Athens (Athina). Did you know that half of the population of Greece live in Athens? Must be a reason for that! If any place encapsulates the essence of this beautiful country it has to be the capital. People have lived here for thousands of years and all these generations have left a generous legacy of architecture.
Thessaloniki, also known as Thessalonika or Salonica is Greece’s second largest city and capital of the Macedonia region. It is known for its lively cultural life with numerous events and festivals taking place throughout the year.
The city is home to numerous historic sites dating from the classical and Byzantine periods. It has a very chequered history with centuries of invasions, occupations and movements of populations.
Crete is the southernmost island in Europe and the largest island in Greece. It boasts a wide variety of landscapes with everything from mountains to long sandy beaches and rocky bays. There is an abundance of wildlife with a number of endemic species of flora and fauna. Exploring the island is a real treat with lots of walk, drives and rides that lead you across stunning plateaux and dramatic mountains.
Rhodes is the largest of the Dodecanese islands. It is perhaps most famous as home of one of the seven wonders of the ancient world- the Colossus of Rhodes. Centuries later it was occupied by the Knights of St John , the Ottomans and then the Italians, all of whom have left their mark. The medieval Rhodes Town is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The Peloponnese peninsula is in south western Greece separated from the central part of the country by the Isthmus and Gulf of Corinth. The area is literally the stuff of legends; Paris of Troy eloped from here with Helen and the Argonauts set sail from these shores. It is also home to the original Olympic games and Ancient Olympia is one of the not-to-be-missed highlights of the region.
Halkidiki is said to be a place where all your senses come to life, whether on the endless expanses of sand of the fashionable, cosmopolitan beaches, or in the intimacy of the many secluded bays and coves. The region is formed of three peninsulas or "feet", each with its own unique charm, history and magic.
