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.

Zakynthos travel guide

Beaches · Nightlife · Islands
Flower of the East
Located just off the west coast of mainland Greece, Zakynthos enjoys a reputation as both a party destination and a family-friendly getaway. Packed with foreign tourists along its eastern and southeastern coastline, the island also features numerous tranquil pockets in its central region of forested mountains and rolling hills. Avoid the overcrowded east by discovering the island's less-explored northern sections, which contain a series of deep caves that feature sun reflecting on seawater and white stones, creating a striking shade of azure particular to this part of the world. The northern capes of the island also offer the calmest waters, which lap a string of developed beaches with plenty of modern facilities.

Lefkada travel guide

Beaches · Waterfalls · Parasailing & Paragliding
Connected to mainland Greece by a long causeway and floating bridge, Lefkada represents more than just an island paradise of modern seaside resorts and pristine Ionian beaches. Though it measures only 35 km (22 mi) from north to south, the island offers a mosaic of landscapes that include excellent mountain biking spots. Evade the big crowds of the southern coastline's popular beaches and soak up some local culture by visiting the small villages along Lefkada's eastern side, where you can explore traditional taverns known for serving local dishes to the tune of traditional live music.

Phocis Region travel guide

4.1
Ruins · History Museums · Sacred & Religious Sites
The Phocis region burst onto the world scene well before the 6th century BCE, when it controlled the famous oracle of Apollo. The town of Delphi and the ruins of Apollo's sanctuary remain the major attraction in Phocis, allowing visitors to peel back nearly 3,000 years of history and learn about the region's rich cultural heritage. The small but well-connected port towns of Itea and Galaxidi serve tourists on their way to Delphi's archaeological site. The rest of Phocis offers a mixture of well-developed coastal areas and untamed mountain ranges, providing ample opportunities for hiking and camping in one of Greece's least spoiled natural areas.
