Glorious sunsets, spotless beaches and bright blue seas make a luxury Greece holiday an ideal choice. It is a melting pot of stunning beauty, modern attractions and ancient sites. Greece is home to some of the world’s most prized architecture and there are plenty of ancient sites and relics to discover. A fascinating history of traditional civilisations is made even more appealing by the warm, friendly people waiting to tell you everything there is to know. If sight-seeing is not what you’re looking for, picture-postcard villages awash with pretty waterside tavernas are never far away.
Not to be missed
The islands are the main characteristic of Greece’s morphology and an integral part of the country’s culture and tradition. Among them the lush and green Ioninan Islands, in the northern part of the country: with their cooler climate, abundant olive and cypress trees and forested mountains, they are a lighter, greener version of Greece.
Wet by the Aegean Sea are the Cyclades Islands group of 24 islands, which look like all the postcards of Greece you’ve seen: white churches with blue domes and pink bougainvillea vines twining along them. Close to them, in the northwest Aegean, the Sporades Islands; with their dense vegetation, rocky landscapes, and pure blue seas they are a uniquely alternative destination.
