1. Explore an archaeological site

Greece is famous for its history that has given to humanity great monuments that are definitely worth a visit. Visiting an ancient temple, admiring a statue, which dates back to 2000 B.C. or walking around an area, from which democracy and many other values of the modern world began, is something that every thinking man should experience.

2. Visit an unspoiled island or village

Although Greece is a highly touristic country, it has to offer some places that remain untouched from the crowds. Islands, like Anafi, Fourni Ikarias, Tilos, Lipsi or Chalki, and mountainous villages, like Sfakia Chania, Aspraggeloi Zagorochoria or Portaria Pilion, can show you the authentic Greek hospitality combined with the true natural beauty.

3. Swim in the deep blue sea

The beaches of Greece are unique, but the most amazing thing is that you can find crystal, turquoise waters even in Athens. Wherever you want to spend your vacations, there is always a beautiful beach, on which you can lie, enjoy the warm sun and feel that you can swim in astonishingly clear waters.

4. Travel from one island to another

Greece is the ultimate destination for island-hopping because it has many areas with small islands in a close distance to each other. Eat your breakfast on Naxos, swim in the sea of Paros and drink your cocktail on Mykonos. It is easy, affordable and definitely not time-consuming! Read here everything you need to know about the ferries in Greece for the ultimate Greek island hopping.

5. Watch the sunset from a Cycladic Town

There is nothing more romantic than catching the sun sinking into the sea with your other half while its pink reflection makes the whitewashed houses of the town on an island of Cyclades a breathtaking scenery. Santorini is of course the most famous spot, but other islands, like Folegandros or Tinos, are impressive too.

6. Ski while enjoying the sea view

Greece is a mountainous country with high altitude and great ski slopes. You will find amazing the fact that you can ski on a mountain, from which you can see the sea mirroring the golden sun. And after skiing you can eat fish plates in a seaside beach tavern. Can you think of a better scenario for your weekend? You can make it true in ski resorts like Parnassos and Kalavrita.
