Where to start with Greece? If there’s a country that can truly say it offers something for everyone, then it’s Hellas. History? It practically invented the term and let us not get started on the cultural, sporting, scientific legacies, its landscapes, islands, and blue seas.
These are some of the tangibles. The intangibles are just as impressive and by that we mean the people of Greece have an infectious joie de vivre. They combine the passion of the Spanish, say, and a historical legacy that perhaps only the Italians can match.
The Greeks are direct (if they like you, you’ll know it), proud of their country’s legacy and who will do their utmost to welcome travellers. Basically, the many facets of Greece on offer provide a treasure trove of possibilities. Whether its island hopping you’re into, the legacy of ancient Greece, its bustling cities or mountains, there’s something here for you.

Greece - where to go

It is the islands that first come to mind. The fabulous Cycladic islands (Santorini, Mykonos et al), Crete and the lesser known, more peaceful Lesvos and Kea. The Peloponnese is famous for its Mountain landscapes and coastline.
Athens is famous for, well… being Athens, with the Acropolis lording it over this most bustling of cities. If it’s ancient Greece you want then don’t forget Olympia and Delphi as well, but we haven’t even began to scratch the surface.
