If you are starting to plan your vacations and holidays for the summer, why not have a look at what Greece has to offer. Greece has a huge selection of beautiful destinations for your holidays and vacations, and is one of the most popular in Europe.
With the magical Greek islands scattered all around the blue waters of the Ionian and Aegean Sea, you will easily find an island to suit your exact tastes and requirements. Whether you are seeking a destination where you can simply relax and unwind, or one where you can take part in a range of activities, Greece has exactly what you need. The islands of the Cyclades, Dodecanese, Ionian and others each have their own unique beauty and charm, and offer the perfect setting for your Greek vacations.
With some of the most beautiful beaches in the world, Greece is the perfect destination for those seeking to escape the cold and gray, and step into blue skies, hot sunshine and a friendly and hospitable atmosphere for which the Greeks are renowned for.
The city of Athens is the entry point to a high number of visitors to Greece. However, if you are planning on flying to Athens and from there taking a ferry boat from the port of Piraeus over to one of the stunning Greek islands, it is worth considering spending a day or two in the city, so that you can see the famous sights, stroll around Plaka and Monastiraki in the evening, and experience the city that shaped the Western world.
Though Athens is often referred to a city of pollution and overcrowding, it is actually one of immense charm and beauty – you just need to scratch the surface a little, and the real, glistening Athens will soon appear right before you.
Mainland Greece also offers a great selection of unique and beautiful destinations. From the Peloponnese in the South, to Epirus in the west, Thessaly and Pelion in the East and Macedonia in the North, wherever you plan to head to in Greece, you will find a landscape of immense natural beauty, and the perfect setting from which to experience all that Greece has to offer.
During the summer months of July and August, the temperatures are at their peak, and the heat can be pretty intense at times. August especially is an extremely busy month, and one when most Greeks also take their vacations. If you are planning to visiting Greece during the summer, it might be worthwhile visiting in either June or September, when the heat is still comfortable, and many of the popular destinations are yet to be overtaken by tourists and visitors.
Greece is a truly special country, and one that offers so much. From the ancient temples, museums and archaeological sites, to the beautiful sandy beaches, whitewashed houses and a perfect combination of blue sky and seas, you will find yourself in true paradise, and enjoying the holiday you have always been dreaming about.
