With its buttermilk beaches, turquoise coastlines, white-washed houses and Mediterranean flavours, prepare to fall in love with Greece’s romantic history and charm.
While its surrounding islands are filled with character and leisure, the mainland is characterized by its history, ancient ruins and architectural landmarks. The capital city of Athens houses the famous Parthenon, Temple of Poseidon, Theatre of Dionysos, and the Acropolis and Acropolis Museum. Further up north, Thessaloniki is home to some of the most exquisite Byzantine churches and avant-garde music and entertainment scene. Delphi was once considered the centre of the earth, fringed by the majestic Parnassós Mountains – the site of the ancient oracle and Temple of Apollo. One of the greatest sights in Greece is, inarguably, the Metéora Monasteries, perched on the sandstone cliffs overlooking Kalambáka.
The islands off Greece welcome tourists to their cobble-stoned alleyways, vibrant tavernas and breathtaking vistas of the idyllic beaches below. The popular islands of Santorini, Mykonos and Corfu are photogenic with their dramatic cliffs, Cycladic villages, olive groves and fishing boats, offering vibrant nightlife and deliciously fresh seafood. Meander through the medieval streets and ancient ruins of the Old Town of Rhodes. Crete is more than your typical Greek island – home to the Palace of Knossos and wonderful hiking trails in the Samariá Gorge, make sure this island is on your list.
