Holidays and Vacations in Greece and the Greek Islands
Many travellers have already started planning their summer holidays in Greece for 2013. In Greece, you will find a huge selection of beautiful destinations that can make your holidays in Greece amongst the best you have ever had.
Athens, capital city of Greece, will always be a very popular holiday destination, after the worldwide exposure of the city during the 2004 Olympic and Paralympic Games. With Athens having had a huge facelift, it will once again inspire and amaze it's visitors. The infrastructure of the city has vastly improved, and arriving and traveling around Athens is now easier than ever before, with it's improved public transport, such as bus, trolley, Metro and the new Athens Tram.
As always, the Greek Islands will be the holiday destination of many, and with their unique charm and beauty, it is hard to argue with this choice. Islands such as Mykonos, Rhodes, Santorini and Corfu are the Greek Islands that everyone knows of, but with so many smaller undiscovered islands, one may decide to venture out, and be a little more adventurous when selecting the Greek Island they wish to visit.
The Peloponnese is always a popular choice with many. With it's stunning beaches, and interesting archaeological sites, such as Ancient Olympia and Epidaurus, one can easily combine education and entertainment into their holiday.
Central Greece is one of the upcoming Greek holiday destinations, and the number of visitors to this region has steadily increased over the past years. Free from the problems of mass-tourism, there are many regions in Central Greece where visitors can enjoy quiet, peaceful and unspoilt holidays. One such region is the Pelion Peninsula, located in Thessaly, which is becoming more and more popular, yet still retains it's traditions and simplistic charms, that it has always had.
Macedonia in Northern Greece also offers some delightful areas for holidays, such as Thessaloniki ( the second largest city in Greece ), Thrace and Macedonia. As well as being extremely beautiful and picturesque regions, they are also more than capable of satisfying the modern traveller and holiday maker.
