Greece Travel Guide
For first-time visitor and lifelong fans alike, Greece is a country that always has plenty of new discoveries to be made. Whether it’s ancient ruins, beautiful beaches, traditional villages or idyllic sunset cocktails, it’s a destination that rewards every visitor in a unique and special way.
When most people think of Greece, they picture hillside olive groves, rugged terrain, white cubed houses, and stunning beaches, all set against a backdrop of clear blue skies and warm azure seas. Greece has some of the best weather of any European destination, owing to its southerly position and proximity to the Middle East and Africa. For more information about when to visit, check out our guide on when to visit.
Though perhaps not as renown for its culinary delights as its European siblings France and Italy, Greece does have some of the best food in the Mediterranean and offers a healthy selection of dishes to suit all tastes: deliciously crisp salads, fish caught fresh daily, a variety of meat dishes and some superb dessert options. We’ve never gone hungry, that’s for sure!
