Things to do on your Greece Tours

Main Attractions and Tourist Regions

 

Santorini, Greece

Greece tours will inevitably start and finish in its historic capital, Athens. Here you can marvel, from any angle, at the incredible Acropolis, which is, along with the pyramids in Egypt, arguably one of the most important ancient sites in the world. Crowned by the Parthenon, the Acropolis overlooks the entire city and looks especially magnificent when illuminated at night.

 

Athens is under a continual revamp where new, stylish shops and restaurants keep emerging and a progression in a thriving art scene manifests the direction that the Greek capital is heading.

 

Along with immersing in the fascinating history of Athens, cooking courses are a popular option and a chance to learn how to make one of the finest cuisines in the world.

 

For sun-seekers, beach-lovers and adventurers, island hopping in Greece allows you to indulge in the fine things in life, Greece’s beautiful food, the soaring cliffs overlooking sparkling oceans, incredible year-round weather and great water-sports and activities.

 

Santorini is the most spectacular of the Greek islands, with its layered white-washed facade overlooking an overwhelmingly seductive Aegean ocean. Other popular island destinations are CreteMykonosCorfu and Rhodes.

 

Another mesmerizing site that can’t be missed on your Greece tours are the remarkably spectacular monasteries of Meteora, perched up high on top of 6 natural sandstone rock pillars. The monasteries were used as a safe haven for monks during the 14th century bloodshed and are now one of Greece’s most aesthetic sites, reached by a network of attractive steps, hewn into the side of the rocks.

 

Hikers and trekkers will be elated to know that on the Greek island of Crete the Samaria Gorge awaits for some splendid trekking. The ‘White Mountains’ National park centers around the gorge, and at 1,200 meters it offers breath-taking views. It is also the longest gorge in Europe.

So What’s Greece All About?

Food and Culture of Greece

 

Food, Religious practices and traditions are all an integral part of the culture in Greece. Contemporary Greek culture relies heavily on Greece’s location, lying where east meets west and therefore reflecting and merging both. The country’s turbulent history is also a fundamental factor in understanding the Greek philosophy.

 

Having evolved over thousands of years, Greece contains arguably the most significant history and philosophy in Europe and is essential to understanding the rich modern culture that it has evolved in to.

 

Greece’s diverse cuisine is world-famous and relies heavily on a wide variation of fresh foods. It reflects the Mediterranean diet and makes use of a rich amount of olive oil, salads mixed with sumptuous fresh yogurt and scooped up with soft, fresh bread, and of course the ubiquitous olives and feta cheese.

 

Dips are used widely and are also an enviable group of Greek recipes, in particular the mouth-watering Tzatziki (yoghurt, cucumber and garlic) and taramosalata (cod roe, olive oil and lemon juice).

 

Having many coasts and islands, fish is another dish served incredibly well in Greece and, although not so popular, meats in Greece are cooked to perfection and easily accessible.

 

When to go on your Greece Tours

What time of the year is it best to visit Greece?

 

The best time of the year to visit Greece would be the periods just before and just after summer.

 

Mid-April to Mid-June you will see the beautiful spring weather just heading in to summer but also avoid those intense summer months of mid-June to September.

 

The worst times to visit would be the scorching month of August and also the wet winter months from November-February.
