Treasuring sun-bleached ancient ruins, endless aquamarine coastline, and majestic landscapes, Greece lies at the southern most tip of Balkan Peninsula. From viewing the ancient structures in the capital city of Athens to hiking in Mount Olympus, from partying in the Mykonos to seeing the stunning sunsets in the islands of Santorini, Greece offers its travellers a magical experience. One should not miss out on the Hellenic Festival held in Athens every summer. Taste your way through the regional cheese variety found here from crumbling feta to honeyed soft cheese, crisp wine from grapes ripened under the Mediterranean sun, and rich layered Mousakas.
A magnet for outdoor hobby lovers, Greece allows travelers to walk on its cobbled footpaths, watch for dolphins and sea turtles, and cycle through lush forests.
