Things to do

Greece is home to some of the world’s best-preserved historical sites, including temples, tombs and palaces. You’ll find them almost everywhere you go, but Athens, Crete and Rhodes offer some of the finest examples and are well worth visiting. Even the authentic villages on the islands of Santorini, Lefkas, and Corfu will give you a feeling of time gone by, complete with cobbled streets and whitewashed buildings. If you want to relax on a sandy beach by day and then be entertained from dusk until the wee small hours, one of Greece’s purpose-built resorts should have everything you need to party the week away.
