Climb to a monastery

Hike up steep rock-carved staircases to reach the monasteries of Meteora, perched high up on their cliffs.

 

Hike a gorge

Take through the raw beauty of Samariá Gorge, where cliff faces reach up to 500 metres high and at some places are just three metres apart.  End at the remote coastal village of Agia Roumeli, from where you take a ferry back.

 

Eat your heart out

Olive oil, lemon juice, vegetables, and herbs, grains and bread, wine, cheese, fish, lamb, poultry, rabbit and pork are the main ingredients making Greek cuisine famous all over the world.

 

A culture of coffee

Lingering, lazy and chat and gossip filled - that is how in Greece you take your coffee, all the while doing some serious people watching.

 

Glorious beaches

No visit to Greece would be complete without a visit to its beaches.  Whether you like a bustling strip of sand where the jetset bronze their bodies, local beaches where families play with their children, or hidden coves to have all to yourself, Greece has something for everyone.

 

Find a peaceful spot

Be it on the island of Paros or the hidden gem of Evia, in a forgotten cove, walking an ancient path or in a Byzantine church or Orthodox monastery, Greece has plenty to offer those seeking quietude.
