When looking for holiday destinations in Europe, Greece and its many fascinating islands are often overlooked, but there is so much to see and do in the country and so many benefits to visiting, some of which we’re exploring in this article.
Firstly, it is in the Med! The Mediterranean sea hosts many of Europe’s finest seaside destinations and stunning beaches and Greece, having so many Greek Islands, has a huge amount of coastline, meaning so many beaches which you can explore, both busy and lively and quiet and secluded.
Greek cuisine is another massive benefit of going to the country. Their food has become more and more popular in recent years as Greek restaurants pop up around North America and other countries around the world, famous dishes such as Moussaka, Stifado and more are cooked authentically in Greek tavernas, well worth visiting.
Many Aegean islands also offer famous nightlife, depending on where you want to go! There is something for everyone.
My personal favorite plus point about Greece travel is the fact that there is so much history. Ancient Greece and even Mythology have led to a huge amount of artefacts and interesting sights to see, as well as tours of stunning places and historical venues. People have studied Ancient Greece for a lifetime and still are left with stories to explore, the culture is one which you can always find something new and intriguing to explore.
A hot, beautiful country with so much historical relevance is a wonderful choice for many holidaymakers, and Greece should not be overlooked!
