Holidays to Greece

Greece is a country that woos everyone with its simple, down-to-earth approach to life and the friendliness of its people. With a coastline ranked 11th in the world and three summer months of guaranteed sunshine, it’s no surprise Greece is synonymous with a beach holiday, but there’s more to the country than that. Athens and Thessaloniki are two top city breaks, mountainous interiors offer tremendous hikes – even skiing, and Greece’s glorious history ensures there are impressive ancient sites all over, including Delphi, Mycenae and Olympia.

I still remember my amazement when confronted with a fresco of Hades abducting Persephone in the tombs of the Macedonian Kings in Vergina. For here was a chariot that was depicted with modern perspective, a technique that wouldn’t take off in Western Art until it was ‘invented’ by Italian masters in the Renaissance. Greece has a knack of constantly surprising you with the unexpected.
