The cradle of Western civilisation, Greece is steeped in ancient history, a rich culture and is home to the world-famous rock-top ruins of the Acropolis, perhaps the most iconic ancient monument in Europe. To the west, Olympia – spiritual home of the Olympic Games; the ancient citadel of Mycenae, the Mani. Scattered in the Agean sea are Sporades, Rhodes Mykonos, Santorini and many others.
Whether your lifestyle leaves you craving constant adventure or lavish relaxation, Greece is well-placed to cater to your every need. Sun-soaked days flow from one to the next under infinite blue skies and a sparkling sea dotted with islands of white sand and green palms. Discover ancient Byzantine footpaths, venture into volcanoes, swim with dolphins and sea turtles, or explore lush forests. Meander through verdant olive groves, charming villages and prehistoric petrified forests.
Greek cooking puts most 100-mile diets to shame – Greek cooks draw many of their famously high-quality ingredients directly from their back yard. Basic ingredients such as feta and olive oil are ubiquitous across Greece, but produce and cooking styles vary across different regions, making your travel here a culinary adventure.
