Destination Information for Greece

Across Greece’s 6,000 islands, there is an abundance of both cultural significance and impressive natural features. Hot weather and sandy beaches attract a number of the tourists, but the rich history of this nation means there is so much more on offer. The Acropolis is an iconic landmark of Athens, and this rocky mound– crowned by three spectacular temples– dates back to the 5th Century B.C.

Santorini is one of the most popular of the Greek Isles, with the black volcanic-sand beaches providing the perfect location for swimming and sunbathing. It is also the home of the ancient archaeological site of Akrotiri, which is a Minoan settlement buried in a volcanic eruption some 3,600 years ago. Another luxurious Greek island is Mykonos, where the fashionable restaurants and grand hotels attract numerous famous faces.
