Greece is just like the photographs imply: cobbled streets and trees nodding with olives and glittering in the sun; perfect for a summer break or a budget holiday. From the islands of Crete, Mykonos and Corfu to hundreds of resorts on the mainland, Greece provides visitors with diverse locations to enjoy different kinds of holidays, from offbeat and peaceful to historical, sun-soaked and fun-packed.
Greek holidays are popular because the country is breathtakingly beautiful and its coastline is one of the longest in the world; intersecting with the Aegean, Ionian and Mediterranean seas. Many tourists are eager to visit this relatively small nation in southern Europe because of its ties to ancient history and to view its 17 World Heritage Sites, including the Acropolis of Athens (the Parthenon is a legendary building), the site of Olympia, which has been inhabited since prehistoric times, and the Old Town of Corfu.
Greece has a lot to offer visitors, no matter what type of activity appeals to you. From idyllic landscapes and golden beaches to ancient ruins and folk arts to golf, hiking and scuba diving there’s plenty to do in Greece. Fine dining is another attraction and the local cuisine will be sure to tempt your taste buds.
