Architectural gems are in good supply within the ancient city of Athens. The towering Acropolis, arguably the most significant ancient citadel in the Western world, is a must for any visitor. Filled with important temples like the Parthenon, no expense was spared in the acropolis’ construction over 2000 years ago – no wonder it still watches over Athens to this day. Walk in the footsteps of great philosophers like Socrates with a visit to the Agora, or head to Monastiraki Flea Market for a taste of modern Athenian life. For a splash of green, head to the National Gardens and soak up the peaceful ambience away from the hustle and bustle. If the call of the beach proves too strong, all you have to do is travel 10 miles south of the capital for the unspoilt sandy beaches, glistening mineral lakes and majestic mountains of the Athens Riviera.
Away from the hustle and bustle of mainland Greece, you'll find Crete resplendent with unspoiled greenery and miles of peaceful sands for a dose of tranquillity only the Mediterranean can offer. In the seaside fishing village of Agia Pelagia, you’ll be able to experience traditional Greek culture and authentic cuisine, while in Hersonissos you’re just a short distance from Heraklion, home of the Palace of Knossos and the Minoan art of the Heraklion Archaeological Museum. If you’re more intrigued by the stunning scenery, opt to take a boat tour of the coast where you’re guaranteed to get Instagram-worthy snaps. Crete has spectacular landscapes which make for memorable hikes too.
