Islands and Beaches
Greece has one of the longest coastlines in the world. The mainland and island areas offer many beautiful beaches, charming bays and coves. Every Greek beach is engulfed in beauty. Some are lush-green with pines reflecting in the water, others were born from volcanic eruptions demonstrating nature’s power. The Greek shores are world-famous and exceedingly popular because of their crystal-clear waters. You can enjoy beaches stretching over many kilometres, sandy or pebbly; the choice is yours!
Greek cuisine is rich in authentic flavours and aromas and has a history of around 4000 years, with special characteristics based on pure and unique quality products. Its culinary secrets consist of quality fresh ingredients, fine use of flavourings, the famous Greek olive oil and simplicity! Greeks gathering around the table to enjoy a meal along is a long-lasting tradition so be sure to wine and dine on your visit to Greece in a traditional restaurant or a taverna.

All around the Greek territory there is a plethora – over 100 – of imposing archaeological sites, some of which proudly populate the UNESCO World Heritage Sites list. One of these, the greatest and finest sanctuary of ancient Athens, dedicated primarily to its patron, the goddess Athena, dominates the centre of the modern city from the rocky crag known as the Acropolis. Take a cultural tour in the cradle of the western civilisation and discover significant sites and monuments.
