Greece, the sun-soaked ancient home of Olympia and the Acropolis, the birthplace of early western civilisation and where today, holidaymakers flock to its beautiful shores.
Under piercing blue skies lies a rich landscape bursting with wild natural beauty, ancient ruins, quaint rural villages, and chic coastal towns. At sea, you will find islands made popular by their white sand, pine tree-lined beaches, and ports harbouring yachts, and stylish, modern resorts. Tour the ancient temple of the Parthenon, walk down cobbled Byzantine footpaths, hike up hillsides, cycle through miles of green forests, wander through olive groves, and snorkel alongside sea turtles. With wreck diving, kite surfing, and rock-climbing, Greece offers just as much for the thrill-seekers as it does the sightseers, plus ample activities for families both on and off the resorts. Immerse in a social way of life, where restaurants fill with friends, coastal bars beat to a chic rhythm, and little coffee shops come alive with the chatter of locals. In the eateries, you will discover the many tastes of authentic cuisine, from crumbling feta, olives, and baked bread, to fresh fish caught in the nearby sea and mussels steaming in ouzo, or sticky sweet treats of Turkish influences. Encounter ancient outdoor theatres, modern art, and local markets teeming with crafts made by talented artisans. Greece is a true melting pot, of old and new, lively and laid-back, and rural and coastal; a destination where you are sure to find just what you’re looking for.
