I find the Metaxas a little harsh. except the seven star variety.
I prefer the Cretan Raki; Nearly every Villager distills his or herown and it is usually given free with anything you buy, be it a meal or just a beer, retsina or cochino.
I should of mentioned the great beaches, rocky walks and for those who like to go wild, the variable night life; ranging from the traditional Tavernas and Raki-bars with tradition music to the inevitable disco and girlie bars with 'pop' music.
Ah Happy days soaking up metaxas a palate saviour from cheap greek red wine dining .The great goat meat in the tavernas with my German girlfriend from Schlewig-Holstein and an Argentinian couple from Mar del Plata. Saw many of the ancient sites and relics in museums which helped inspire my interest imn 1/72 models.
