Temples. Ruins. Archaeological sites. Ancient statues. One could be forgiven for thinking that Greece lives permanently in its past, but nothing could be further from the truth.
Greece as a holiday destination is a vibrant, colourful country with a zest for life that is akin to riding a rollercoaster to infinity.
Nowhere else in modern Europe does the past meld so well with the present and the future than in this very special country.
Situated in the south of Europe, it is bordered on three sides by the seas of the Aegean, Ionian and Mediterranean. These seas are dotted with nearly 6,000 islands, not all inhabited, with the largest being Crete and the smallest, Tinos, in the Cyclades. There are 8 distinct groups of islands from the Sporades in the north to the Cretan islands in the south, all unique in their customs and cuisine and offering a variety of high quality accommodation.
Mainland Greece offers a delicious menu of treats from Macedonia in the north to the beautiful Peloponnese in the south and the people are very friendly and welcoming to visitors.
Much of Greece is mountainous with the legendary Mount Olympus, at 9,750ft, the highest mountain, a fitting site for the throne of the Gods.
Indeed to come to Greece is to step back in time, and, through the dust on your sandals, feel the past come alive, and once you have visited the many historical sites, there is time to relax and refresh oneself in the startlingly blue waters surrounding this spectacular coast, and dine on freshly caught fish and local produce.
Truly a destination with its feet in two worlds.
