Greece’s historic sites and ruins have attracted travellers for millennia, and continue to do so today. Add to that beautiful beaches, a mountainous interior, welcoming people and plenty of sunshine, and you have the perfect holiday destination. The country's capital, Athens, is a large, busy city, home to a third of the population. The museums and ancient sites are well-known, but this is also the place to discover the best of contemporary Greece.

Beyond the capital, Greece’s greatest riches are its islands, ranging from quiet backwaters, where visitors are scarce, to glamorous resorts which match any in the Mediterranean. Each island has an atmosphere and identity of its own. Crete is the largest, where travellers can explore the ruins at Knossos Palace, relax on the beach or explore peaceful villages and countryside. In Mykonos and Santorini, white-washed villages tumble down the hillsides to beautiful beaches and mirror-flat cerulean seas. Rhodes too, with its beaches and excellent diving, is perfect for those wanting to spend time by the water. Greek food is fresh, abundant and uncomplicated, and you’ll be warmly welcomed to even the simplest taverna.
