Context: I am going to be starting a D&D campaign in a world based on ancient Greece, rather than your classic western european medieval fantasy land. This will probably not be the only question regarding everyday life in that place and period, as I am no historian.

If a band of regular folk are travelling throughout the ancient Greek countryside and they happen upon a village where they decide to stay for the night, where could they stay for the night? Would they be able to find a room to rent for the night, food and drink aplenty and local to gossip with?

If so, what typical food would they be able to find there? What would have made up the carbs in your everyday meal back then? Was there meat every day? What would they have washed it down with?
