A land of myths and legends, a melting pot of sparkling night spots, gorgeous fresh seafood and sun-kissed landscapes; Greece is a fascinating and enchanting destination… and not just around its hundreds of islands.

"The people are arguably the friendliest in Europe; the islands arguably the most romantic; and the country itself is a cornucopia of culture, history and breathtaking scenery."

Ah, Greece. The name conjures thoughts of quaint harbour-side tavernas, hidden turquoise coves ringed by golden sands, unspoilt fishing villages and amazing archaeological wonders. And this is no artificial idyll created just for postcards: visit Greece and you’ll learn that in real-life it’s just as beautiful, absorbing and seductive.

For many, the Greek archipelago is the go-to destination with at least 140 inhabited islands flanking the mainland; but wherever you choose, you can take your pick of stunning sun-drenched beaches, crystal-clear seas, and breathtaking ancient monuments.

Creating special moments

  1. Capital Culture

    Capital Culture

    You can’t visit the capital without seeing its ancient attractions – the Acropolis and Parthenon dominating the city skyline, and the Temples of Zeus and Venus. Of course there are many museums too, the most recent being the long-awaited Acropolis Museum.

    Journey to the Earth's Centre
