25 Stunning destinations in Greece

In addition to mainland Greece, thousands of picturesque islands are sprawled throughout the Aegean and Ionian Seas of Greece. Mountains provide a backdrop to magnificent ancient ruins, fantastic villages and lovely beaches. Here are 25 of the most stunning destinations to enjoy while in Greece.

Santorini

Santorini, with its whitewashed houses and blue-domed churches, looks stunning set high on the cliffs of a volcanic crater. Don’t miss the sunsets from Oia Castle.

Acropolis, Athens


Greece’s capital Athens is home to famous landmarks such as the grand 5th century BCE Acropolis citadel and Parthenon temple.

Symi island


Colourful neo-classical houses cling to the cliffs that overlook the harbour. This stunning area attracts movie stars, among them Tom Hanks.

The Archangel Michael Monastery of Panormitis


As your boat sails up to Panormitis, you’ll see the entirety of this fantastic Venetian-style monastery. It houses artefacts and a silver icon of the Archangel.

Patmos

Patmos was voted one of ‘Europe’s Most Idyllic Places to Live’ by Forbes in 2009 and it’s easy to see why. Its crowning glory is the Monastery of St John, set high up on a hill.

Delphi ruins

This is one of Greece’s most revered archeological sites. Located high on Mount Parnassus is the 4th-century BCE Temple of Apollo, once home to the famous Oracle.

Sissi's Palace, Achilleon


Sitting on top of a mountain in Corfu is Sissi’s Palace. Surrounded by beautiful gardens, its classical style has an Austro-Hungarian air about it.

Vikos Gorge

This awesome gorge is said to be the deepest in the world. This incredible spot is surrounded by quaint villages, Byzantine monasteries and kilometre-high walls.

Dirou Caves

Stalactites and stalagmites surround you as you meander around this underground world, through narrow passageways and areas with lofty ceilings.
