Greece is one of our most trusty places to visit, somewhere we rely on for our sun and sea fix every summer – and so it’s just as well that there are many Greece holiday destinations to choose from.
Whether you want to visit one of the thousands of islands, from the Cyclades to the Sporades, tour the classical destinations on the mainland or admire the Acropolis in Athens, there’s a holiday destination in Greece for you.
Just like Italy's holiday destinations and the most beautiful Portuguese holiday destinations, the beauty spots in Greece are perfect for a spring, summer or autumn escape when you can make the most of the Mediterranean sunshine.
Mykonos and Santorini in the Cyclades get more tourist footfall than most of the rest of the country, but there are other islands worth a visit in this region of the Aegean, too.
Sifnos, for example – home to several hundred whitewashed churches, an exciting food scene and charming boutique hotels. Or magical Milos, with its rich mining history, incredible geology and hilltop towns, where the sunsets give even Santorini’s a run for their money.
Ancient Athens never gets old: the almighty Acropolis is one of the most majestic sites in the country.
Crete may be an island, but it’s a vast one – don’t miss the gorgeous capital Chania, with its Venetian harbour and restaurants along the water’s edge.
