Our lunch was a delicious meal of local specials like grilled octopus and lamb kleftoki (a stew like preparation with feta cheese!). Live musicians lined the streets on our walk towards the Ancient Agora – our next stop. The Ancient Agora was the forum or marketplace in ancient Greece. This was the ...
