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 300 days per year?
You will love the virgin landscape, the exotic color of the sea, 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. In fact, 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
Since ever, warm 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 a connection to 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, fruits, fish, nuts, and wine. These products are the basis of the Mediterranean diet, which is rich in proteins and low in saturated fats. These products are cooked together and make delicious dishes. Even in the smallest tavern, do not hesitate to taste local dishes. They 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, there are almost daily flights to many local airports around the country.
Also in summer, there are many direct charters and low-cost flights from various European airports to the most popular islands.
As for the ferry connection, there are ferries between Greece and Italy all year round and also between Greece and Turkey in summer.
As a member of the EU, clearly other EU citizens do not need a visa to visit the country and stay as long as they like. Also, many citizens of other world countries do not need to make visa arrangements for tourism, including citizens of the USA, Australia, and Russia.
You are young in age or young at heart, looking for a place with vivid nightlife? Mykonos, Paros, Ios, Skiathos, Rhodes, Corfu, Zakynthos are only a few of the places where parties start in the midday and last till the early hours.
Enjoy your cocktail under the hot sun and dance on the sand till your feet can hold no more!
You will find no difficulty to communicate in English with the Greeks. Ask for directions, the order in restaurants, shop or get information in English will be very easy everywhere in the country. In fact, in most tourist places, you will discover that staff of tourist businesses may also speak French, German, Italian or even Russian.
