Greece’s main pull has to be its islands. Here you get clean sea and superb sandy beaches, ideal for swimming and sunbathing, plus water sports facilities for sailing, scuba diving and windsurfing. Greece also offers heaps of culture – Ancient Greek archaeological sites including the Acropolis in Athens, Corinth, Olympia, and Mycenae on the Peloponnese, and Knossos on Crete; medieval churches and monasteries such as the Meteora in Thessaly; and unspoiled Venetian-era port towns like Nafplio, Chania, and Corfu. Add to this a vibrant nightlife – the best known being on Mykonos – and your holiday is made.
