Walking on sunshine
The country is famous for its perfect climatic conditions. Not tropical and not arctic, this is a fantastic destination for every season. Did you know that most places in Greece get sunshine for 300 days per year?
You will love the virgin landscape, the exotic color of the sea and the bright light of the sun. Each place has a different authentic style.
It will take you years to explore the country, but only a glance to fall in love with it. Have a look at our beautiful photos.
Greece remains among the safest countries in the world. The criminality rate is very low, especially on the islands.
Feel no fear to walk late at night and have chats with the locals. This will be among the best pleasures during your Greek holidays.
Only in Athens should you have an eye open, as pick-pocketing is usually reported in large queues, for example in buses or when boarding the ferry.
But this is not the case in the islands, where you can lay back and enjoy a carefree atmosphere.
High level of hospitality
Hospitality is one of the main reasons to visit Greece. Feel free to mingle with the locals, have long chats with them, or stop them at the street to ask for directions. They love it!
Apart from the locals, you will also enjoy a high quality of services in the hotels and resorts.
A country with a past
Even in the smallest piece of land, you will find something reminiscent of the past. There are ancient sites of various historical periods under every stone: from remains of ancient Greek temples to Byzantine monasteries and Neoclassical mansions.
Healthy and tasty cuisine
Greece is famous for its healthy products, including virgin olive oil, vegetables, fruit, fish, nuts, and wine. These products are the basis of the Mediterranean diet, which is rich in proteins and low in saturated fats. They are cooked together and create delicious results. Even in the smallest tavern, do not hesitate to taste local dishes - tey will be totally different than any other ethnic recipe you have tasted so far!
Easy to access
There are frequent air connections from the largest world airports to the International Airport of Athens and from Athens and daily flights to many national airports around the country.
Also, in summer, many direct charters and low-cost flights from various European airports land on the most popular islands.
As for the ferry connections, there are ferries between Greece and Italy all year round and between Greece and Turkey in summer.
As a member of the EU, other EU citizens do not need a passport and visa to visit the country and stay as long as they like. Also, many citizens of foreign countries do not need to make visa arrangements for tourism, including citizens of the USA, Australia, and Canada, among others.
You are young in age or young at heart and are looking for a place with vivid nightlife? Mykonos, Paros, Ios, Skiathos, Rhodes, Corfu and Zakynthos are only a few of the places where parties start in the midday and last utnil the early hours.
Enjoy your cocktail under the hot sun and dance on the sand until your feet can hold no more!
You will find no difficulty to communicate in English with the Greeks. Asking for directions, ordering in restaurants, shopping, or getting information in English is very easy everywhere in the country. In fact, in most tourist places, you will discover that the staff of tourist businesses may also speak French, German, Italian, or even Russian!
