The essence of Greek Hospitality
Philoxenia literally means “being friendly to a stranger”, the Greek equivalent for the word hospitality; yet hospitality does no justice to the ancient Greek concept of welcoming and caring for all visitors coming to your doorstep. Treat them well and these strangers will become your friends indeed. Among the most popular monikers attributed to Zeus is Xenios as he was the proclaimed protector of all visitors in need, indicating that they had to be protected. The spirit of Greek hospitality can be found across the country, in every person who is or feels Greek.
