A dip in azure seas, a sip of pungent ouzo and a trip back in time to oracles and gods – Greece is the very essence of the alluring Mediterranean world. With civilizations, heritage and history dating back thousands of years, Greece offers visitors breathtaking ancient sites such as the magnificent Acropolis in Athens and iconic Olympia. Also a vibrant modern nation with a dynamic population that loves to dance and sing – just a few minutes in a Greek taverna can be ample evidence of that! There are many mainland treasures from the spectacular Meteora monasteries to mythical Delphi.
Greece is synonymous with islands – from history steeped Crete, awe-inspiring Santorini and windmill-studded Mykonos and many other gems scattered across the Mediterranean Sea. Feast on freshly caught fish, grilled lamb stuffed vine leaves
and sweet baklava. Sip coffee in a harbour-side café as the fishing boats come into port, amble along country roads while families gather their olives and pat donkeys on their way to village markets with baskets laden with fresh tomatoes. Temple ruins perched on cliffs high above a sparkling sea, tiny crescents of perfect beach, a hillside of spring flowers, whitewashed houses with window frames of turquoise blue.
