There are few global destinations that have as much history and intrigue as Greece. When people make lists of the places that they must visit during their lifetimes, they almost always include Greece. Greece is particularly lovely in the spring and autumn, since Greece can sometimes get too warm during the summertime. Greece is also practically flooded with tourists during most summers. In the springtime and autumn, it may feel like there’s less competition for space.
Even people that are not especially familiar with Greece will have often heard of the famous Parthenon temple, and tourists that visit Greece without seeing the Parthenon will be shortchanging themselves. Almost everyone that visits Greece goes to the ancient Delphi Theatre, particularly people that are very interested in experiencing the historical aspects of Greece.
Beaches & Islands
The Myrtos Beach is one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, particularly due to the unique turquoise coloration of its waters. The beach is framed by harshly beautiful mountains and cliffs, making the area one of the most visually stunning places to visit in Greece. People that truly appreciate the majesty of cliffs could also visit Meteora. Tourists will be able to see cliffs that are twelve hundred feet high and have priceless historical monasteries at the summits. Meteora should satisfy tourists that are interested in both nature and history.
People that visit Greece will usually try to visit some of the Greek islands, although given the number of Greek islands, they will have to prioritize. Santorini is one of the most popular Greek islands, mainly for its tremendous natural beauty, the architecture of its cities, and its shops and cafes. Corfu is a Greek island that people who enjoy Greek mythology should visit. Tourists that are taking Greek vacations could probably end up spending their entire vacations on the island of Crete, a large island that manages to capture a great deal of what makes Greece such an appealing destination in the first place. Of course, it’s difficult for even the most ambitious tourist to be able to experience all of Greece in a single vacation.
