The best places to visit in Greece

Greece is known by everyone as being the place where you can go discover ancient civilisation. If you’re not a history buff then there’s no need to worry because there are plenty of other things that will tickle your fancy; quaint villages, sweeping sandy beaches, amazing food and a great friendly atmosphere. It’s only a short flight from the UK so you should take your holiday as soon as possible and fly out to Greece. Without doubt the place has the best food that I have ever tried, the Mediterranean food is so tasty that you won’t want to go back home and when you do you will find the food nowhere near as good! One thing I should mention is that for the health conscious amongst you please forget any idea of diet that you have, you have to eat as much as possible when you are n Greece. There is no way that you can fly all the way there and indulge in every bit of Greek cuisine that you lay your eyes on, if you though Greek food was good back home then wait until you try the real thing! So now you’re going to be eating lots it’s time to tell you about the best places to visit where you can stroll around and burn off those tasty meals. Here are my favourite places to visit on holidays to Greece.

Rhodes

This is an easy choice for me, it is one of the most popular places in the country. it is so popular because it is not only steeped in history but it also has some amazing beaches as well. What could be better than exploring historical sites in the morning when the temperature is cool and then lounging on the beach for the rest of the day? This is a must see place.

Mykonos

This place is great if you enjoy heading out for a party at night. It’s such a friendly city and is one of the best islands that Greece has to offer. The city is beautiful, it is filled with white washed buildings and sits on the Aegean Sea. This modern city city is fantastic for anyone that is looking for relaxation mixed with a great night life.

Meteora

If heights are not your thing then it’s probably best to mentally prepare yourself before heading here. The breath taking cliffs are stunning, and on top of them you will find a number of monasteries. I personally don’t like heights, but I am so glad I battle my fear and visited Meteora. If you want to take some of the best photos you will will ever take then you have to head to Meteora.

A week off from the grind

If you’re one of those people who works 9 to 5 everyday you’ll know that the routine can really start to wear you down – doing the same commute everyday and staring at the same computer screen can easily get tiring. Everyone needs a break every now and then to recharge the batteries and get away from it all.

It true that sometimes the stresses of work or family life mean the thought of going on holiday for even just a week feels like more hassle than it’s worth. If this is the case it’s probably a sign that you really do need a holiday! if you can make the effort of getting yourself to an airport with just a carry-on bag and your sunnies, the benefit you’ll feel when you touch down on the runway in another country – with some sunshine to greet you – will make it all worthwhile.

Nowadays, with so many websites dedicated to travel, it’s really easy to pick up a bargain trip at short notice. Whether you feel like a cheap holiday to Greece to spend your time lazing on the beach or by the pool, or if you feel like taking a break in one of Europe’s most iconic cities, drinking up some culture, the effects of getting away from it all will be just the same. With price less of an obstacle, there’s really no excuse to get that well-deserved break.

Of course, this kind of last minute deal is much easier to organise if you’re footloose and fancy-free, without having to think about your kids or your partner, fitting in around other people’s work schedules or school holidays, but if that’s your situation, don’t be put off, it’s still possible to be spontaneous if you really want to. You may have to wait for the next school holidays, but you can still get the bargains if you don’t mind leaving the arrangements to the last minute.

Just getting out of the daily routine can be so uplifting and you’ll often come back feeling like you’ve been away for much longer. You’ll go back to work with a new spring in your step for a few weeks at least! You never know, maybe you’ll enjoy it so much that you’ll realise 9 to 5 isn’t for you, and decide to make your travelling a little more permanent!
