The birthplace of theater and the center of the classical world, Greece is renowned the world over for its antiquities. From the solitary fortresses of Meteora to the ancient sites of Delphi and ancient Corinth and on to the splendors of the Acropolis and the Parthenon, Greece will overwhelm you with its rich history and culture.
Solitary fortresses perched precariously atop soaring sandstone towers, these religious retreats are over a thousand years old.
Built in the mid 5th-century BC, the Acropolis has come to represent the political and cultural achievements of Athens and is the very symbol of the city.
With the only circular orchestra to have survived from antiquity, this 4th-century BC masterpiece is truly a Greek treasure.
According to legend, Zeus declared Delphi to be the center of the earth and made it a focal point for worshipers who could hear the words of the god Apollo through its famous Oracle.
The symbols and rituals of the Greek Orthodox Church are deeply rooted in the culture and signs of its influence are to be found throughout the country.
With over 15,000 kilometers of coastline spread out along the Aegean, Ionian, and Mediterranean Seas, Greece is home to fabulous beaches and unforgettable sunsets.
World-renowned for their awe-inspiring beauty, the Greek Islands with their vibrant hues of blue and white are not to be missed.
With its fresh Feta cheese, succulent grapes, and ubiquitous olives in all their many forms, Greece’s Mediterranean cuisine is always a treat.
