At Melissokampos, you can learn how and why the ancient tradition of apiculture (beekeeping) remains alive and well in Greece. In ancient Greece, quality honey was used not only for its undeniable nutritional value, but served for medicinal purposes as well. Today, you can purchase honey as an edible souvenir from your Greek travels--a jar of honey will also make a sweet gift for someone you love back home. Pick up a jar of thyme honey, acacia honey, or sunflower honey; you'll find many other options on the website. When you stock up on the "food of the gods," as honey was known in Greek mythology, look for some natural cosmetics, peanut butter, cereal bars, jams, and many other products. A visit to Melissokampos represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Maroussi itinerary planner to plot your vacation.
