Santorini

Santorini looks exactly like a fairyland, flattering with whitewashed buildings, haphazard but cute little colourful houses, spiral pathways, towering sapphire domes, and stretches of azure water and equally azure sky. The houses and hotels are built on cliffs which add the appeal of the place. Santorini is one of the most popular Greece’s tourist attractions.

Athens

Athens is a world unto itself. You could easily spend all your time in Athens, but that would mean missing out on many other great things to see in the country. With just two or three days though you can take in the highlights such as the Acropolis, ancient Agora and National Archaeological Museum. That will also leave you with time to wander the colourful streets of the Plaka and Monastiraki neighbourhoods, as well as soak up the atmosphere of the hilly district of Kolonaki and more.

The classic whitewashed buildings with blue towering domes signify the Greek architecture. There are several meandering streets in Mykonos that are charming to the fullest. Iconic windmills have become the centre of attraction of this quaint city. The rich culture of Mykonos and the authentic delicacies of crabmeat are the major crowd pullers.

Crete

The largest of the Greek islands, Crete is a spacious land of pleasing contrasts where landscapes range from stunning coastline to rugged mountains and rolling countryside dotted with olive trees. Bustling metropolitan cities spread beyond to quiet villages centred around outdoor coffee shops. Steeped in history, Crete still bears archaeological traces of the many civilizations that inhabited it down through the centuries.

Meteora

The English translation of the Greek word ‘Meteora’ is suspended in the air. The phrase aptly describes the monasteries of Meteora that are almost like suspended in the air, over the huge rock cliffs. The monasteries at the altitude of more than 1,200 feet overlook the misty valleys and well-settled villages of Kalambaka and Kastraki. Some of the monasteries take back to the early 14th century. It absolutely tops the chart of the most beautiful places in Greece.
