Introduction to Greece - Destinations

With beautiful beaches, spectacular scenery and four millennia of ancient culture Greece remains a popular destination for travellers. The homeland of Homer, Aristotle and Sophocles, Greece is a journey through classical civilization, with archaeological wonders from Athens to Crete.

Athens is home to many ancient structures including the Acropolis and the Parthenon, which are both UNESCO relics. Towering above is the Metéora Monasteries, one of the world’s most striking religious sites. The inspiring Mount Olympus, home of the ancient Gods, is ideal for hiking.

The varied Greek Islands include the party island Mykonos and the relaxing and stunning scenery of Corfu and Santorini in the Aegean Sea. Greece’s most sacred site is Delphi, which is where the oracle once answered Apollo’s questions in the temple.

The Greek countryside is filled with cypress groves, vineyards, olive trees and spectacular coves with white sand and wild mountains.

When's the best time to travel to Greece - Destinations

The autumn and the spring are the best times to visit Greece as the weather is milder and the crowds are calmer. For those wanting to visit the cultural landmarks in Greece it is not advised to visit between November and March as some of the tourist attractions are shut then.
