Nothing says relaxing vacation quite like the country of Greece. With ancient roots, exquisite coastlines, and an abundance of mountains, Greece is a top destination for people all over the globe. While Greece is a European country, it's unique because it consists of islands in addition to the mainland. These islands, known as the Greek Islands, are located throughout the Sea of Crete and the Ionian and Aegean seas. This combination of blue waters, sandy beaches, rocky hills, and mountains creates a one-of-a-kind landscape, and a vacation like no other.
With famous architecture and historic sites, the city of Athens is the best place to begin a Greek vacation. Hotels in Athens are conveniently located within driving distance to ancient points of interest such as the Acropolis of Athens, the Parthenon, and the National Archaeological Museum. Although these attractions are at the top of many traveler's itineraries, there are other wonderful attractions throughout the entire country. In Crete, active vacationers can hike through the 10-mile-long Samaria Gorge Canyon. While in Mykonos, you can relax among the locals and take in all that the city's nightlife has to offer. Throughout the country, you will discover numerous Greece resorts that offer luxury accommodations. Whether these resorts and spas are located near the beautiful beaches of Zakynthos Island or Kastro-Kyllini, or nestled at the foot of Mount Olympus, hotels in Greece are excellent options for those looking to rest and relax. If you wish to shop for souvenirs before heading home, Corfu and Thessaloniki are packed full of local flea markets and shops with unique Greek items.
