• Greece

Greece is often known as the birthplace of Western culture. And Athens, its capital, retains ancient landmarks such as the Acropolis citadel and Parthenon temple. Greece is also known for its beaches, from the black sands of Santorini to the party resorts of Mykonos.

Ulysses spent around 10 years before coming home. Byron fell in love with the land and people. Lawrence Durrell wrote lyrically of island life. Greece inspires all who come here.

While it is commonly linked with blue seascapes and white washed villages, Greece displays a stunning diversity. Rugged Balkan hinterland, architecture ranging from classic to modern day era and islands spread across three seas are a few things to see. There are olive groves, Chios mastic villages, sprawling Athens, and crimson poppies every April. You can also find old men sitting for hours over a single coffee and ferries nudging into rickety piers.

Many visit the place to seek sun and sea but are smitten by the hospitality of the Greeks and find being as lured as all who went there until then.
