Acropolis of Athens

Towering above the city of Athens, the peerless Acropolis of Athens is one of the most important and iconic monuments on Earth. Containing a cluster of ancient ruins, a visit to the Acropolis is an absolute must if you find yourself in Greece’s capital city. The most notable building on the monolith is The Parthenon. Completed in 432 BC and dedicated to the goddess Athena, the image of The Parthenon’s majestic white columns and inexplicably perfect proportions is synonymous with Greece and is considered one of, if not the planet’s most culturally significant structures.

You’re welcomed by Captain George and his crew with a shot of local Ouzo, before setting sail across the Aegean to the secluded bay of Pserimos, where – after having a splash in the crystal clear water – you’ll be served a lunch of barbequed pork, salad and homemade bread. From there you’ll move onto Kalymnos, an island famed for its sponges, and Platti where you’ll get another chance to have a dip in the warm sea water. The journey back to Kos Town has a few surprises that you’ll have to find out for yourself on this unmissable voyage

Aquaworld Aquarium

Greece holidays aren’t all geared towards history buffs, sun-seekers and ravers, they’re also for family holidays in Greece, and if you’re a parent then you can’t go too wrong visiting Aquaworld Aquarium in Hersonissos, Crete. The Aquarium – one of only three in Greece – specialises in local sea life and reptiles and gives visitors a real ‘hands-on’ experience. The staff are friendly, well-informed and willing to give you time, as are the snakes, lizards and tortoises, who’re ready to pose for all your photographs.

Santorini

Officially named Thira, Santorini is an island group that’s a relic of what was probably one of a large volcanic eruption. With its towns set atop the islands cliffs, Santorini offers the visitor beautiful sunsets; the most popular of which occurs at Oia, a town that claims to be the oldest continually used fishing dock in the world. From the ocean, the views of the island itself are truly breathtaking; with white-washed buildings standing precariously above the sea on jagged rocks. Your trip wouldn’t be complete without sunshine and in Santorini you get it in abundance. In fact, the island is one of only two European locations categorised as having a hot desert climate.

why should i visit greece

Home of the Gods, the natural beauty of Greece certainly doesn’t pale in comparison. Made up of 1,200 habitable islands, the Greek way of life can differ in each harbour, but what remains constant throughout is the country’s dedication to great food, stunning beaches and lush scenery.

Indulge Your Taste Buds

No Greece Holidays would be complete without sampling some of the country’s best-loved dishes. From Greek salads made using the freshly picked olives and tomatoes, to honeyed soft cheeses, and marinated souvlaki eaten straight from the grill, the possibilities are endless. Wherever you choose to holiday in Greece, many tavernas use recipes passed down through the generations, so you’ll be tasting a piece of local history.

Soak Up Some Mediterranean Sun

With miles upon miles of stunning beaches, Greece Holidays are a sun-lover’s paradise. Whether you want to sit back and relax, or try your hand at some water sports, there’s plenty to explore. Crete alone boasts 650 miles of pristine coastline, while Rhodes is renowned for its record-breaking levels of sunshine, so when it comes to finding the perfect sun spot, you’ll be spoilt for choice.

Discover Ancient Worlds

A haven for history buffs, Greece is home to some of the world’s most iconic architectural sites. In Olympia, visit the spot where the very first Olympic Games was held back in the 8th century BC, making sure you leave time to explore the tree-shrouded ruins of the gymnasium, the leonidaion and the Sacred Precinct of Zeus. Crete’s Palace of Knossos is another must-see. Situated 5km south of modern day Heraklion, this evocative site was once the centre of Minoan civilisation, encompassing an enormous palace and vibrant frescoes.

Go Island Hopping

Away from the mainland, the Greek islands offer visitors a truly authentic experience.
