Greece is a tourist destination since ancient times. "Ellados Periigissis" (Description of Greece), is the title of the first travel guide written by Pausanias -Greek historian, traveler and geographer- for the Roman tourists that visited Greece in the 2nd century A.D.
Its striking scenery and pleasing climate combined with some of the globe’s most precious historical places make us understand why Greece was chosen by the Gods and it attracts millions of travelers every year.
Needless to say that if your idea about Greece is in blue and white with some shadows of yellow, you’ll find out that it is much more than only sea, resorts, sun of its internationally known islands (mainly Mykonos, Santorini, Crete, Rhodes and Corfu) and temples... After visiting the Acropolis and its Parthenon, the most important monuments of Athens -its frantic and sprawling capital- and even of the world, keep discovering the other real treasures of Greece, antique ruins and Byzantine fortresses, orthodox churches and mosques and experience a sense of awe walking in the places where democracy was born. Stony landscapes and coniferous woods, orange and palm groves, the beauty of the hundreds caves, mountains, rocks, rivers, hidden beaches, sunsets, small unknown islands (it has about 1400 islands, of which 169 are inhabited), ancient wild villages, delicious, traditional Greek tastes, customs and.........wonderful and hospitable inhabitants!
