Where marble gods and nymphs of the ancient world look down on the bustle of Athens traffic in the streets below, and elsewhere whitewashed villages on steep slopes of barren islands, where life is simple.
MUST-DO GREECE EXPERIENCES
Entry point for most is via the metropolis of Athens, a great city for culture buffs and history lovers. Stay at AthensWas perfectly located on the pedestrian-only avenue linking all the archaeological sites. If nightclubs and tavernas are more your scene, the Hotel Plaka is the place to be with amazing views of the Parthenon from its garden rooftop bar.
Colours of turquoise on white with a splash of hot pink bougainvillea are picture postcard scenes of island life in Greece.
Grey green olive groves, lemon leaves and lamb fragrant with rosemary are scents of memories dancing in squares, long games of backgammon and siestas to escape the afternoon heat. And when the evening sky turns rose pink to gold, hit the tavernas to party with the locals.
Greece is a place that gets into your skin, where whispered stories of mythology ensnare your heart forever.
