What does it say about a country if it receives over 25 million tourists every year? It says that you should jump on the bandwagon and visit the country for yourself to find out what its deal is. The beautiful country of Greece is well-known for its gorgeous beaches, rich culture and heritage, ancient archaeological sites and impressive history. So, it is safe to say that this country will appeal to all generations and tastes.

With around 6,000 islands and some of the world’s most important historical sites, every visitor will be spoilt for choice. Be it a visit to Athens exploring the symbol of the city – the Acropolis. Or travel to what is considered to be perhaps the most dramatic Greek isle – Santorini. To witness the most bizarre yet mesmerizing work of nature, visit the Metéora Monasteries on the Thessaly Plain. These centuries’ old monasteries on hilltops will stay with you long after you have left Greece. There is so much to see and so much to do in this country that you will want to keep coming back for more. Honestly, is it any wonder that Greece is a favorite holiday destination in Europe?
