Dominating the Attica region of Greece, the country’s capital, Athens, is one of the oldest cities in the world.

For over two and a half centuries, the astonishing Greek temples and monuments of Athens have continued to intrigue and amaze visitors from around the world.

This icon of western civilization seamlessly combines ancient history with modern architecture and a surprisingly lively atmosphere.

This is particularly apparent in areas at the foot of the Acropolis, Anafiotika, Plaka, Monastiraki and Thissio where visitors will find numerous extraordinary Neoclassical buildings, trendy and traditional cafes and shops, and narrow winding streets with historical treasures at every turn.

Once you have had a culture fix, try some mouth-watering Greek cuisine at one of the city’s fine local restaurants before indulging in the insatiable nightlife at the chic cocktail bars and waterfront dance clubs.


Classically known as Thera and officially Thira, the picturesque island of Santorini dots the South Aegean Sea.

Some destinations have stunning beaches and breathtaking natural landscapes, while others have extraordinary ancient cities and excellent restaurants.

The popular Greek island of Santorini is blessed with all of these attractive features and more. This lovely volcanic island in the Cyclades lies in the middle of the Aegean and is well known for its strikingly white cliff-side homes with their pretty deep blue rooftops.

Visitors will be treated to dramatic ocean views, pristine beaches, traditional Grecian architecture, many fascinating historical sites, fine dining, and numerous, excellent local wineries.

With all of this on offer, it is little wonder that this remarkably romantic island has become one of the world’s most popular island getaways.


The largest of the Greek islands dotting the Mediterranean Sea, Crete is set just off the southernmost part of the country at the entrance to the Aegean Sea.

This legendary island, considered one of the most important birthplaces of Greek culture, features the remnants of ancient civilizations, breathtaking landscapes, vibrant cities and sun-kissed mountain villages.

The terrain is characterised by deep gorges, fertile valleys, spectacular mountains and remarkably scenic beaches.

Visitors can hike through the stunning Samaria Gorge, Europe’s longest; sample an array of Greek cuisine and locally produced wine; visit the Cave of Zeus on the slopes of Mount Ida, said to be the birthplace of the mythological Greek god; or kayak, snorkel, dive and boat through crystalline waters around the island.
