1. Fourni (Chora)
Chora is the capital, main port and also the most popular village of the island of Fourni. An unspoiled village with whitewashed houses built on tiers above the harbor, narrow quaint alleys and small squares. It is well-known for its easy-going way of life and the peace it offers. In Chora you can wander through the narrow streets, enjoy the atmosphere and be part of the local lifestyle. The heart of the village beats in the main square where tourists and islanders sit under the shade of the tall plane trees drinking Greek coffee, tsipouro or orange juice, the island's most famous soft drink.
The waterfront is lined with small traditional taverns and restaurants where you can taste lobster pasta and delicious rice-stuffed goat. Fourni is famous for its local cuisine and for the best lobsters of the Aegean. The major event is the big feast that takes place every year on August, 15th with plenty of food, drinks, traditional music and dances. The feast lasts all night long and offers a unique experience to all those who are not familiar with that kind of Greek feasts, called “panigiria”. Chora in Fourni is a small paradise of Greece that still remains untouched by mass tourism.
