Greece and its thousands of islands is often called the cradle of Western Civilization. Home to the Greek Gods, Plato, Socrates, and Aristotle, visiting the mythology steeped ancient sites of Athens or the idyllic islands, Greece is a destination like no other.
Greece is essentially like one huge sun-bleached museum, starting with the Acropolis, which is absolutely unmissable. Fans of ancient architecture will admire the Doric columns and temples, plus of course the center piece which is the magnificent Parthenon. Other top spots around the country are the Acropolis Museum, the Hephaestus Temple, the pilgramage spot of Delphi on the sides of Mount Parnassus, the Corinth Canal, Ancient Corinth, and the Epidaurus Theater.
Mount Olympus beckons you to climb it to see where Zeus sat on his throne and Hades ruled the underworld. It's one of the most famous mountains in the world.
Visit the iconic island of Santorini for its picturesque postcard views, traditional gleaming Cycladic homes, and the photographic whites and blues of the churches and houses against the blue of the sea.
The islands of Greece are truly bewitching and will delight tourists with their white sand and perfect blue water. Visit Mykonos for a chic party vibe or hike the Samaria Gorge in Crete, see Zakynthos's beaches and sunbathe on Pathos. Each island is individual and magical in its own right. Explore Byzantine footpaths, see volcanoes, forests and olive groves, wander perfectly charming villages and look out for for sea turtles and dolphins.
Feast on Greek olives, crumbling feta and fresh seafood, celebrate it all with a glass of cold Ouzo.
May, June and September visits will ensure you wonderful weather without too many crowds.
