Greece is the birthplace of democracy and the Olympic Games, and everyone knows a tale of Greek Mythology. Follow the footsteps of ancient gods and myths when visiting the Acropolis in Athens, Delphi, Olympia and Epidaurus. Another highlight is Meteora, a rock formation with Eastern Orthodox monasteries. Beside the impressing culture and history, the country offers plenty of charming white-blue islands with picturesque streets, seaside tavernas and romantic sunsets. With its vast stretches of Mediterranean coastline most of the scenic islands you find in the Ionian and Aegean Seas like Rhodes, Santorini, Mykonos and Zanthykos. Relax at the beach, enjoy the nightlife or do some island-hopping across the blue waters. For active travelers there is another option: The turquoise coastline combined with green hills and idyllic mountain villages are the perfect scenery for a hiking vacation like in Corfu.
