It is a country full of monuments, beautiful locations, welcoming weather with hospitable people. She is well renown for her mediterranean cuisine, the pristine beaches, the amazing diversity of the landscape and a vibrant culture.

From beautiful islands to award-winning beaches, great forests, beautiful mountains, rolling hills, rocky terrains and spectacular cities and castles, Greece has it all and more. It is country that combines the old with the new, the traditional with the modern.

Get Mesmerized with Greece’s Rich Culture and Hospitality

Greece instantly conjures up images of an ancient mythical land. Think of Delphi in the Peloponnese, the impressive Acropolis in Athens, the legendary temples of Zeus and Hera, the medieval town of Mystras, the birthplace of Olympic Games-Olympia and the peerless geological rocks of Meteora.

Hospitality remains as deep-rooted as democracy over here. One of the names of god Zeus was Zeus Xenios, which means showing hospitality to travelers.
