Located at the southernmost tip of the Balkan Peninsula, Greece offers visitors an extensive history, fascinating mythology, amazing archaeology and beautiful golden beaches. Our range of Greece tours will enable you to explore everything this Olympic nation has to offer.
The Olympics have certainly played a large role in the history of Greece, with the first games taking place in the ancient town of Olympia in 776BC. Today, the flame for each modern Olympic Games is lit at this iconic site, which is now a UNESCO World Heritage site, before being carried around the world.
One of the most recognisable landmarks in Greece can be found in the nation’s capital. The Acropolis is the site of the ancient high city of Athens - most recognisable by the towering Parthenon, which overlooks the Greek capital. Witnessing ancient architectural wonders such as the Temple of Athena Nike, the Erectheion and the Propylaea will leave you completely mesmerised.
Greece is also widely regarded for its stunning islands, of which there are 6,000 in total but only 227 of them are inhabited. These islands offer a great opportunity to soak up the Mediterranean sun whilst relaxing on a golden beach.
