The birthplace of the Olympics and democracy, Greece is a country with an extraordinarily grand history that’s been kept alive through the preservation of ancient architecture and cultural sites. The capital city of Athens is home to many such marvels, including the Pantheon temple on the Acropolis and the historic Plaka district. Other regions of the country, however, feature their own dazzling sights and landmarks, which include renowned Mediterranean beaches alongside forested, mountainous topography such as the famous Mount Olympus, mythological home to the ancient Greek gods. Greece is also known for its spectacular Mediterranean cuisine that’s as distinctive and colourful as the coastline itself. But whichever sense you hope to please, the many islands and attractions of Greece will surely have something to excite you.
