Traveling to Greece: Ioannina, 3 must taste dishes

Zelos' tips for traveling to Ioannina, Greece and 3 must taste dishes

Visit Ioánnina all year long and you'll never be bored by this northern Greek city! Take in the lively student vibe at busy cafés on the lakefront; wander the mystical winding streets of the old walled town, with the ruins of the minaret and charming bed & breakfasts and boutique hotels; you can even ride a boat on the lake to admire the view from the water! But, of course, we have our food recos, too. What to try in Ioánnina? Definitely, the local cheese, metsovone, a hard or semi-hard smoked cheese is a must (it goes brilliantly with our cheese pairings, too)! Ioannina has an olive variety called Konservolia that's worth trying and goes great with a local dish,  alevrópita, literally "flour pie" but more similar to a feta cheese flatbread with herbs. When I was there a few years ago, I tried this pie with a little bit of honey and it was a dream!

No plans to go to Ioannina any time soon? Don't worry, we'll deliver to your door plenty of the authentic Greek goodies you're craving!
