Greece travel guide

Beaches · Ruins · History Museums
Few places manage to capture the world's imagination quite like Greece, a land of sun-kissed coastlines, tranquil whitewashed villages, lively seaside towns, and well-preserved ancient sites. One of the world's top tourist destinations since ancient times, the country draws nearly 20 million visitors each year. Athens, the birthplace of Western civilization, continues to attract the biggest crowds and serves as a base for exploring the country and its 227 inhabited islands. Away from its cities, Greece features a picturesque countryside of olive groves, vineyards, and tiny settlements nestled against rolling hills and rugged mountain ranges. Explore the old mainland on foot and discover the islands on a guided boat or ferry tour.

Attica travel guide

Ruins · History Museums · Architectural Buildings
Home to Athens, the national capital, the historic region of Attica remained a collection of smaller kingdoms for a good portion of its long history. Today the region ranks as one of Greece's top travel destinations, drawing visitors with its archaeological sites that include a string of ancient temples, fortresses, tombs, theaters, columns, and city walls. Attica also includes several islands, ideal for both long-stay vacations and brief day trips from Athens. Be sure to add the northern section of Attica to your itinerary if you wish to escape the cities in favor of forested mountains and gently rolling hills.

Santorini travel guide

Wine Island
Known for dramatic views and romantic sunsets, the island of Santorini draws visitors with its long string of black, white, and red beaches. The largest and most significant of a small group of volcanic islands located just 200 km (120 mi) southeast of Greece's mainland, Santorini boasts just over 15,000 permanent residents. Created by a massive volcanic eruption that likely destroyed a single large island, the archipelago still features an active volcano, which saw its last eruption in the 1950s. The easiest way to explore Santorini's craggy coastline is on foot. Start by visiting the archaeological sites on the island's southwestern side, which offer a chance to discover the area's ancient past with unobstructed views of the famed volcano.

Island of the Knights
An island of green hills, fertile valleys, and golden beaches, Rhodes blends cosmopolitan and traditional cultures, exemplified by its traditional taverns, upscale hotels, and archaeological sites. Nicknamed the "Island of Roses," this island offers visitors a chance to discover lively tourist resorts in the north and tranquil rural areas in the south. The island's slow pace seems utterly unaffected by the challenges of mass tourism, its permanent residents stubbornly clinging to their age-old traditions and relaxed lifestyle. As you explore the areas farther away from the busy coastline, take time to meet the garrulous locals in their natural environment, the village tavern.
