Greece and the Greek Islands

Greece and the Greek Islands

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.

The Greek culture is a unique mix of Western and Eastern characteristics and its people are famous for their hospitality, as well as their relaxed way of celebrating and enjoying everyday life. Mainland Greece and the Greek islands are equally worth visiting in order to experience the marvelous archaeological, historical and religious sites, rich culture and pristine beaches. Travellers have the chance to experience Greek cosmopolitan life, taste the thousands of traditional delicacies and spirits, attend local festivals, try out the great nightlife, adventurous expeditions and find refuge on one of the isolated and remote beaches or beauty spots.
