A favourite amongst historians and people looking for a cultural holiday, Greece is home to hundreds of fascinating archaeological sites and museums where you can relive its ancient past, from the Palaeolithic Era to the Roman Period.
When to go to Greece
Greece offers guaranteed sun in the high season. Temperatures soar to 30 degrees and higher in July and August, and you can make the most of the fabulous weather by enjoying up to 12 hours of sunshine a day.
If you are looking for a slightly cooler temperature then the autumn and spring months are a good time to go. Temperatures tend to be cooler and stay within the low to mid-twenties. This time of the year is ideal if you plan on seeing all the tourist attractions and exploring the historical sites.
There are so many jaw dropping sights throughout Greece. In Corfu, you can explore the stunning Palace of St. Michael and St George, as well as the fascinating ruins of the Temple of Artemis. This temple features stone carvings of mythological figures, including Medusa, Pegasus and Zeus.
A hidden cultural gem of the mainland is the beautiful region of Epirus. This area of Greece is perfect if you are looking for a holiday where you can experience traditional Greece to the full. The laid back way of life and welcoming locals combined with the picturesque scenery, charming villages and harbour towns, such as Sivota and Parga, are just a few of the many attractions to this area.
