Greece is one of the world's most popular tourist destinations, ranking in the world's top 20 countries. Visitors on Greek vacations are drawn to the country's beaches and reliable sunny summer weather, its nightlife, historical sites and natural beauty. The nation's terrain is just as varied as its architectural heritage: idyllic beaches, towering mountain ranges, wine-producing valleys, vast stretches of olive orchards in the south, and lush forests in the north. Greece's historical sights are just as varied; the country is littered with just as many medieval churches and castles as classical ruins and temples.
Athens – The Ancient and Modern City
No one should miss Athens with its wealth of archaeological treasures, its neighborhoods, its museums and art galleries, its restaurants and its port, Piraeus. The Acropolis is the most important ancient site in Athens and visible from almost anywhere in the city, an imposing hill in the center of Athens. On the summit of the Acropolis is the Parthenon, an ancient temple dedicated to the goddess, Athena Parthenos. Below the Acropolis is the Ancient Agora which is a wide expanse of ancient Greek remains. The Panathenaic Stadium which was built in the 4th Century BC as a venue for athletic contests is oval-shaped and was a running track with stone seating all around it. The stadium was restored in 1895 in order to host the 1896 Olympics with seats for 70,000 spectators. The Plaka is a self-contained area and an old historical neighbourhood of Athens It is also the site of many open-air restaurants to enjoy on your Greece vacation. In the Plaka, you can experience street musicians, flower sellers and much more.
Mykonos belongs to the Cyclades group of islands. Although it has acquired a reputation as a fun place in which to spend time on travel to Greece, there is much more to Mykonos than its nightlife and excellent beaches. The main town of Mykonos, also known as Chora, is very picturesque with its maze of narrow streets and harbour. The streets are full of shops, boutiques, art galleries, cafes, bars and restaurants. The island has quite a few beaches offering all the expected facilities. At one end of Mykonos town is Little Venice known for its picturesque medieval houses which literally hang over the edge of the sea. The sunset here is renowned. There are several good museums in Mykonos which include the Archaeological Museum, the Folklore Museum, the Aegean Maritime Museum and the Agricultural Museum.
Santorini is what you might imagine an archetypal Greek Island to be like with its white-washed houses and churches and blue sky. This very beautiful island was formed from a huge volcanic eruption which created a large lagoon in the middle of the island. It is consequently surrounded by steep cliffs on three sides. It still has an active volcano, the only one in the world whose crater is in the sea. Santorini has a reputation as being a romantic island with its crystal-clear waters. You can add to this the island’s amazing sunsets. Akrotiri is an ancient city dating back to the Minoan civilization (2700–1420 BC) which was rediscovered only 50 years ago when it was found under the volcanic ash from an earthquake in the 1600’s BC.
