The Acropolis of Athens is one of the most famous monuments in the world. Dating back all the way to the 5th century BC, the Acropolis is home to the Parthenon, the Propylaea, the Erechtheion, and the Temple of Athena Nike.
If there is only one site you visit during your trip to Greece, the Acropolis is easily one of the best and most staggering in the entire country.
Found in Heraklion, the Archaeological Museum is widely regarded as not only the best museum in Greece but one of the best in the entire world when it comes to Minoan art and artifacts from ancient civilizations.
The museum has artifacts dating all the way back to the Neolithic period and 6000 BCE, with the most modern room having artifacts from the Classical Greek and Greco-Roman periods.
If you’re going to be in Greece, you need to find time to travel to one of its many beautiful beaches. Agrari Beach, located on the bustling island of Mykonos, has everything you need. Sun, sea, soft, sandy beaches, and you are walking distance from bars and restaurants.
Considering Mykonos is a hub for partying and Greek nightlife, Agrari is an idyllic spot to spend the day or recover from a night on the town.
If the beach isn’t for you, then Plaka Forest is the spot you need to visit. Found on Kos, the forest is home to thousands of trees, lush grass, relaxing paths, and rest spots and is home to a number of peacocks.
Plaka isn’t a place you will find in all the travel guides, but it is ideal for a long walk or an afternoon picnic with the family.
Mount Olympus isn’t just a mythical place from legend, but a mountain you can visit, climb and explore. The area has been a national park for years, with a wide variety of fauna and flora calling the area home.
Santorini is home to the beautiful white and blue-painted houses that are used for almost every travel brochure for Greece. The seaside homes draw hundreds of thousands of tourists and visitors every single year.
Santorini itself has gorgeous beaches, crystal clear water and is a miniature version of Greece itself, having numerous archaeological sites, great food, exquisite sights, and much more.
The Temple of Delphi, in Greek history, was seen as the precinct and seat of Pythia, the oracle that was consulted for decisions throughout the ancient classical period of the country. Ancient Greeks also considered Delphi to be the center of the world, which is marked by a stone you can see.
There may be more famous temples and architectural sites, but there are very few more spiritual and tied to the history of Greece than Delphi.
If you want a true experience of Greek nightlife, with parties that will rival anything you could find in Las Vegas or Ibiza, you need to visit Mykonos. It is the go-to island for anyone looking to get lost in music and dancing for a few days.
Over and above the partying, Mykonos has the same incredible beaches you find all over Greece, combined with friendly people and more delicious food. It is the one-stop-shop for any party animal visiting Greece.
Museum of the Olive
Greece is most famous for its olives and olive oil. The Museum of the Olive and Olive Oil takes you on a journey through growing olives, how they are looked after, packaged, or turned into olive oil.
You can buy some genuine Greek olive oil, taste everything they have to offer, and dive into a product that has made the world of cooking go round for many, many years.
