy finds a magic lamp and makes three wishes -- one naked chick, another naked chick, and beautiful apartment on the Mediterranean?

    I need to see this movie, I think.

    LOL. Absolutely true. It's every guy's fantasy.

    I can't believe you never saw the flick. It'll be dated, of course, but check it out. Basically, the couple in the movie (Peter Gallagher and Darryl Hanna) is on vacation in the Greek Isles (Santorini, I think) and meet a gorgeous French archeologist (the late Valérie Quennessen). They spend the Summer experimenting with each other and enjoying the gorgeous island.

    he he. Love me some Greek food, Borgo. We had a few maintenance contacts with some Greek restaurants back downstate. Not only were the owners the friendliest, slap you in the back type of guys...but they would stuff our faces every time we showed up to do work. And even if I had just eaten, saying "no thanks" wasn't an option...lol

    Sheesh. I've only been up here for 3 years now. And at the rate things are going right now, I may only be around for another 6 mos. or so. ;)

    All kidding aside, Greek cuisine is one of my favorites. I don't think I could pick one style of cooking. I'd choose elements from Italian, French, Greek, Mexican, Thai, and Japanese.

    As I mentioned in an earlier thread, I love the simplicity of ingredients--garlic, olive oil, lemon, yogurt, honey, herbs--used to prepare an array of fish and meat dishes in Greek cuisine. I also love the abundant use of greens, which most folks would not associate with greek cooking. That's why it's such a healthy way to eat: Loads of greens and other fresh vegetables, with smaller amounts of pristine fish and meat. I could happily live on Crete, enjoying the simple meals which give them some of the longest longevity rates in the world.

    I love all Mediterranean food. Italian food is just my favorite as any other Mediterranean cuisine.
