If you thought Greece’s recent economic downturn had detracted from its standing as a premier holiday destination, then think again. Officially known as the Hellenic Republic, our luxury Greek holidays allow you to sample the country’s rich history and culture, as well as its attractive Mediterranean climate, to ensure you have an unforgettable experience.
We can think of nothing better than unwinding on one of Greece’s beautifully secluded islands. While their sheer number might seem daunting at first, all of them offer sun, sand and ultimate relaxation.
Central and northern regions of the country offer great opportunities to wonder off the beaten track. But while you enjoy the area’s tranquil sparsity of tourists, don’t forget that there is still plenty to see and do. Luxury Greek holidays can also include trips to Larissa and Thessaloniki, which will both rightfully vie for your attention, though it’s really things like the serene hilltop monasteries of Meteora and the prime trekking opportunities of Olympus National Park that provide the area’s biggest attractions.
To say that Athens boasts an incredible history is an understatement. Located in the Attica region, many regard it as the birthplace of Western civilisation. Marvel at the ancient ruins of the Acropolis, soak in the culture of world-class museums and wash it all down with a spot of shopping at Athens’ famous street stalls.
We advise that you seek advice on recommended vaccinations and precautions from a health professional – either a GP, a practice nurse, a pharmacist or a travel health clinic – ideally at least eight weeks before departure. Visit NHS Fit for Travel for Greece specific guidance.
