[MUSIC] Hello. I am Henley Vazquez. Welcome to Luxurious Discoveries presented by Regent Seven Seas Cruises. I am a travel writer and consultant to luxury travelers of Indagare. This work takes me around the world looking for the places and experiences that will inspire others to take a journey and explore. One of the most popular Mediterranean destinations is the Greek Islands, where the days somehow feel longer and the people seem to know the secrets to living a healthy, long life Corfu's an enchanting island. And the old town of Corfu, with it's narrow streets and old certifications, is a nesco world heritage site. There are many things to discover during your visit. Of course, Greece is famous for it's wines and olive oils. Tour the Theotoky Estate. See all the steps required to make olive oil, from harvesting the fruit to pressing and extracting the oil. The estate still uses the traditional press for a slower process, along with modern machinery. The Theotoky Vineyard also grows and harvests grapes and produces and bottles its own white, red, and rose wines Located in a valley about 30 minutes from Corpu town. The estate offers guided tours, including olive oil and wine tastings daily from 9 am to 1 pm. Following your tour, take a look in the old farm building that has been converted into a library. It's the passion of owner George Deotaki, and you can look at maps, engravings, and journals some dating back centuries. The fresh seafood available at the casual tavernas dotted all over the island is consistently outstanding. One of my favorites of these restaurants is Tarverna Agni named after Agni bay which it overlooks. A local family owns the taverna and the daily menu features vegetables from their garden and seafood caught fresh every morning. There's also a barbecue grill and traditional greet and meet dishes such as staffato, a beef stew. Consider trying the local [UNKNOWN] made from native kumquats. At [UNKNOWN] there's never a need to rush, the owners will invite you to lounge on the beach or relax on their shady terrace. Of course the ultimate way to experience the Mediterranean is by cruise ship and traveling could never be easier than with Regent Seven Seas Cruises. Instead of paying separately for flights, hotel rooms, on-board restaurants, entertainment, and gratuities, this components are covered under the all inclusive Regent experience. Plus their itineraries are custom planned, so you visit multiple destinations during every voyage. It takes the stress out of traveling.
