THE HOLIDAY OF A LIFETIME
A visit to Greece is the dream holiday of a lifetime. When thinking of holidays, people picture the long crystal Greek beaches and the relaxing beach taverns. But be careful because Greece is addictive: if you have experienced Greek holidays once, no other place on earth will be sufficient for you.
You will love the virgin landscape, the exotic color of the sea, the bright light of the sun. Each place in Greece has a different authentic style, both in the islands and in the mainland. It will take you years to explore all the Greek islands, but only a glance to love them.
A COUNTRY WITH A PAST
Even in the smallest piece of land in Greece, you will find a connection to the past. All around the country and the islands, there are ancient sites of various historical periods: 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 in Greece, do not hesitate to taste local Greek dishes. They will be totally different than any other ethnic recipe you have tasted so far.
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.
