Greece is one of the sunniest countries in the world – in every single way. Life is centered around laughter, music, dance, and food, all things that symbolize everything it means to be Greek. As the sea laps against the taverna, the flavors of local olives burst in your mouth, and the sounds of people laughing over a shot of ouzo bring you to a place of blissful happiness.
Step Back in Time
Step back in time to one of the first civilizations on the planet! This is the country where the first-ever Olympic games took place and where the stories of ancient myths and epic Greek gods come to life. There’s no better place to gain a deeper understanding of Greek history than the Acropolis, Athens. Walk among the towering columns, seeing this wonderful display of architecture that has been replicated the world over.
Wild Island Beauty
Once you reach the wild and beautiful shores of the islands, your heart will truly belong to Greece. As the boat docks in the harbor, gaze upon white and blue houses, craggy cliffs, sweeping olive groves, and the dazzling blues of the Aegean sea. There’s nothing better than hiking along the rocky footpaths, accompanied only by the noise of donkeys and cicadas. The most unforgettable moment though is when you break through the shade of the pine trees to find that secret cove you’ve been looking for. Hop in the crystal clear water, taking in every glimpse of colorful fish, turtles, and dolphins.
This is Greece and it will leave a sandy, salty, sunny imprint on your heart forever.
