A visit to Greece offers travelers the opportunity to view stunning landscapes, trek to historic ruins, relax on warm beaches, and sample some exquisite Greek wine.
Greece has one of the richest cultural histories in the world and no visit to Greece is complete without exploring some of the more famous sites such as the Acropolis; located in Athens. Originally built to house a giant statue of Athena, the site is now one of the top tourist destinations. Another must-see site is the ruins at Delphi. Dating back to 1400 B.C, Delphi is best known as the sanctuary which housed the Oracle of Delphi, a priestess who was said to have delivered the word of Apollo.
While in Greece, be sure and experience one of the many street markets. One of the most popular is the central market in Athens. After an afternoon of shopping, relax by visiting one of the many museums.
If you are interested in immersing yourself in local flavor, consider trying some Greek wine. While retsina is the wine most people associate with Greece, the country also produces many different varieties. The Mediterranean climate allows for a long growing season and there are many grapes that are native to this area.
With fine wine, fun shopping and historic sites, your trip to Greece will be one to remember.
