Greece

The world just got out of -let’s just say- a rough spot in history, which means it is the absolute best time to celebrate life. And what better way to do so than exercise your right to freedom by traveling around the world and making the trip of your dreams come true? Of course, we take for granted that you are going to visit Greece and for that reason, here we present to you the ultimate Greece travel guide. Enjoy!



Greece, Travel Guide

Few countries have as much historical appeal as Greece. From the Parthenon to the peaks of Mount Olympus, the spirit of the ancient Greeks is tangible in its mythical landscapes and multitude of archaeological sites. However, modern Greece has an immediacy that reflects the locals’ live-in-the-moment attitude: the dazzling light, wide-open horizons and the cheap thrill of eating net-fresh seafood at tables plonked in the sand.

Nowhere conjures up carefree beach holidays quite like the Greek islands, whether you choose the white sands of the Ionians, including Corfu & Kefalonia or the bleached hilltop villages of Naxos the Cyclades, but the Greek mainland is too often overlooked — and few know to steer beyond its well-worn tourist trails. Do so and you’ll be duly rewarded by pelicans rising like a pink cloud above the silver sheen of the Prespa Lakes, eagles circling above the soaring canyons of the Zagori and black-robed monks chanting in Meteora’s monasteries, perched improbably on top of pillars of rock.

“Greece Travel Guide”

Greece remains a premier-league travel destination despite the battering its economy has received in recent years. Visit Greece and you’ll discover a country with incredible historic sites spanning four millennia, encompassing both the legendary and the obscure.

The Greek coastline is punctuated by superb beaches, while its mountainous interior urges you to dust off your hiking boots and explore. Yet perhaps its greatest riches are the Greek islands, ranging from backwaters where the boat calls twice a week to resorts like Santorini and Mykonos.

For anyone with a cultural bone in their body, Greece travel cannot fail to inspire. But the call to cultural duty will never be too overwhelming on a Greek holiday. The simple pleasures – swimming in balmy seas at dusk, talking and drinking under the stars, eating fresh, uncomplicated food – are just as appealing. Also, the genuine welcome you receive at the simplest taverna is enough to get you booking next year’s break as soon as you get home.
