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.

Mastic Island
Rich history and scenic landscapes make Chios one of the most popular tourist destinations in the Aegean. Nicknamed the "Mastic Island" because it remains one of the world's major producers and exporters of mastic gum, Chios offers visitors a chance to explore medieval villages and age-old monasteries. Start at the ancient settlement serving as the island's center of shopping, dining, and entertainment. Alternatively, make the southwestern port of Mesta your base for touring a cluster of satellite islands reachable by boat or ferry. The island is nearer to the Turkish coastline than the Greek mainland, and as a result shares much of eastern Turkey's topography of rugged crags and fragrant citrus groves.

Emerald Isle
Still largely unaffected by commercial tourism, Lesbos maintains its leisurely pace of life and offers visitors a tranquil landscape of lush olive groves and age-old fishing settlements. The Ottomans called this island the "Garden of the Empire," valuing its pristine natural scenery and rich cultural heritage. Lesbos once drew philosophers like Aristotle and Epicurus, who ran a renowned philosophical academy on the island. Today Lesbos' coastline attracts hikers, cyclists, and beachgoers, while its unspoiled forested areas draw ardent birdwatchers. Begin your island adventure at Mytilene, a lively port town packed with museums, churches, and traditional taverns.
