Greece offers excellent beaches, tavernas and a classic Mediterranean climate along with masses of ancient sites to visit. There is no getting away from the historic atmosphere reminding you of centuries of history.


A wonderful base for a visit with a massive range of shops and restaurants and several astonishing archaeological sites such as the Acropolis and the Athenian Agora. More at: Tourist Athens and Athens - home to the Parthenon
