Mother of western civilization, birthplace of philosophy, democracy and the Olympic Games, Greece has always been one of the world’s most popular travel destinations. Due to its geography and long and exciting history, the country has attracted travellers from all backgrounds and tastes. Situated in Southern Europe with the mighty Athens as its capital. Surrounded by the Aegean, Ionian and Mediterranean Seas, Greece has more than 8,500 miles of coastline and hosts around 2000 islands and islets.
