Situated on the southernmost tip of the Balkan Peninsula and with its islands sprawling out across the Aegean, Ionian, and Mediterranean Seas, Greece’s ancient roots have undoubtedly influenced the language, philosophy, politics, sport, and art of the western world.For many visitors to Greece, their first glimpse of the country is the vast metropolis of Athens, whose modern, bustling streets are topped by the ancient Acropolis. While further North lies the sacred pilgrimage site of Delphi on the slopes of Mount Parnassus, as well as the intriguing Byzantine monasteries of Meteora, built precariously on the top of rocky outcrops in the Thessaly Plain. In the far northwest of the country, the old stone villages of Zagorohoria provide a captivating rest stop for hikes through the Pindus Mountains. While on the east coast of the picturesque Peloponnese Peninsula to Athens’ south is one of Greece’s most beautiful cities, Nafplio, renowned for its 18th-century Palamidi Fortress.But for many visitors, a trip to Greece is all about the sun-drenched islands. Whether you opt to explore the picture-perfect towns of Santorini in the Cyclades, the natural beauty of the Samaria Gorge on Crete or the UNESCO World Heritage listed old town of Corfu, Greek island life is all about warm nights, rustic cuisine and enchanting surroundings.
