Greece

Birthplace of European Civilization

Where ancient worlds, picture perfect villages and idyllic beaches meet

 

Greece’s Mediterranean climate and captivating culture are just a couple of the reasons why thousands of visitors flock to its shores every year. With an abundance of stunning natural scenery, fascinating historical sites, intriguing mythology and flavoursome cuisine, it’s not difficult to see why this archipelago is one of Europe’s most popular holiday destinations. Treat yourself to one of Azure’s luxury hotels in Greece for a trip you’ll never forget.

The islands

With their idyllic shores, beautiful towns and sleepy fishing villages, the Greek islands can make the perfect location for a relaxing holiday.  Each island is unique, with its own distinctive landscape, cuisine and culture. For those wanting an active break, there are pursuits on offer ranging from diving and kitesurfing to cycling and trekking, while nature lovers can explore lush forests and keep a lookout for creatures including sea turtles and dolphins. For some unadulterated rest and relaxation, make your way to the many world-class beaches, while if you want to step back in time, you can explore the ancient Greek ruins and Minoan palaces that dot the islands.

Crete, with its mountainous interior, abundant vineyards and golden beaches, is a popular place for a relaxing break. Explore the picturesque town of Elounda on the north coast. With its handsome fishing harbour, lively centre and stylish eateries and bars, it’s not hard to see why this spot attracts discerning holidaymakers.

Rhodes is also on many people’s travel wish-list, with its glorious shorelines and medieval Old Town featuring charming traditional cobbled streets and classical architecture. The island also boasts crystal clear waters and tranquil beaches, as well as picture-perfect towns and ancient ruins.>

Corfu is home to top-class resorts too and there is plenty to explore on the island, from its fertile, verdant interior to its sheltered coves.

The mainland

Greece’s capital city, Athens, combines ancient history with modern-day developments. Must-see attractions include the awe-inspiring Acropolis, comprising a 100-metre-tall rock of limestone, the famous ruins of the Parthenon, Erechtheion, the Temple of Athena Nike and Propylaia. Visit the Acropolis Museum and National Archaeological Museum for a further taste of the country’s fascinating past.

The rest of the hilly Greek mainland is home to even more ancient attractions, including the spectacular oracle at Delphi, the surreal monasteries of Meteora and the Byzantine mosaics at the Osios Loukas monastery.

For some of the country’s best beaches and an array of other attractions, make your way to Halkidiki in the north. As well as sparkling sands, this region offers scenic vineyards, historical sites and terrain that’s ideal for exploring by bike.
