Greece Holiday

Learn about the roots of Western civilization and build a nice tan on a Mediterranean island in this ancient southeastern European nation.

Nowhere is classical civilization more alive than in Greece. Ancient temples stand as if they were recent installations. Enjoy thousands of miles of Mediterranean coastline and hundreds of beautiful islands in one of Europe’s most popular destinations.

Visit Athens to join the millions of tourists who come each year to see some of the most famous buildings of classical antiquity. The city’s most visible landmark is the Acropolis, a complex from around 500 B.C. that stands atop a rocky bluff within the city. Examine the Parthenon, a Greek temple lined on all four sides by marble pillars. Find additional archaeological sites throughout Greece, like the ruins of Delphi at Mount Parnassus, north of Athens.

Despite the mainland’s long and beautiful coastline, the best way to enjoy the sea in Greece is to visit some of the country’s islands. Make a stop at the gorgeous seaside village of Firá on the island of Santorini. With its blue domed roofs and whitewashed houses clinging to the edge of a steep seaside cliff, Firá is one of the most picturesque villages in the world. Explore the island farther to see that it is actually the cone of an active volcano.

With 1000-foot- (300-meter-) tall cliffs surrounding it, Santorini is not a beach site. Head to the resort island of Mykonos to find one of the best beaches in Greece.

Most people associate Greece with classical civilization and the sea. However, don’t miss one of the country’s best attractions: the Meteora Monasteries. Located in the central mountains of the Greek mainland, these monasteries were built at the top of tall rock pillars to protect them from invaders. When you visit, climb the stairs carved into the pillars and look out from the high vantage points of the rocky bluffs over the rocky lands.

Fly into Greece via the Athens International Airport. Take a boat or a plane from the mainland to any of the hundreds of surrounding islands.

Q: Should I book a car while on holiday in Greece?

A: Many travellers like to use riding-share services or public transportation when they're on holiday in Athens and Thessaloniki. It's a fantastic way of avoiding pesky parking fees and having to navigate through busy city traffic. But if you're planning to get out and about and discover the region of West Attica or elsewhere, you may want to consider booking a rental vehicle. Get your scenic road trip adventure off to a fantastic start by clicking on our guide to Cheap Car Hire in Greece.

Q: Which airports can I fly in to for a holiday to Greece?

A: When organising your adventure to Greece, start your travel itinerary near one of these major international airport terminals:

  • Athens (ATH-Eleftherios Venizelos): 5,135 international flights per month.
  • Thessaloniki (SKG-Macedonia): 1,368 international flights per month.
  • Heraklion (HER-Nikos Kazantzakis): 1,098 international flights per month.

Q: What are the most popular types of hotels for a holiday to Greece?

A: You're spoiled for choice when it comes to accommodation in Greece. The most popular style are hotels. But if that doesn't suit, you can also choose from apartments, villas, apart-hotels and much more.

Q: What does a Greece holiday booking with Expedia include?

A: Activities and experiences in the area? Check. Flights? Yes. A snazzy set of wheels? Of course. At the end of a long day of sightseeing, you'll be longing for a homely room where you can rest. We've got it all covered. Book what you need and get ready for an amazing Greece adventure.

Q: What is the best way to save money on my holiday to Greece?

A: Save money and hassle by bundling your bookings with us. From Flights to Experiences, Expedia has everything you need for a memorable Greece getaway. The more you take care of now, the more you stand to save. You'll also have less to be worried about when you finally get to your destination.

Q: What are the best things to do in Greece?

A: If you're stopping in Athens, there are tons of things to discover. Acropolis Museum, Parthenon and Ancient Agora of Athens are a few that should make their way onto your sightseeing list.

If you're heading to Thessaloniki, White Tower of Thessaloniki, Aristotelous Square and Arch of Galerius are worth your time.

And of course, Volos. Here, we'd recommend going to Volos Port, Archaeological Museum of Volos and Volos General Hospital.
