Discover Greece

Greece TravelIn this day and age, hot summers and cool blue seas remain big draws in the holiday industry. On the other hand, many people prefer a more cultural holiday, stimulating their intellectual sides with historical sites and other such places to see. But Greece offers a beautiful combination of both these elements, putting Mediterranean seas and weather together with a rich cultural history and a past that includes the very foundation of modern civilisation.

 

With 1400 islands among its geography, of which 227 are inhabited, Greece offers a variety of places to discover. From Crete with its mythological and historical significance to Athens, the birthplace of democracy, the country has a varied and diverse landscape. Whether you’re into beautiful beaches, sunbathing lazily, or wandering through picturesque markets in narrow back alleys, Greece will keep any tourist happy for weeks at a time.

 

The climate is typical of the Mediterranean area, with mild, damp winters. In the summer, you can expect a dry, pleasant heat that’s a far cry from dense humidity. In this dry heat you can find yourself far more active than a similar heat would allow you to be in moister circumstances.

 

As a member of the EU, Greece is easy to travel to, and anyone with an EU passport will find themselves welcomed with open arms. Finding flights to Greece is not a problem, with many low-budget airlines like Ryanair and Easyjet operating regular flights. More up-market airlines like British Airways also operate flights, but will obviously cost more. That said, with the flight being as brief as it is – a quick jaunt down the continent – it may not be worth the added expense.

 

In terms of quality of life and standard of living, Greece is consistently very high on the charts. This means you can expect to encounter happy, fulfilled people, and it certainly contributes to Greece’s enduring charm.

 

The food in Greece is rich and varied, which is very different from what you may be used to at home. Also, it is generally delicious, and any Greek menu will contain something for everyone. It is an excellent example of the stereotypical Mediterranean diet, bringing together healthy food with delicious flavour. Fresh ingredients are combined into dishes, some of which can be traced back to ancient Greece and have been eaten for millennia.

 

Since the country is geared towards tourism, you will find your options for housing in Greece remarkably plentiful. Whether you want an all-inclusive hotel, a cottage on the beach, or anything in between, you’ll be able to find it either on the mainland or on any given island you set your sights on.

 

If its past intrigues you, you will be able to visit ancient buildings such as the Parthenon and Minos’s legendary labyrinth where the Minotaur was rumoured to have dwelled. Steeped in this ever-present history, the country strikes its visitors as a dream-like wonderland.

 

If you’re looking for the holiday destination that will enchant and delight you every moment of your trip, then give Greece a shot. You may well find yourself going back at every available opportunity.
