Delve deep into history
The first Ancient Greek civilisations formed nearly 4,000 years ago. Today, you can still see many of their original features and learn about the famous myths and legends. Think well-preserved ruins, crumbling amphitheatres and out-of-this-world acropolises. Don’t forget your camera – these scenes are worth capturing!
Blue Flag beaches
There are nearly 500 beaches across mainland Greece and the Greek Islands that have been awarded the Blue Flag status. This means they have pristine sands, clean water and first-class facilities. When visiting Greece, you’re bound to stumble upon one of these sun-kissed beauties.
Gorgeous Greek cuisine
Gyros, a spiced kebab, is pretty much the dish of the day here and can be picked up in most restaurants. If you’re heading to a laid-back taverna, opt for fresh Greek salads topped with crumbling feta, grilled souvlaki with lashings of tzatziki and hearty, homemade moussakas. Not forgetting the gooey baklava for dessert!
