I have lived in a few parts of the world for a while and travelled to 4 out of the 5 continents so far. I have never found a place like Greece. It may not be a faraway and exotic country, but my Greece is the most photogenic.
When people think of Greece they think about a wide variety of things: Mediterranean culture, lifestyle, history and climate are probably the first things that come to mind. And then there are the historical parts of Greece: Delphi, Corinth, Mycenae, Knossos (Crete), Olympia, Thessaloniki, Athens, the Acropolis to name a few.*
Then there is Greek mythology: Zeus, Hera, Poseidon, Hestia, Demitra, Apollo, Artemis, Ares, Athena, Hermes, Aphrodite and many demi-gods. The different islands and areas are named in the myths and stories.
And to top it all off there’s Greek cuisine, which is rated as some of the tastiest on the entire planet. All in all, there are a thousand reasons to come to Greece, and not a single reason not to.
GREECE is a destination that is friendly to all levels of travelers.
The islands and coasts are dotted with resorts that can accommodate even the most luxury-minded traveler, while the more adventuresome can simply rent a scooter and zip around the coastal roads with the Mediterranean breeze teasing their hair.
The culture, history, food, and the people all combine to make Greece one of the ultimate destinations for any traveler, and it's definitely a country to come back to over and over again.
Athens is the capital of Greece the founding city of the Olympic Games and a city of culture, science and commerce.
Named after the goddess of wisdom Athena and it encircles eight hills within its borders.
The beautiful islands, the history, the coffee and the food. Athens is the the main hub and starting point for most trips to Greece, so why not spend a couple of days discovering this historic city, before hitting the beach?
Athens colourful markets, its ancient monuments, the hustle and bustle of Syntagma and the city centre, its history wealth with the important influence on the development of Western Civilization!
Acropolis is the most prominent of all and it stands as the ultimate architectural and artistic expression of the ancient Athenian Spirit.
A growing city indeed engulfing its neighbouring suburbs all the way to Piraeus, and the gateway to the Greek islands.
Athens should be appreciated for what it is today as a whole, that includes both its thousand-year-old history and its hectic modern role of business, political and artistic center of our times.
Arriving in the City center of Athens the feeling is that of being in the middle of history, the creativity and the culture of a proud population that is productive and rich both in art and in spirit.
It is a city to live in and discover and the only way to appreciate the incredible charm it has had ever since its great past.
No matter how many times I visit it, it is never enough!
