Lipsi: the island of the Dodecanese

Chiesa col tetto blu, Lipsi, Grecia, mare

In Lipsi there is no airport, no hospital, very few inhabitants and when I took these photos in 2018 (I didn't have the Reflex yet), mass tourism had not yet arrived at the end of June. People come here to be in peace, explore the island and enjoy the blue sea along with the splendid Greek sun. The silence is broken only by the sound of the sea waves and, when you move a little away from the beach, also by the bells of the goats. They are the characteristic sounds of these parts of Greece. They will make you fall in love ... Just as you will fall in love with these splendid little churches (photo 1) with blue roofs that are scattered almost everywhere. Some are open, others closed, but the best part is climbing a hill, walking for a while and finding these buildings perfectly preserved over time ...

Here, in Lipsi, you can get lost in the village streets in search of a restaurant where you can enjoy a delicious Mediterranean meal. While there aren't crowds of other Greek islands, some evenings you may already find some full restaurants, especially the more popular ones or those with sea views (not necessarily the same ones). But breathing this peace and quiet of the place after a panorama of the city like this (photo 2) is always worthwhile.

Photo 3: these are the colors of Greece, the real one. The blue of the sea, the sky and the houses.
The hotel that welcomed me for a few days with its splendid sea view. I don't advertise, but those who have been here will certainly recognize this charming hotel in Lipsi

Photo 4: food photography could not be missing in a place where eating is a pleasure and where Mediterranean cuisine is incredibly enriched with local products.
No need to waste time describing the photos. If you want to appreciate all this there is only one way: come here and eat!
