Greece Experiences

  • Whether you’re looking for an activity-filled trip or relaxing sunshine break, Greece has it all with colourful coastal villages, ancient architecture and spectacular natural landscapes.
  • In the capital Athens on mainland Greece, you’ll find upscale boutiques and markets selling traditional Greek items such as jewellery or leather products. Watch opera performance at Athens Concert Hall, or visit the Panathinaiko Stadium, where the Olympic Games were first established in 1896. Archaeological sites include the Olympian Temple of Zeus and Ancient Agora. The country is full of myths and legends, and you can learn about ancient Greek history and the Roman period at the Athens National Archaeological Museum.
  • The islands in Greece are bursting with charm, and you’ll find endless beaches, secluded coves, and sapphire waters around the craggy coastline. Head to Santorini where white-washed buildings glisten in the sunshine, set in the hillside beneath colourful cliffs. In the evening the buildings practically glow with the reflected shades of orange and red from the setting sun.
  • For an authentic culinary experience in Greece, visit the island of Limnos and savour local wine, cheese platters, and sweet honey amid verdant green plains and huge rock formations.
  • On Crete, visit the Ideon Cave, where the God Zeus is said to have been born, hike through the national park and visit the Samaria Gorge, or wander along alleyways in Chania and admire fountains and grand Venetian mansions.
  • The cosmopolitan island of Corfu blends old with new and has the UNESCO-listed Old Town with preserved cobbled streets, narrow alleys, and piazzas that lead to monuments, cafés, and small shops.
