If you’re looking for a summer holiday destination that’s home to glorious golden sandy beaches, mouthwatering cuisine and a spectacular heritage, holidays to Greece tick all the right boxes.
For a historic voyage of discovery, a trip to Athens will be right up your street. One of the world’s oldest cities with a recorded history spanning roughly 3,400 years, Athens has plenty to shout about. Explore its UNESCO World heritage Sites, including the magnificent pillared Acropolis of Athens and the medieval Daphni Monastery. Then, head into the city to explore its modern buzz, fabulous boutiques and lively nightlife – a startling contrast to the eerie hush of its treasured landmarks.
For a family holiday to remember, mainstream destinations like Crete or Corfu offer a collection of superb family resorts and well-equipped hotels where the onus is on fun for the little ones, and relaxation for mum and dad. You’ll find all sorts of family hotels offering kids’ clubs, splash pools, flumes, on-site activities and local amenities.
Or for something just for two, Greece is never short of options. Try scintillating Santorini for a romantic retreat with a difference. This is the kind of place that will be etched on your soul; its clifftop towns and hillside villages, whitewashed houses and blue-domed churches are nothing short of stunning. Make your way to the enchanting town of Thira, or had to Oia for a charm-your-socks-off escape and knock-out scenery.
Finally, what is a discussion about Greece without mentioning that most famous of Greek islands – Kefalonia? A breathtaking place with rocky coves and beautiful bays, Kefalonia is nothing short of stunning. A must-see for any Greece enthusiast, and certainly one for the bucket list.
Greece has so much to offer. Whether you’re after family-friendly fun or a historic journey of discovery, glorious Greece is always happy to oblige.
