Greece is known for 3 things:
- its ancient civilization
- its amazing landscapes and
- its high developed tourism
Really beloved by people, this country is so rich in culture and beauty that it never seems to be completely explored, no matter how many times you visit it. This is, after all, one of the reasons that brought it in the list with the top 20 tourist destinations worldwide.
Travel to Greece has become an activity that is almost a “must” according to the modern life style. During the last decades it has been always visited by the jet set of each era, including politicians, musicians, actors, artists and other celebrities with a significant contribution to Greece’ extensive popularity.
Apart from its high cosmopolitan side, Greece has a more substantial way to attract. With its numerous sights covering thousands of years in history and its natural beauty offering a variety for all tastes, it is not an exaggeration to say that Greece is an actual heaven.
In case you wonder when you should travel to Greece, it depends more on what type of vacations you prefer most. If you are looking for privacy, relaxation and less crowded places, then you should choose the period between Easter and mid-June. During this season, it will be easier to find accommodation and book tickets for your transportation to and from Greece. On the other hand, there is always the crowded high season that lasts from mid-July to the end of August. In that case you should bear in mind that this is the period that the most tourist sights and the other facilities in your destination will probably be crowded. Apart from the summer, winter is still not excluded and is a very good season for a Greece travel. Of course, there is no doubt that Greek islands travel is much preferred by tourists. However, the ski resorts on the mainland receive enormous amounts of tourists every year, such as Kalavryta or Arachova. Moreover, on the most of the touristy islands there are many hotels, bars, restaurants that remain open all the year round.
The transportation for your Greece travel is something you don’t have to worry about, since it is one of the more easy-to-reach destinations. Obviously the fastest, easiest and cheapest way to travel to Greece is by plane, especially if you live in Northern Europe. Many companies propose the route as well as many charter flights.
If you like traveling by sea or it is more convenient for the region you are starting from, there are also ferries to Patra from Trieste, Venice, Ancona, Bari and Brindisi stopping in between at Corfu or Igoumenitsa. It is also easy to travel around Greece, thanks to the comprehensive public transport system, with buses covering the land transport network and reaching even the smallest villages. Trains are also a good choice, but only on places available. Finally, for those in a hurry, Greece has also a domestic air network, which covers many destinations.
Whatever type of traveler you belong to, you will not be disappointed by your Greece travel! Whether you like beaches or mountains, winter or summer, relaxing or partying, Greece is a choice for anything you wish.
