How should I drink ouzo?
Drink ouzo with cold water!
Ouzo is one of the favourite liquors of the Greeks, especially during summer time... But which is the right way to drink it?
First of all you have to buy a 100% distilled ouzo. If it is 100% distilled it will be written on its bottle. Shake the bottle so as to mix the alcohol and pour ouzo into a narrow glass until you fill its 1/3. Fill the glass with cold water and then one or two cubes of ice. Time to enjoy with good company!
Which is the best time to visit Acropolis?
Visit Acropolis early in the morning or after 4.00' pm.
Acropolis and the Parthenon can be really populated during the pick time which is after 10.00′ am, while crowds of tourists and groups of cruise travelers visit the sacred rock. In summer time, after 13.00′ the sun is at the highest spot and the heat is really unbearable.
So, don’t visit Acropolis from 10.00′ to 16.00′. Visit it early in the morning or after 4pm; just double check the closing time and make sure that you will have about 2 to 2.30′ hours to spent on the hill.
