Greece hugs the southern end of the Balkan Peninsula. Its more than 2,000 islands extend into the warm waters of the Aegean, Ionian and Mediterranean seas and the Sea of Crete. 

Its location between three continents – Europe, Africa and Asia – and its past rulers – the ancient Greeks, the Roman and Byzantine empires and the Ottomans – have given it a fascinating heritage. Greece’s ruins are world famous – from the Parthenon on the Acropolis in Athens to Delphi on the slopes of Mount Parnassus and Olympia, the sanctuary dedicated to Zeus and site of the ancient Olympics.

For bathing, basking and eating, its islands are world-famous too. There are several chains including the Argo Saronic Gulf Islands, Cyclades, Dodecanese, Ionian Islands and the Sporades. The Cyclades are the most famous. There are 39 in total, 24 of which are inhabited. Seeing the postcard-perfect little white churches standing against azure-blue skies and even bluer, sparkling seas is reason enough to book flights to Greece.
