When visiting this gorgeous country we strongly advise you to book a few days to explore Athens, the country’s capital with its wonderful ancient ruins, the Temple of Delphi, the Temple of Aphaia and Meteora, a unique place in Europe with many beautiful monasteries spread all over the mountain.

Things become a little bit complicated when we are talking about beach destinations. There are so many wonderful islands that it is almost impossible to name some places.

The most popular island, famous for its unique landscape is Santorini. But islands like Mykonos, Rhodes, Thassos, Crete are also very famous among tourists.

For first time visitors, I recommend to book a few days in Athens and then a relaxing holiday at one of the Greek islands, and for the ones who want to discover more about Greece, a tour across many islands is a good idea.
