Thousands of years of fascinating, tumultuous history await you on the Greek mainland. Visit ancient ruins, museums full of invaluable art, monuments and stadiums, while learning about the inspirational philosophers and mythical Gods that have contributed to the country’s grand history. Regarded as the birthplace of Western democracy, you’ll be able to see where it all began in Athens, a modern capital swathed in history. Visit Mount Olympus, the home of the Gods, test the acoustics in the incredibly well preserved Theatre of Epidaurus and learn about the Byzantine Empire in Thessaloniki. Remember, a trip through Greece is as much about the journey as the destination, and picture-perfect old towns and mountainous panoramas will delight your senses along the way.
