Whether you’re looking to discover the past and soak up some of the mysticism and mythology that seeps into modern Grecian culture, or simply want to rub shoulders with the locals and relax; Greece has a veritable treasure trove of gifts to uncover. In Cape Sounion you can unearth the ancient Temple of Poseidon, the Greek God of water; built in 444BC and jutting out dramatically from the unravaged cliff face; it resembles something from the books on Mythology you had growing up. For even more links to the history of the Ancient Greeks, how about taking a stroll over to the impressive Parthenon or the imposing Acropolis; both master strokes in ancient design and architecture and among the most culturally significant sites in the Western World. With an air of mystery and incredibly preserved (partly due to Greece’s ware climate), these great wonders of a time long past will take your breath away. Book your getaway for 2021 and get set to discover the best of Greece.

Your guide to Greece holidays
Crowds of holidaymakers visit Greece each year for a multitude of different reasons; the Greek way of life has something for everyone. With beautiful islands such as Corfu, Rhodes and Crete dotted around the peninsula, you’ll never be stuck for gorgeous scenery, golden beaches and top class hotels, no matter which one you decide to escape to. Elsewhere, party destinations like Kos and Zante are sure-fire favourites with the clubbing crowd. Jet off to the sun-drenched hideaway of Santorini, with a group of friends or your other half and you’re soon to be wooed by its rustic charms and relaxed pace. Meander through its cobbled streets and rolling hills, while gazing at the white-washed edifices that adorn the island and drinking in some local history. For those with sun, sea and sand on the brain; look no further than Skopelos which takes Greece’s top billing for beach offerings. Situated on a gorgeous slice of coast, with breathtaking vistas abound, this beachside retreat is just waiting to be discovered.
If we’re talking about top-class beach holiday destinations; Greece has a legitimate claim to the throne. Maybe it’s because they’ve had thousands of years to perfect their beach-centric lifestyle, or maybe it’s the abundance of stunning islands found here; but there’s simply nothing like lapping up the Grecian way of life. You can wake up late, take a dip in the sea then later indulge in some incredible white wine and succulent seafood, before dancing the night away... before doing it all again tomorrow! You’ll return home feeling refreshed and reenergized, with a healthy tan to boot. The Cycladic Islands, located southeast of mainland Greece, are home to some of the most popular resorts in the whole country and sure to suit your needs. If it’s a classic Greek beach hideout you’re after, islands such as Mykonos, Milos, Paros, Antiparos, and Serifos have been tempting holidaymakers for years.
