Greece - a place fit for the Greek gods and a place that can never be etched from your memory. Strategically located on the southeastern tip of Europe, this country has close proximity to Asia and Africa. The birthplace of the Olympic Games, Greece also conjures images of archeological sites and ancient ruins. Over 300 days of sunshine annually, golden sand beaches and crystal clear waters ensure flights to Greece are a perennial summer vacation affair. Arrive in this country via the international airports located at Athens, Chania, Rhodes or the Heraklion. There are various carriers flying to this country but the best flights are found with Aegean, Olympic airlines and Ryanair.
Athens, the capital of Greece and one of the oldest cities in the world, has been continuously inhabited since 3000 BC. It boasts the heritage of its mighty civilization and empire and is considered the historical capital of Europe. Athens' historic center, the Acropolis, is the most coveted walk for ancient history and heritage. The high point of this city is a visit to the marble Parthenon, which once housed the large gold ivory statue of Athena. Thessaloniki, the Greek port, has been rebuilt with a modern European layout but still preserves the historical remains of Roman, Byzantine and Ottoman empires. Apart from the sand and beaches at Elafonissi or Kleftiko, the Acropolis Museum and the Temple of Hephaestus are absolute musts when visiting this country.
