Unparallelled in beauty and ancient history
At the meeting point of three continents, Europe, Asia and Africa, lies the peninsula of Greece, washed by the Ionian Sea, the Aegean Sea and the Mediterranean Sea. Greece has a rich and diversified natural environment. It is one of the most mountainous countries in Europe and its endless kilometres of coastline, of which half is found around the thousands of islands of the Greek archipelago, the mild climate and glorious sunny days, make Greece a truly unique tourist paradise. In Greece visitors can trace the “fingerprints” of ancient history in the multitude of archaeological sites and museums. Greece, birthplace of the Olympic Games, with its superb facilities, is ideal for sports tourism. One of the authentic cultural elements of this region is its distinctive gastronomy, based on the pure and unique quality goods locally produced. Traditional market areas but also famous fashion labels are offered for shopping; wellness and spa centres for luxury time; “tavernas” by the sea or in the mountain; cinemas and theatres, will satisfy all desires. Greece is famous for its especially intense and multifaceted nightlife – here the fun lasts until the early hours of the morning!
