Overview for Greece

Greece has something for everyone. Adrenalin-focussed travellers can climb mountains, hike, windsurf and dive. Party types can enjoy pulsating nightlife in Greece's vibrant modern cities and on islands such as Mykonos, Ios and Santorini. Wanderer's can just island hop to their heart's content.

Perhaps, though, the true allure of Greece is due to less tangible attributes - the dazzling clarity of the light and the Aegean waters, the floral aromas that permeate the air, the spirit of the place - for there is hardly a grove, mountain or stream that is not sacred to a deity, and the ghosts of the past still linger everywhere.
