The first thing you think of, when you think of Greece is Athens and its ancient Acropolis although there are many more things to see in the city, including the old part of town, Plaka. On the mainland there is much to see including the White Tower and promenade at Thessaloniki and the ancient theatre and ruins at Larissa. You can see monasteries cut into the rock-face at Meteora and the holy mountain of Mount Athos.  Explore the Vikos Gorge and Vikos National Park and Mount Olympus too.

Mykonos is nicknamed ‘little Venice’ and is considered to be a sophisticated party island. In Corfu, you will see the influences left previous invaders and a mix of French and Italian architecture -although it is mostly known for its beaches and night life. Rhodes is very historical, with the Acropolis at Lindos and the medieval Rhodes Town.

If you visit Crete, not only are there great beaches and a national park but also many ancient sites such as the Palace of Knossos.
