Whether you’re a culture vulture or a fun- and sun-seeker, Greece has it all. It offers up everything from sandy beaches and neon-lit nightclubs to medieval citadels and ancient ruins. And that’s not to mention quaint mountain villages and seafront tavernas.
Crete is the biggest of the Greek islands, and home to some of the most famous archaeological attractions outside of Athens. Corfu is a lush, green paradise, while Rhodes comes up trumps in the sun stakes. Kefalonia prides itself on its picture-perfect scenery. Zante and Kos come with spectacular beaches and a 24-hour party scene.
Practically every Greek island is blessed with more than its fair share of beach. Amble along the coastlines and you’ll find everything from rocky coves and hidden caves to bar-lined promenades and stretches of golden sand as far as the eye can see.
With its sunny climate and beach-blanketed islands, Greece is one of the most picturesque spots in the Mediterranean and one of the most popular holiday destinations in the world.
