Classic Holiday Destination in
One of the oldest and best established tourist destinations, not only in the
Mediterranean but also in the world, Greece has held a "magnetic" attraction for visitors from around the world for
many decades. Who hasn't dreamed of a Greek islands holiday or a honeymoon on Greek islands!? Greek islands could
be called 'the Caribbean of Europe', and
But apart from the islands' beauty, it is also Greece's rich culture
and archeological heritage that attract millions of visitors annually to just about every corner of Greece. Very
few people haven't heard of the Acropolis, the Parthenon, Temple of Zeus, and many other Greek's historical
monuments. There's plenty to explore on your Greece holiday or your travel around Greece!
Considering the aeons of history and beginnings of most of the scientific
world as we take for granted today, Greece has much to offer the visitor. A country with considerable diversity,
from mountain villages to island harbour towns; the true and original "metropolis" of Athens, through to many
historical sites that are pivotal to the cradle of our modern civilization. All this makes Greece travel a

The Greek people are very accommodating and have a special enjoyment
of life interwoven with excellent Mediterranean cuisine, fresh air and sunshine on the many thousands of kilometres
of coastline combined with a rich traditional culture and folklore.
Holidaymakers have been travelling to Greece for decades, and the
long Spring & Summer season has attracted visitors from most corners of the globe, each and every year. With
pleasant warm weather already settled in from early March, one can enjoy the earlier Spring season, full with
flowers and wild herbs, many weeks earlier than in the northern parts of Europe!
In the more southern locations of Greece such as Crete, Santorini and
Rhodes, late Winter escapades with the possibility of sunbathing and even swimming on near empty beaches and
crystal clear waters of the Mediterranean, has become quite popular with the savvy holiday maker.
Greece is great for shopping and dining as well. While travelling you
can enjoy diverse shops and restaurants throughout the country. Pick up souvenir custom Greek t-shirts or grab an
authentic Greek dinner while visiting.
