A homestead for all things mythological and historical, the mountain laden mainland of Greece and its neighbouring islands know how to attract both hedonist hunters and kindred wanderlusters.
Made up of a beautifully diverse coastline and cities that strike the balance of contemporary and conventional, Greece delivers the works. Framed by the islands of Zakynthos, Skiathos and Corfu, Greece’s mainland is often overlooked in favour of its Aegean dwelling siblings. From the pine forests of trident-like peninsula, Halkidiki, to the cool creative crowd of Athens, the mainland is a playground for heritage seekers.
Out to sea, Greece’s islands appeal to the masses. While the bohemian gang make a beeline for Mykonos’ glamorous beach bars and the solidarity searchers to Milo’s coves, the family travellers settle on mountainous Crete. Meanwhile, the up-scale yet chilled out volcanic island of Santorini, known for its sunset views, is one that must be visited even just for a day.
Greece embraces its past as wholeheartedly as it looks to the future. It’s the ever-changing culture and ingrained local spirit that makes its attraction undoubtedly eternal.
