DELVE INTO EUROPE

Greece

Welcome To Greece

 Spectacular beaches, quaint villages, vibrant cities all with a sea salt tang

Greece has the best of the Mediterranean, at around half the price of everywhere else. It has the beaches, both on the mainland and its many islands around the Aegean and Ionian Seas. It has the beautiful whitewashed houses, the belfries and domes of the churches a ubiquitous sight against the deep blue summer sky.

 

It has the history, as the cradle of western civilisation, with amazing ruins from the Classical era ranging from the Acropolis above Athens to smaller ones like the evocative Portara arch on the headland above Naxos. Much of it is a rugged landscape, from the caldera of Santorini to the mountain fastness of Mount Olympus, where you could imagine the gods reigning over the world below.
