Greece Holiday

Learn about the roots of Western civilization and build a nice tan on a Mediterranean island in this ancient southeastern European nation.

Nowhere is classical civilization more alive than in Greece. Ancient temples stand as if they were recent installations. Enjoy thousands of miles of Mediterranean coastline and hundreds of beautiful islands in one of Europe’s most popular destinations.

Visit Athens to join the millions of tourists who come each year to see some of the most famous buildings of classical antiquity. The city’s most visible landmark is the Acropolis, a complex from around 500 B.C. that stands atop a rocky bluff within the city. Examine the Parthenon, a Greek temple lined on all four sides by marble pillars. Find additional archaeological sites throughout Greece, like the ruins of Delphi at Mount Parnassus, north of Athens.

Despite the mainland’s long and beautiful coastline, the best way to enjoy the sea in Greece is to visit some of the country’s islands. Make a stop at the gorgeous seaside village of Firá on the island of Santorini. With its blue domed roofs and whitewashed houses clinging to the edge of a steep seaside cliff, Firá is one of the most picturesque villages in the world. Explore the island farther to see that it is actually the cone of an active volcano.

With 1000-foot- (300-meter-) tall cliffs surrounding it, Santorini is not a beach site. Head to the resort island of Mykonos to find one of the best beaches in Greece.

Most people associate Greece with classical civilization and the sea. However, don’t miss one of the country’s best attractions: the Meteora Monasteries. Located in the central mountains of the Greek mainland, these monasteries were built at the top of tall rock pillars to protect them from invaders. When you visit, climb the stairs carved into the pillars and look out from the high vantage points of the rocky bluffs over the rocky lands.

Fly into Greece via the Athens International Airport. Take a boat or a plane from the mainland to any of the hundreds of surrounding islands.

Q: Should I book a car while on holiday in Greece?

A: Many travellers like to use public transportation or ride-sharing services when they're staying in Athens and Thessaloniki. It's a terrific way of avoiding costly parking fees and having to navigate through bumper-to-bumper traffic. But if you're planning to head out of town and soak up the region of West Attica or elsewhere, you may want to think about booking a ride. Get your scenic road trip off to the best start by browsing our guide to Cheap Car Hire in Greece.

Q: Which airports can I fly in to for a holiday to Greece?

A: Grab your passport and get ready to begin your wonderful adventure in Greece from one of these major international terminals:

  • Athens (ATH-Eleftherios Venizelos): 4,874 international flights per month.
  • Thessaloniki (SKG-Macedonia): 1,256 international flights per month.
  • Heraklion (HER-Nikos Kazantzakis): 1,159 international flights per month.

Q: What are the most popular types of hotels for a holiday to Greece?

A: Greece has no shortage of comfortable and convenient accommodation. Hotels are a reliable choice. Apartments, apart-hotels and villas also offer great alternatives.

Q: What does a Greece holiday booking with Expedia include?

A: Convenient flights, comfy hotels and a snazzy car to zoom around in — and that's just for starters. Expedia also has a wonderful variety of activities and experiences. Have a look at what's on offer and start arranging your dream escape in Greece.

Q: What is the best way to save money on my holiday to Greece?

A: Locking in a package takes the hassle out of travelling, and it can save you some serious dollars too. Hotels, Rental Cars, Activities — Expedia is here to help. Bundle the lot and start dreaming of what you can do with all your extra spending money.

Q: What are the best things to do in Greece?

A: Be sure to add Technological Cultural Park and Chaos Meteor Crater to your must-do list if you're stopping in Athens. Shopping Street is another favourite of locals and travellers alike.

If Thessaloniki is your next port of call, you'll also want to explore Alexander the Great Garden, Agia Theodora and Rotònta - Roman Temple.

And last but not least, Volos. Here, we'd recommend going to Tsalapatas Brickworks Museum, Theophilos Museum and Sesklo.
