Ancient cities, lively ports, countless islands, compose a country that is easy to fall in love with. It’s loved by sun-seekers. Distant Rhodes, pretty Cephalonia, and mythical Crete are great locations for rest and relaxation. Beyond the beach, there are ancient civilizations waiting to be discovered, too. Athens’ Acropolis wows, while Marathon and Knossos are both worthy of a visit. But there’s more than just history and lounging by the pool. Thessaloniki thrums with youthful energy, while recent political upheaval means the capital has an undeniable creative buzz unmatched anywhere else in Southern Europe.
