Take a holiday in Greece to explore ancient Greek monuments in Athens and Byzantine relics in Greece's second city, Thessaloniki. In the north, visit the Meteora region's remote medieval monasteries. Or enjoy relaxing holidays on Greece's islands – choose Santorini for glamour or Rhodes for history.
Head to one of Greece's 60 inhabited islands for your holidays. Opt for the lush green of Greece's Ionian islands (including Corfu and Kefalonia) to the west, or the dry rocky Cyclades (from Santorini to Mykonos) to the south-east. On the mainland, you'll find vineyards and olive groves in southern Greece's Peloponnese region, and snow-capped mountains in northern Greece.
On a cultural holiday in Greece, see the ancient temples of the Acropolis in Athens and centuries-old Byzantine churches in Thessaloniki, then indulge in soutzoukakia (meat-balls in tomato sauce). On island holidays in Greece, roam the cobbled streets of Italianate Corfu Town and medieval Rhodes Town, both UNESCO-listed attractions. Then tuck into seafood – think htapodi (octopus), kalamari (squid) and xifias (swordfish).
For a challenging holiday in Greece, charter a yacht and sail down the Ionian Sea from Corfu to Zakynthos and across the Aegean Sea from Kos to Paros, or try windsurfing off Lefkada island. For outdoor cultural holidays in Greece, explore the archaeological sites of Delphi and Olympia or in travel to the mountains of northern Greece and try rabbit casserole, stifado.
