colorful Greek islands. The islands have something to
offer for everyone. Visit the excavated ancient ruins
of Akrotiri on Santorini, once buried by a massive
volcanic eruption. Enjoy the beautiful colors of the
Santorini landscape. Visit the Minoan civilization on
Crete or relax on the beaches or at the many outdoor
restaurants and patios.
Begin your journey in Athens, the cradle of democracy
and her spectacular ancient ruins and museums. Travel
south to the first mainland Greek civilization in the
Peloponnese and visit the citadels of Mycenae and
impressive Tiryns. Journey on to Olympia where the
Olympics all began. Continue on to central Greece and
visit the oracle at Delphi and the cliff top
monasteries in Meteora.
Last but equally spectacular is northern Greece.
Particularly the Macedonian lands of Philip and
Alexander the Great. Many travelers omit this part of
Greece from their trip. Take a look and read why it
should be visited. A brief history and discussion on
Macedonian, Roman and Byzantine archaeological sites
has now been added to this section.
When visiting Greece, I suggest that you
make two trips here because there is so much history
to see, beaches to relax on and culture to enjoy. On
your first trip visit Athens and the Greek islands.
Your second trip should be to the Greek mainland.
