From the ruins of the Acropolis to the deep blue of the Aegean; Greece promises island charm and ancient history.

Greece has been the country to head to for hedonistic delights, heady cultural destinations, and historical ruins for quite literally centuries, but it's also one of the most relaxed, laid back and tranquil places to visit in Europe. Whether you want to be touring ancient ruins, stopping by museums in between meze platters, or clubbing in Mykonos, Greece has it all. If you're after pampering and the feel of sand between your toes, however, you also can't do better than a beach holiday or island hopping trip to this magical country. With pretty harbor towns, cliff side villages, friendly tavernas and beachfront bars, Greece's islands are second to none when it comes to learning to live slowly and unwind in a picture perfect location. Secret coves, crystal clear waters, whitewashed walls and uninterrupted sunshine are all waiting in Greece.

Travel Tips & Advice for Greece

Greece Activities

For anyone up on their ancient Greek history it should come as no surprise that Greece is as much a party destination as it is place of archeology, ancient ruins, and pretty fishing villages. Hedonism is its blood and the Greeks like to party as much as their forebears did. Be sure to head to Athens, Mykonos, Kos, Ios and Malia in Crete if looking for nightlife. Mykonos is by the far the most glamorous of the lot with a St Tropez vibe combined with a laid back island attitude.

Greece Food & Drink

Greece is as famous for its food and drink as it is for its ancient ruins and bucolic beaches. From salty feta, local olives, and fresh fish to its famous yoghurt and exceptional honey, Greece is a cornucopia of fresh produce, locally sourced ingredients, and hearty, delicious fare. Lamb moussaka is a popular dish across the country, while the island way of life lends itself to delicious seafood and fish dishes, and Kalamata on the mainland is home to the world’s best olives.

Greece Attractions

Greece has so many great places to visit you’ll be desperate to go back as soon as you’ve made it home. Santorini’s famous blue domed buildings stand sentry over the deep blue of the Aegean Sea, while Adelphi, the Acropolis and the Parthenon hint at what life was like for the ancient Greeks. The Heraklion Archaeological Museum is one of the country’s top sights, Samaria Gorge in Crete is a hiker’s dream or if it’s rest and relaxation you’re after simply lap up the sun on Preveli Beach.
