Greece is much more than what you learned at school and much more than a place just to have summer holiday, Greece is an experience you will never forget.
In Greece, you are standing at a crossroads of cultures, colours and civilisations, you feel the strength of history and the warmth of being in the southernmost part of Europe, you discover an evolutionary process of thought, influence and experience.
Take a walk through the olive groves or visit an ancient site. Go island hopping between all the great and yet so different islands. Roam from the beaches to rocky mountains and explore breathtaking scenery. Greece whether your trekking around the world, you’re a couple looking for a romantic time away or maybe a family wanting to get that little bit closer. Greece is the place for you!
The islands of Greece such as Crete , Rhodes, and the Cyclades are also noted for thier picturesque scenery and rich histories. Santorini is quite impressive, its capital Thira is a the edge of this large cliff, as half of the island sunk in some volcanic eruption thousands of years ago. The sunsets are breathtaking. It also has nice black sand beaches, such as Perissa beach. Mykonos is also great fun, with over 20 sandy beaches and countless great bars to enjoy till the early hours, always feeling in the presence of the island culture which the white house architecture portrays. And there is the sacred island of Delos, which is a short boat ride from Mykonos...and it is sort of like the birthplace of Greek Mythology.
In mainland Greece, you have the magnificent Meteora monasteries. The mountainous terrain of Greece is ideal for trekking, while Mt. Parnassus near Delphi offers opportunities for skiing.
In the east, Greeces second biggest city of Thessaloniki is absolutely worth a visit. The city has many monuments most of them dating back to Byzantine times.
When you plan a trip to Greece try to visit at least the capital Athens, a bit of the Peloponessos and one or two islands. You will then get a general idea of what this fascinating country has to offer. Athens is a great city with many interesting street fairs.
The island of Rhodes is part of the Dodecanese group of island; it is the capital and the biggest of the group with a population of about 98.000 inhabitants. The Island of Rhodes is the sunniest place in Europe; it averages 300 days of sunshine per year. Rhodes is the perfect holiday dream for every individual from every part of the world who has heard something about its irresistible charm or has seen something of its incomparable beauty.
Pulsing with superb beaches and landscapes, interesting archaeological sites, cosmopolitan resorts, organized business centers and traditional settlements, Rhodes, an island with ideal substructure for the hosting of every kind of tourism, shall offer you the best experiences and shall leave you with the best impressions.
Other beautiful villages such as Kamiros, Ialyssos and Lindos are testifying, with their fine architecture, about Rhodes’s classical past. Another quality of Rhodes is its rich and varied landscape which is arid and rocky around the coastlines, creating impressive rocky formations, and verdant of lush forests in its interior. But the biggest asset of Rhodes is its capital (the City of Rhodes); it is a splendid medieval city, the largest inhabited medieval town in Europe, and its fortifications are considered as the finest example of medieval architecture.
A walk in Rodini Park is a must. This park is perhaps the first landscaped park in the world. It is a couple of kilometers away from the Old Town, and one can see part of the ancient aqueduct system of Rhodes within it. No visit of Rhodes is complete without visiting Lindos. Youll find Lindos at a distance of 55 kilometers from Rhodes town, on the eastern side of the island. Built in the 12th Century B.C., it is now a top-class resort, with a fine sandy beach and a tiny lagoon, which reflects the whitewashed houses and the Lindos Acropolis above. The village contains many houses dating from the 16th, 17th, and 18th centuries, which are known as “the houses of the captains.” Their architecture and decoration are unique in the Greek world.
For solitary travelers, tourist groups, companies of friends, couples and families as well as for business trips, corporate events and incentives, Rhodes Greece is the utmost destination.
Kos is the third largest island of the Dodecanese archipelago, after Rhodes and Karpathos. The island of the father of Medicine, Hippocrates. It lies between the islands of Nisyros and Kalymnos, close to the coasts of Asia Minor. A perfect area for holidays. Kos is the greenest and most fertile island of the group and the second more touristy and popular island after cosmopolitan Rhodes. It is very well organised and has everything in terms of tourist infrastructure and a wide range of accommodations.
Welcome to the taste of Kos; of the exquisite traditional confection, Glyko Domataki (baby tomatoes in syrup); of marvelous local wines; of roast red peppers stuffed with Feta; of outstanding seafood fresh from the sea.
The island has long been known for its marvelous climate and outstanding beaches, two very important ingredients for any summer holiday in Greece. Kos surely delivers all of that, plus an incredible variety of water sports at just about every organized beach on the island. You can find water skiing, peddle boats, scuba diving, wind and kite surfing, sailing with hobby or catamarans, jet ski, banana boats, wake boards, and even canoes and kayaks. The island’s long, narrow shape provides for a lot of coastline, approximately 128 kilometers in total.
At first site, Kos may be a bit disappointing with the many bars and huge hotel complex lining the coast. However, after a while, visitors will find that it is a very beautiful and attractive island with quiet nooks, appealing mountainous villages, excellent touristy infrastructure, verdant landscape, abundant ground water and superb beaches of various sizes and colours.
Crete is home to the oldest civilization of Europe. The Minoan civilization predates that of the rest of Europe by a good few hunderd years. The temples and palaces they built were the basis of many myths and are still one of the most impressive archeological sites in the world.
Iraklion, the capital of the island, will probably be your point of entry. It is connected to many European capitals by direct flights and boats leave to Athens and Santorini on a regular basis.
Sights you will have on your to do list will include Hania the second town of the island, the Knossos, a visit to some of the Venetian castles ( Imeri Gramvousa, Frangocastello e.g.), the Lassithi plateau, and the town of Agios sostis/lithakia with its great beaches nearby.
