Greece, the birthplace of Democracy! In Greece, sea and mountain meet to dramatic effect, and everything is bathed in the bright, relentless light of the Mediterranean sun. Life here can be what you make it: either an endless party or a quiet affair. The smells of thyme and lavender, the shops tucked away on tiny island streets, the welcoming people, the undiscovered beaches, the gorgeous food and the epic history will make you want to plan your next visit back to Greece before you’ve even left.

There are so many sites to visit in Greece that it can be hard to choose where to go. From exploring the Acropolis to watching the sunset in Santorini, we’ve compiled a list of our Top Places to Visit in Greece.

PARTHENON

The Parthenon is a historical site and Acropolis museum dedicated to the Greek goddess, Athena. It was once a symbol of Athens, Greece and Western civilization. Today, it is one of the most visited sites in Greece and is still considered a symbol of ancient Greece.

 

NAFPLION

Explore Greece’s first capital: Nafplion. Considered one of the most beautiful cities of Greece, Nafplion is a car-free old town filled with neoclassical mansions.

 

METEORA

Explore the world-famous rock formations of Meteora. Monasteries belong to the UNESCO World Heritage list where bizarre outcrops are capped by the centuries-old monasteries, 6 of which are open to the public.

 

 

SANTORINI

Stunning Santorini is the most dramatic of all the Greek islands. It is best known for the west coast cliff-top towns of Fira and Oia, its unique wines and the archaeological site of Akrotiri.

 

MYKONOS

Greece’s most glamorous island destination. Chic boutique hotels, classy restaurants, all-day beach bars with live music and astonishing beaches. Enjoy the sunset in Palia Venetia, Mykonos with a cocktail in hand.

 

DELPHI

Visit with an Oracle by visiting Delphi, believed to be the cradle of the world. On the Greek mainland, Delphi is a UNESCO World Heritage site. Built on the slopes of Mount Parnassus, overlooking a dramatic ravine, the site was sacred to the ancients, who came here to worship Apollo (their God of light, prophecy, music and healing) and to ask advice from the mythical Oracle.

 

RHODES

Get lost in a medieval maze in the UNESCO World Heritage Palace of the Knights and Rhodes’s old town. The old town is one of Greece’s top tourist destinations. It is enclosed by an impressive fortification system, including monumental towers and gates built by the Knights of St. John after they took control of the island in the 14th century. Nearby attractions include the pretty hillside coastal town of Lindos.

CRETE

Crete island, the biggest Greek island, can be a destination on its own for your entire trip to Greece. Choose from bewitching beaches, enchanting villages, splendid food and drink, unique sites and outdoor adventures. Some of the top places to visit in Greece – Crete include:

Balos, Vai, Elafonisi beaches, Krista, Chania old town, Hora Sfakion, Theriso villages, Knossos site and Heraklion museum, Spinalonga islet (used as a leper colony until the early 1950s), Phaestos, Malia, Lasithi Plateau, Palekastro and Samaria Gorge.
