A trip to Greece can feel like a trip back in time as you pass from ancient sights like the Acropolis Parthenon to the temple of Zeus. And after seeing everything you want to see on one island, travellers can move onto the treasures of the next, often just a short sail or ferry ride away. While exploring the ruins, one of Greece’s many beaches, with their gleaming turquoise seas, is never far off, and neither is a picturesque view of white washed houses and tiny blue domed churches. If seeing the birthplace of the Olympics has lent inspiration, adrenaline junkies can take off for some water sports action, instead.

After a long day wandering crumbling ruins and towering monuments, travellers can sit down to a traditional dinner in a coastlining taverna, of local wine, crusty bread, fresh seafood and olives and the other sun drenched Mediterranean flavours Greece has to offer. Greece’s energetic nightlife in Greece will leave some visitors struggling to keep up with the locals, as they dance until dawn.

Comments, reviews and questions by other travellers

Greece is no doubt my favorite European country. I love the ancient architectures mixed with the friendly people. I also love the Mythos beer and gyros, which can be found at almost every street corner in Athens.

I have been on a few cruises that left from Athens and made their way around Crete, Mykonos, Santorini and a day in Turkey. These cruises allow for a more relaxed view of the country with stops almost every day at a different location. I like cruises because it allows the traveller to do their vacation at a relaxed pace. It also allows for a lot of wiggle room during your stay.

You could contact one of our Greek Travel Specialists: if you're looking for a package rather than a destination?
