Hot sun, white sand, and shimmering blue sea. You can experience all this and more from a holiday in Greece. In fact, if you look beyond the beautiful beaches and delicious food, you will find a country packed as full of culture as it is picturesque. Keep reading my post below to discover more about what awaits you on your Greek adventure.
First of all, if you are visiting Greece and don’t get a chance to soak up some of the culture and risk history that this area is home to, you are really missing out. Of course, I’m not saying that you shouldn’t enjoy the gorgeous sandy beaches and treat yourself to some of the local delicacies. In fact, you can even find some recommendations below. It’s just that you should definitely prioritize some of the critical sites.
Obviously, these sights include Acropolis & Parthenon in Athens. Then there is the stunning Temple of Apollo at Delphi, which is worth a visit just for the vista alone. Finally, while there are many other culturally significant and impressive sights to be seen in Greece, one that cannot be missed is Olympia. The site where the very first Olympics took place, an ancient tradition that is still in practice today.
Of course, the more intelligent among you will realise that these sites are not that close to one another. They are not so close to the Greek Islands, which are the traditional destination for holidaymakers. What that means is if you are to see these sites that are the cradle of modern civilization, you will need to visit multiple locations on the mainland.
Fortunately, you do not have to do all of this independently if you don’t want. In fact, you can choose one of the routes available from Greece Tours 2020 instead. These being organised tours of small groups that allow you to explore the locations mentioned above, as well as additional sites. All without the hassle of having to get there under your own steam, or book accommodation for each location.
Once you have visited all the key sites, you will probably want to take some time to chill and soak up the sun. In fact, just like some other European spots, Greece has some pretty amazing beaches. The best place for this being a locale in the Greek islands. In fact, the beach at Mykonos is world-famous for its azure blue waters. While the bay at Naxos is pretty impressive too.
Finally, one of the most impressive things about holidaying in Greece is the fantastic food and drink they have on offer. Be sure to stop by a local taverna and try the fish Kelfitico. A slow-roasted lamb shank with lemon and potatoes that is melt-in-the-mouth buttery.
Oh, and don’t be surprised to be offered plenty of Mythos Beer either. A tipple best served in an icy boot glass. You’ll find you are gifted plenty of Ozo shots too, especially after your meal has finished as an aperitif! Just don’t get too used to the warm hospitality and delicious food and generous portions during your Greek adventure! Otherwise, you won’t want to return home!
