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.
Walks and Wonders of the Pelopon
Island hopping in the Cyclades
When you think of Greece images of white-washed houses with blue roofs, tiny chapels, volcanic calderas, crystal clear water, blue-flag beaches and waterfront tavernas spring to mind. In the Cyclades these images are a reality. Discover the westernmost islands of the group - Folegandros and Milos - on our 7 night island hopping holiday.
