Exquisite islands, beautiful coastline, ancient stories and delicious food all play their part in the worldwide appeal of Greece. Here the coastline stretches 16,000km, met with sparkling transparent Mediterranean waters. There are endless small bays and coves to explore and, of course, many Greek islands too, the largest being Crete. Its rock coasts, vast sandy beaches, pebble shores and crystal blue Mediterranean waters are what bring guests back time and time again. Greece's long-standing history is also in evidence, with many archaeological sites and monuments of distinctive prestige and charm to explore. Scott Dunn’s highlights for Greece:
- Not to be missed, visit the famous Acropolis, to understand the ancient history behind the bustling city of Athens.
- For typical Greek island beauty, stay on the island of Santorini, near by to Nea Kameni. Spend days exploring its charming whitewash towns and stunning Aegean coastline.
- Be sure to take a boat trip to Spinalonga Island.
