For many, Greece is a top summer holiday destination. The climate is great, the food is fantastic and there are so many small islands where there is little else to do but relax. However, there are many options for a day trip.
Greece is so much more than a relaxing holiday destination. Santorini, Mykonos and many other islands are perfect for walking, for example. And there are many historic places from the ancient Greek history.
Of course, visiting the capital Athens is a popular activity, or visiting the archaeological site of Knossos on the isle of Crete. You can also find the famous Samariá Gorge National Park here. Or you can visit the ancient city of Rhodos or Corfu island.
Greece is absolutely bursting with ancient historically significant places. One of them is Delphi, with the temple of Apollo, the most famous oracle in all of ancient history. Other famous places are Mystras, Olympia, Delos, Pythagoreion and Heraion of Samos, Aigai (the modern Vergina) and Mycenae and Tiryns.
