Family

Greece has traditionally been, and still is, an ideal place to go on a family holiday. Here you will find everything that you and your family will need for that special time away together, including fantastic sandy beaches, quality hotels offering All Inclusive packages, many dedicated and quality kids clubs and facilities in the hotels, incredible historical sites that will invigorate your children’s minds about ancient history and the wondrous Greek mythology. Most importantly this is all in a country where your family can feel safe and secure.

History & Culture

Visit the most important landmark in Greece by taking a trip to visit the Acropolis in Athens. With simply breathtaking views we highly recommend that you ensure you are there for the glorious sunset. Whilst you are there why not also visit the fantastic new Acropolis Museum offering you an abundance of incredible facts and stories? Other archaeological musts include visiting the Palace of Knossos in Crete which was the home of King Minos. We recommended making use of the expert tour-guides who can add amazing detail to several thrilling legends such as the myth of the Labyrinth, the Minotaur and that of Daidalos and Ikaros.

Cuisine

Greek food shares much in common with cuisines from around the Mediterranean and also from the Middle East. Greece is blessed with some exceptional natural produce, including olives and olive oil, vegetables and herbs, cheeses and yoghurts, and the cuisine reflects this, relying on quality, natural products. Greek cuisine incorporates a wide variety of meats, fresh fish and vegetables so people with all types of eating requirements will
be satisfied. A must try is a typical Greek ‘Souvlaki’ and ‘Gyros’, grilled meat wrapped in pitta bread, ‘Stifado’ which is a rabbit stew, and freshly caught swordfish.

Drink

Being able to grow some of the world’s best grapes allows Greece to produce some exceptional wines and they have been doing so for thousands of years, although the rest of the world has not quite yet discovered the quality of Greek wines. Other traditional alcoholic beverages native to Greece are ‘Ouzo’, an aniseed flavour aperitif that is often added to water, ‘Retsina’, a white wine with a truly distinct taste and ‘Tsipouro’, a spirit made from grape skins that is not for the faint hearted
