Take a trip over ancient temples and streets within Athens, before gliding over mountains covered in picturesque villages and olive trees. Beautiful, clear Greek beaches and harbours.
Every visitor to Greece should pass through Athens, but by no means should it just be a stopover before continuing to other attractions. Greece is full of history and the ancient Greek architecture makes its presence in every corner of this country. The Acropolis is one of the world’s most amazing historical monuments, and the Parthenon is its precious stone. The temple to Athena, the Greek Goddess after which the city was named, is a landmark that encapsulates ancient Greece. But the Parthenon should not be the only Greek temple on the visitor’s itinerary. The Erechtheion, the temple to Poseidon, and the Temple to Hephaestus are equally impressive ancient constructions. Make sure that you visit the National Archaeological Museum to learn more about the ancient Greek civilisation.
A visit to Plaka is like taking a step back in time, allowing you to walk the streets like Athenians
did thousands of years ago. Stop by a restaurant and taste all the special Greek cuisine and flavours like olives, dolmades, moussaka, souvlaki, tzatziki, fresh fish and baklava. Make sure to visit the popular Monastiraki market and have a cup of Greek coffee enjoying the view of Acropolis.
Travel north of Athens, to Thessaly, to see the great Meteora Greek-orthodox cathedrals. Along Thessaly’s coast is the wonderful Mount Pelion and its Pelion peninsula. The area is home to great beaches, like Papa Nero, and small coastal towns like Afissos. Mountain villages like <a href="http://my-dream-vacations omeprazole capsules.com/milies-b” target=”_blank”>Milies and Makrinitsa are lovely locations.
A trip to Greece is not over till you spend some time to the Greeks Islands. More than 2000 islands are waiting for you. Choices are many depending on what you are looking for. Every island is different by all means. From colours, beaches, local traditional cuisine, scenery, traditions to architecture and philosophy…. You can choose the Ionian Sea islands like Corfu, Kefalonia, Zakynthos etc, Crete or Rhodes in the south Aegean Sea, or Mykonos, Santorini, Paros, Naxos in the centre of Aegean Sea. You can visit Chios on the eastern part of Aegean Sea or go even further to Skiathos, Alonissos or Skopelos. Everyone is unique and hard to choose or not to. It’s all about what you are looking for or how and with whom you are travelling. If you need my help feel free to contact me and I’d love to give you my suggestions based on what you are looking for.
