There’s much more to Greece than you might imagine, as our Greece specialist Helen Nelson explains…

Enjoy relaxed island hopping with miles of dazzling coastline. Journeys through ancient history and mythology. Spectacular mountains and white sand beaches. Here you will discover the real Greece for all tastes and seasons. There are wonderful destinations to explore with us – the birthplace of Aristotle, Olympiada, lush green Pelion peninsula, and the relaxed artist’s village of Paleohόra, on Crete.

Venture to lesser-known yet enchanting areas for an authentic taste of Greek life. We will show you the best and most unique aspects of this magical land, its delicious gastronomy, wines and beautiful islands.

Greece boasts a magical landscape with spectacular gorges, ridges, beaches and picturesque villages. Join us on holidays to islands such as Nisyros, where the volcanic soil is so fertile that vines and figs, together with almond trees and wild flowers, grow in abundance. Or take a journey into Epirus in the Pindhos Mountains  to discover stunning scenery, traditional architecture, delightful hotels and fabulous walking country.

And what better way to end an enjoyable and rewarding day than a delicious dinner in a local taverna, giving you the opportunity to sample delicacies of the region. A country of contrasts, different tastes and flavours – there is something for everyone all year round. Whatever you seek from Greece, you’ll leave with the best the country has to offer.

Julia Bradbury, our roving ambassador, loves our holiday ‘A Classic Greek Journey’. Prices from £1,235pp. “Greece will always have a special place in my heart because of my family connections. Of course, you must explore the country’s archaeology, but the people and food are the true highlights.”
