Greece travel guide

Beaches · Ruins · History Museums
Few places manage to capture the world's imagination quite like Greece, a land of sun-kissed coastlines, tranquil whitewashed villages, lively seaside towns, and well-preserved ancient sites. One of the world's top tourist destinations since ancient times, the country draws nearly 20 million visitors each year. Athens, the birthplace of Western civilization, continues to attract the biggest crowds and serves as a base for exploring the country and its 227 inhabited islands. Away from its cities, Greece features a picturesque countryside of olive groves, vineyards, and tiny settlements nestled against rolling hills and rugged mountain ranges. Explore the old mainland on foot and discover the islands on a guided boat or ferry tour.

Santorini travel guide

Beaches · Landmarks · Ruins
Wine Island
Known for dramatic views and romantic sunsets, the island of Santorini draws visitors with its long string of black, white, and red beaches. The largest and most significant of a small group of volcanic islands located just 200 km (120 mi) southeast of Greece's mainland, Santorini boasts just over 15,000 permanent residents. Created by a massive volcanic eruption that likely destroyed a single large island, the archipelago still features an active volcano, which saw its last eruption in the 1950s. The easiest way to explore Santorini's craggy coastline is on foot. Start by visiting the archaeological sites on the island's southwestern side, which offer a chance to discover the area's ancient past with unobstructed views of the famed volcano.

Central Greece travel guide

Ruins · History Museums · Churches
Central Greece became a major travel destination thousands of years ago, known around the ancient world as the home of the famous oracle of Apollo. Today, the small town of Delphi and its eponymous archaeological site top the itinerary of most visitors to Central Greece. Sightseers visit this site by the thousands to admire the mastery of ancient Greek builders, who constructed a vast complex of buildings to mark what they thought of as the center of the universe. The rest of the region remains a less-trodden land of pristine mountains, rivers, forests, ravines, and caves. Central Greece also contains a long coastline and boasts some of the finest beaches in the Mediterranean.

West Greece travel guide

Ruins · History Museums · Churches
In contrast to the country's island destinations, West Greece boasts a blend of trendy resorts and pristine natural areas. The region includes the western section of the Greek mainland and the northwestern corner of the Peloponnese, a major tourist destination in and of itself. Culturally and geographically distinct from the rest of the country, West Greece contains valleys and dense forests, sheltering wildlife and native plants. In between these unspoiled natural ecosystems, you'll find tiny traditional settlements, seemingly immune to mass tourism. The pace of life continues slowly here, allowing West Greece to remain one of the last truly "Greek" parts of the country.
