Greece holidays are about millennia-old historic sites and sun-drenched coastal towns with whitewashed buildings against the deep blue sea. Tavernas serve fresh seafood, pies, and traditional favourites like moussaka, souvlaki, dolmades, and keftedes wherever you go.
The legendary Acropolis stands atop a hill in Athens. Spend the better part of a day exploring its museum and the Parthenon—a great way to start your Greek history lesson. Then, at sunset, take a cable car up Lykavittos Hill for spectacular city views. Take the time to explore the Plaka neighbourhood’s maze of cobblestone streets, where cafés and markets coexist with ancient ruins. Not far from Athens, Delphi has the Temple of Apollo and the Delphi Archaeological Museum, allowing you to experience ancient Greek civilisation’s magnificence. Continue your explorations at Meteora’s rock formations and Olympia’s old Olympic stadium.
The most difficult decision is the hundreds of Greek islands to visit. Whether you want to go island hopping or stay in one place, Vibes Group UK experts can help you plan the perfect itinerary. It could be Santorini in the Cyclades islands of the South Aegean Sea, with its sunsets, black lava beach, ancient ruins of Akrotiri. Mykonos is known for its cubist architecture and the buzz of trendy restaurants and nightlife. The clifftop village of Hora on Folegandros is one of the most picturesque you’ll see, with vibrant blue doors and pink bougainvillaea. And the island of Paros promises beautiful beaches and a magnificent old church and Byzantine museum.
Explore Minoan civilisation on Crete, the largest of the Greek islands, by visiting the Palace of Knossos. This island is also home to mountains, beaches, and wines.
Then, on the northeastern Peloponnese coast, visit the romantic town of Nafplio or the quiet and luxurious Porto Heli for an authentic taste of “siga siga,” the Greek attitude of slowing down life.
