Top destinations in Greece



ATHENS THE ACROPOLIS
“THE SACRED ROCK”
You don't have to look far in Athens to encounter perfection. Towering above all—both physically and spiritually—is the Acropolis, the ancient city of upper Athens. The Greek term Acropolis means "High City," and today's traveler who climbs this table-like hill is paying tribute to the prime source of Western civilization.


ATHENS THE MUSEUM OF ACROPOLIS
“DISCOVER THE SCULPTURAL DECORATION OF THE PARTHENON”
If some buildings define an entire city in a particular era, Athens's newest museum boldly sets the tone of Greece's modern era. Occupying a large plot of the city's most prized real estate, the New Acropolis Museum nods to the fabled ancient hill above it but speaks in a contemporary architectural language.


ATHENS PLAKA AREA
“NEIGHBOURHOOD OF THE GODS”
Set in the shadow of the Acropolis and often compared to the whitewashed villages of rural Greek islands, Plaka is the most popular dining and shopping area of Athens.


MYCENAE
“RICH IN GOLD”
The ancient citadel of Mycenae, ruled a large portion of the Mediterranean world, from 1500 BC to 1100 BC.
The most famous object from the treasure found here is the so-called Death Mask of Agamemnon.


DELPHI
“POWER TO PREDICT THE FUTURE”
Nestled in the mountain cliffs, the home of the famous oracle is perched dramatically on the edge of a grove leading to the sea, west of an
extraordinary ancient site. In antiquity Delphi was considered the holiest place in Greece and the “Navel” of the Earth.


THE METEORA
“THE HANGING MONASTERIES”
As you drive through the mighty Pindos range, strange rock formations rise ever higher from the plain. Just beyond the dramatic sheer cliff that shelters the town of Kalambaka, you can find the legendary monasteries of the Meteora, one of the wonders of the later Middle Ages. Remember the James Bond For Your Eyes Only climax? 


SANTORINI
“SPECTACULAR SUNSETS”
Undoubtedly the most extraordinary island in the Aegean, crescent-shape Santorini remains a mandatory stop on the Cycladic tourist route, for enjoying the sensational sunsets from Oia, the fascinating excavations, and the dazzling white towns – even if you have to share this – with a million other travelers.


MYKONOS & DELOS
“PARADISE ISLAND” / MARKET-PLACE OF THE AEGEAN
If you’re looking for adventure, excitement and a lot of entertainment, you’ll find it all in Mykonos. With its traditional whitewashed buildings, long sandy beaches, picturesque villages and traditional windmills, Mykonos is your archetypal, beautiful Greek island.
Delos, for almost 1,000 years was the religious and political center of the Aegean and host to the Delian games, the region's greatest festival.


KOS
“THE ISLAND OF HIPPOCRATES”
Kos, the “Island of Hippocrates”, the father of medicine, is a superb summer destination with clear blue waters, lush vegetation and mountain landscapes.
The Asklepieion is undoubtedly the most important monument on Kos, the oldest and most famous hospital in the ancient world. It is until today that the Hippocratic Oath ceremony is being re-enacted at the temple of Asklepieion.
