Holidays in Greece

Top Greek Islands

  • If you want a relaxing break then Kefalonia holidays provide a serene retreat for romantic couples, or simply something more laid back for families travelling with children.
  • Kos holidays are certainly more lively with a great nightlife scene and excellent boat trips from the island's main port of Kos Town.  
  • Alternatively, Corfu is a great all-rounder with an array of beaches and affordable accommodation. You're bound to find something there to suit your group!

A flavoursome mix of buzzing night spots, freshly-caught seafood, flaming Mediterranean passion and ancient mythology, holidays in Greece offer a spellbinding destination - whether you’re exploring archaeological ruins or soaking up the sun on a sandy beach.    

Greece is home to some of the world's most magnificent and cherished architecture - such as the Parthenon in Athens. It is also the setting for some of humanity’s oldest tales, and its ancient culture has had an influence that reaches into all aspects of Western society.    

Holidays in Greece offer a fabulous choice of destinations

Athens, the birthplace of democracy, remains a major European centre of culture. With its dramatic classical sites and outstanding museums, it continues to be hugely popular with visitors. The Greek capital also boasts the finest restaurants and the most eclectic nightlife in the country. The return of the Olympic Games in 2004 saw significant regeneration, with tourist facilities and public transport network being improved, and the New Acropolis Museum finally opening in 2009.

On the coast, you’ll find busy, colourful beaches as well as secluded sandy coves set against the turquoise waters of the Mediterranean Sea and regularly bathed in sunshine. Offshore, Greece has an incredible 1,400 islands; gems include Mykonos, renowned for its nightlife, the volcanic island of Santorini, which is truly picturesque, peaceful retreats such as Kafalonia and Amorgos, and of course Crete, with its beautiful beaches and excellent hiking terrain. The diving and sailing conditions around pretty much all the Greek islands are second to none. Find out more about Crete holidays.    

Greek cuisine blends local and foreign influences, particularly from Italy and Turkey. Olive oil is ubiquitous, and tomatoes and lemon feature a lot. Bread and wine are always served at the dinner table. If you want good food, look for where the locals eat. As well as traditional Greek cuisine, the best restaurants also have more contemporary dishes on their menus.    

With a whole of host of great island destinations, Greece is a great holiday choice with great fun to be had on Rhodes holidays or a holiday in Zante. Find out more about things to do in Greece here.
