The least expected and by far most memorable were the family that ran the place. Kind, welcoming, attentive, made a soaringly good meal for me alone. No one else was there.on top of that, as friends of the famous archaeologists that have worked Troy, the son wrote several historical books and signed the one on Troy. Better by far for its scholarship, structure, and content, these books are actually the best surveys I have seen of a site.
So serendipity of warmth and grace are the reasons to be pleasantly surprised by this place closest to the site and across the street from the museum.
