Greece is a picturesque country from the turquoise blue waters and white sandy beaches to the stately majestic mountaintops. Bordered on three sides by the Aegean, Ionian and Mediterranean Seas, the region is rich in historical and religious culture. Some visitors spend Greece holidays in one location absorbing all the area has to offer, while others choose to venture to other islands to see a multitude of sites and experience numerous activities. 

Individuals anticipating exploration of ancient sites enjoy Greece holidays in Athens. Thousands visit the Athens Archaeological Museum to see ancient relics and learn historical facts before venturing to one of many ancient ruins. The world famous Acropolis is the foundation for the Parthenon and the ancient outdoor theatres where famous philosophers once gathered, and where concerts are still enjoyed. The Delphi on Mount Parnassus was visited by citizens travelling from miles around to seek advice from the god Apollo. Olympia, in Peloponnese, was once considered an important athletic and religious centre. Biblical history abounds in the region, as the island of Pathos contains the cave where the Apostle Paul wrote the book of Revelations and is the location where a medieval monastery was built in his honour.

Those enjoying Greece holidays have the opportunity to experience countless natural wonders of the country. The island of Kelafonia contains the Drongarati Cave, whose chamber of exaltation provides the perfect acoustics for many public venues. The Melissani Cave is a unique destination and is accessible only by boat. The Northern Pindus Mountain range, located in the northern part of the country, invites guests to hike the beautiful surroundings of the immense Vikos Gorge. Other impressive photographic opportunities await visitors at the Samaria Gorge on Crete and the legendary Mount Olympus in Cyprus. 

The abundant sandy shores and clear waters provide the environment for many water activities or the opportunity to enjoy the sunset while strolling along the beach. Equipment shops and instructors are available for those desiring to learn snorkelling or scuba diving. Motorized boats and sailing vessels are available on holidays to Greece to visit various islands or enjoy the view at sea.
