Ancient history mixes with tantalising beauty and style

With its huge smattering of islands and vast expanse of mainland, Greek holidays can vary from beachside breaks to cultural expeditions and island-hopping.

For those who like the beach to be at the centre of their trip, there are many to meet your needs on any of the Greek islands, but the crystal clear waters and feather-soft sands don’t just lend themselves to sun-worshippers, and if you’ve ever fancied an underwater adventure, there are plenty of opportunities to give snorkelling and scuba-diving a go.

You’ll find other lively pursuits centred around the volcanic landscape - perfect for mountaineering, horse-riding, canoeing or rafting - and if that’s whet your appetite for being at one with nature, Greece has a mass of wetlands set to rival Menorca and the Algarve for their bird watching credentials, with Prespa Lakes and Nestos Delta the most famed.

For more man-made attractions, history heroes will love Olympia – the site of the first ever Olympic games; the Acropolis in Athens, and the sacred city of Dion which lies at the foot of Mount Olympus. Or, if you’re a sucker for Greek mythology, add a trip to the Temple of Zeus to your agenda, or journey to Delphi – set high up on the cliff-side, the village is said to have been the navel of the Greek Gods. Even the islands lay claim to tales of mythology, with Knossos Royal Palace in Crete heralded as the place that King Minos’ wife gave birth to the legendary Minotaur – born part-man, part-bull.

Climate Guide

The most pleasant time to visit Greece will be during the months of June and September.  Temperatures soar in July and August with coastal areas experiencing more of a breeze.  Winter and Spring can be showery.
