Greece Information

 


Greece is a country in Southern Europe, on the southernmost tip of the Balkan peninsula, with extensive coastlines and islands in the Aegean, Ionian, and Mediterranean Seas. It shares borders in the north with Albania, the Republic of Macedonia, Bulgaria, and Turkey. It has an ancient culture that has had a significant influence on the arts, language, philosophy, politics, and sports of western society, including the genres of comedy and drama, western alphabets, Platonic ideals and the Socratic method, democracies and republics, and the Olympics. Furthermore it's a geographically appealing place to visit, with a mountainous mainland and idyllic island beaches.





Athens



Athens is one of the oldest cities in the world, and is full of beautiful neighbourhoods, historic sites, beaches and cultural attractions. The Acropolis dates back to the 5th century BC and is probably Greece’s most famous site. The Parthenon, part of the Acropolis, is an ancient temple to Athena, and needs no introduction. The Ancient Agora was where Socrates, Sophocles and Aristotle used to explain their ideas. The Tower of the Wind was built in the 1st century by a Syrian astronomer. The Arch of Hadrian was built by Roman Emperor Hadrian in 132 AD. The Theatre of Herodes Atticus dates back to 161 AD and can seat 5000 spectators. The Keramikos cemetery dates back to the 12th century BC. The Temple of Olympian Zeus was built in 131 AD by Emperor Hadrian. The Roman Stadium was built in the 4th century BC.

As well as all of this, Athens offers historic neighbourhoods, museums, art galleries, cafes, restaurants, nightclubs, squares, beaches and beautiful buildings.

Delphi


In ancient times, the town of Delphi was considered the centre of the world. Many would come for the Oracle of Delphi. Delphi contains many historic sites. The most important temple is the Sanctuary of Apollo. Delphi is located on a mountainside and affords great views.

Olympia


Olympia affords great historic significance and great beauty. It has ancient architecture from the 7th century BC such as the temple to the goddess Hera, and also from Roman and Byzantine times. Of course, it is most well-known for its stadium, where the ancient Olympic Games were held.

Epidaurus


Epidaurus has an ancient stadium that can seat 14,000 people. The Asklepion, named for Asklepios the god of healing, was an ancient healing centre. The Archaeological Museum contains many ancient artefacts and is well worth a visit.

Meteora


The site of Meteora has one of Greece’s most dramatic landscapes and 24 historic monasteries, which were built to protect monks during the Ottoman occupation. The monasteries are on top of a number of rock pinnacles.

Pelion


Pelion is a peninsula containing majestic coastal and mountain scenery and beautiful beaches. The area has plenty of traditional villages and was home to the mythical Centaurs. The mountains offer skiing in winter.

Halkidiki


The Halkidiki peninsula, birthplace of Aristotle, features incredible natural beauty and perfect beaches. It also features the monastery at Athos, the Holy Mountain. Some of the beaches are quiet and peaceful, with few visitors, while others pump with life.

Mykonos


Mykonos is famed as a cosmopolitan destination amongst the Greek islands and widely recognised as one of the great travel meccas. It is the most touristed island in the Aegean. This means that any visitors should be prepared for loud dance clubs, English breakfasts and over-priced merchandise.

Nafplion


The township of Nafplion features historic churches and mosques, museums, cafes, inns, taverns and a renowned waterfront square.

In addition to all the above, there are the ever-popular Greek Islands, which somehow retain a traditional lifestyle and ambience, despite being descended upon by hordes of tourists. The area is renowned for its beautiful beaches.

Santorini


Santorini is a volcanic island in the Cyclades group of the Greek islands. It is located between Ios and Anafi islands. It is famous for dramatic views, stunning sunsets from Oia town, the strange white aubergine, the town of Thira and naturally its very own active volcano. There are naturally fantastic beaches such as the beach of Perissa, maybe the best beach in Santorini, the black pebble beach of Kamari, white beach and red beach.

Santorini is one of the great natural wonders of the world, and its main attraction is the landscape and seascape of the island itself. The configuration of the present, roughly semicircular island is the result of an enormous volcanic explosion which occurred probably around 1630 BCE, literally blowing the top off the island
