Travel Guide to Greece

Greece is the cradle of Western civilisation, out of which sprang our collective imagination, language, theatre and architecture, as well as our way of reasoning, our relationship to the Cosmos and attachment to democracy. All of this has come down to us directly from ancient Greece! Even today, going to Greece is like going back to the source of what we are. Think of giants like Homer, Socrates or Alexander the Great, whose spirit still floats over the paths leading up to the Acropolis and the Temple of Apollo.
While this introduction may strike you as a bit grandiloquent, think about the fact that Greece had the remarkable privilege of possessing unparalleled natural beauty, and that its temples, ruins and palaces are full of scents. Greece is quintessentially Mediterranean, through the light in its skies and on its islands, its turquoise waters and mountains. Its little fishing ports are still lined with taverns where you can sit by the waterside and enjoy a dish of grilled grouper while listening to rebetiko music.
There is a the wealth of ancient sites to admire, from Corinth and Mount Olympus to Athens and Delphi, and some of the Mediterranean’s most beautiful islands to explore, including Corfu, Rhodes, Santorini and Crete. And if you’re put off by Athens, you can always escape to the sublime Byzantine monasteries overlooking Meteora above the Peneos Valley, a unique, magical, superhuman landscape like no other.
