Top 10 Attractions

Santorini Architecture

Newly-weds choose this Greek piece of heaven to cherish their wedded beginnings. No wonder, Santorini is an idyllic destination to inhale heavenly bliss. Perched on the cliffs of a volcanic caldera (crater) it stuns with picturesque views of typically Cycladic white-washed homes and blue-domed churches. The beauty of the multicolored cliffs, deep-blue water and spectacular sunsets makes even the most been-around travelers succumb to its drama. Choose the west coast for more celebrity upmarket settlements or the east if you are on a lower budget. Most importantly, make sure you take some spare memory cards for your camera for pic-taking is rather compulsive here!

Acropolis (Akropolis)

Visible from any corner of Athens, the Acropolis rises high and proud. Crowned by the internationally-renowned Parthenon, it manifests the unsurpassed grandeur of the Ancient civilization. Built entirely of marble, the temple used to house a giant statue of Athena, the city patron goddess. No visit to the city is complete without climbing the rocky crag. Stone-paved paths will lead you to a plethora of white Doric columns, monuments and temples gleaming in the sunlight. Brilliantly illuminated at night, the Acropolis is a magnificent view you shall never forget.

Meteora

Seeking retreat from the expanding Turkish occupation, the Eastern Orthodox monks found a perfect asylum here. Inaccessible rock pillars scattered over this uniquely sculpted landscape along with caverns and tall terraces provided an ideal place for spiritual contemplation. Although more than twenty monasteries used to perch on the steep rocks, only six remain today constituting one of the most important complexes in the country. ‘Suspended in the air' as the name translates, the monasteries are accessible only by steps cut into the rock formations. So up you climb contemplating earthly matters, but first of all, the impressive views!

Little Venice

Vibrant with cosmopolitan atmosphere, celebrities and fashionistas, Mykonos will party you crazy into the night. Once notorious as a hangout for the narcissistic and gay who paraded around the main town's harbor, this most popular Cyclades island seduces holidaymakers with its frantic vibe of hustling streets, music and oiled-up bodies. The minute you get tired of the jostling beaches and bars, head for Mykonos' Little Venice to delight in winding streets, colorful balconies and other charming hideaways.

Epidaurus Theater

At least a glance at the Sanctuary of Asklepios at Epidaurus is as obligatory as at least an attempt to climb the Acropolis. But the odds are high that once you see one of the purest masterpieces of Greek architecture - a healing and cultural center dating from the 4th century and dedicated to the god of medicine - you'll feel like doing everything but leaving, especially on being struck by the ancient splendor of the Theater. Take a rest up high on the ancient stone seat, marvel at the intact Orchestra reaching 20 meters in diameter, imagine who might have been sharing your limestone spot hundreds of years ago. Unmissable!

Beaches of Crete

However picky you might be, there is a sunny pit to suit any taste on Crete. From secluded beaches with the softest of white sand and enchanting coves with glistening colored pebbles to vast stretches of sandy gold and rocky coastlines, there is anything a true sun-lounger can dream of. Sand castle building with the kids? Just grab your spade and bucket and hit the Chrissi Akti or Agia Galini. For a little bit of pose and naked bodies show-off face the sun at Paleochora beach or just fancy your summertime laze on the most popular, palm-fringed Vai Beach, Crete's own glamorous Palm Beach. And when you feel the need to stay off the sun for a little while, lose yourself in the labyrinth of the magnificent Knossos Palace.

Delphi Ruins

Acclaimed as the center of the Earth and Universe, Delphi has always been a place of historic and spiritual significance. The ‘navel of the world' where the omniscient Oracle was to be advised blends harmoniously with the magnificent landscape and it surely is an absolute must destination for any history lover. Although the eternal flame is no longer burnt inside, a visit to the Temple of Apollo is obligatory. It is enough to consult the Opentravel.com and not Pythia to know that there are numerous sites in Delphi to explore including the Athenian Treasury, the Theater and the Stadium as well as the Tholos and many, many more.

Melissani Cave

Gliding over the uncovered area of the lake in a boat is enough for many to go ecstatic about the magical quality of ultramarine water and monumental walls all around it. Then the gondolier circumvents a small fig-covered island and continues inside the roofed section through a narrow passage. It is here that an ancient lantern was found in 1951 giving rise to further successful excavation projects, and ultimately to the partial collapse of the inner cave's roof. And regardless of whether you gaze down from the edge of the cliff or observe the spectacle of light and water from within the cave, you will surely admit it was an extremely lucky accident. Sensations not to be described in words!

Lake Plastira

Want to see how the nature and the hands of a humble man have worked in a perfect unison to create an awe-inspiring view? If so, hit the artificial Thessaly Lake of Plastira. Immersed in oak and chestnut trees, it will soothe your senses with scenic views, rustling leaves and murmuring water. The resort offers endless action-packed opportunities for holidaymakers from rambling and horse riding to water sports including canoing or rafting. Add to it the countless surrounding villages - all abounding in folklore peculiarities - and you've got a must-visit destinations that has brought prestige not only to Karditsa region but to all of Greece as well. Truly enchanting!

Benaki Museum

It may seem a waste of precious time to trudge across people-packed museums in a country that may well be regarded an outdoor museum itself, but in this case not a single minute is lost. Though it is the National Archaeological Museum (also in Athens) that remains in the spotlight, Benaki seems to give a holistic portrayal of the country as well as its cultural and artistic transformation from what it was in the Antiquity to what it is contemporarily. Several floors will take you on a journey through various periods of Greek history, introduce you to the heroes of the Greek Revolution and let you witness the birth of the modern state of Hellas. Not only for history buffs!
