Greece in A Week

When we think of Greece, we often think of a picturesque landscape with unique architecture set on beautiful coastlines. The Greece 2country offers a plethora of things for visitors to do. Here’s our guide to seeing Greece in a week!

The best times to visit Greece are April to October but keep in mind that there are a large amount of crowds/tourists in July and
August so avoid those times if you’d like. In this blog post, we’ll list the places to see but we suggest that you customize your itinerary to meet your needs for the trip.

Santorini is an iconic Greek tourist destination. In fact, the majority of pictures you see of Greece are probably taken in Santorini. The town is set on a cliff overlooking the sea and features white buildings overlooking a stunning view. Here, you can walk through shops, sunbathe by the pool at your hotel or at the beach, enjoy a boat ride or a breathtaking sunset view, and so much more.  Next up, Athens is the capitol and home to the historic Parthenon. Here, history fans will enjoy the sights and can also visit in two museums in addition to the Parthenon.

Greece 3Crete, which is Greece’s largest island, houses the Palace of Knossos, which was built around 2000 BC. While here, check out the Archaeological Museum of Iraklion and the Dhiktaion Cave (the birthplace of Zeus, according to Greek mythology). While in Crete, consider extending your trip to the charming towns of Chania or Phaestos. Next up, visit Delphi which is home to Apollo. Here, visit the Sanctuary of Apollo and the Delphi Museum. Make a stop in Thessaloniki if you are looking for a thriving nightlife scene, shopping, and art galleries. If you have time in your itinerary, we’d suggest the Monasteries that are built into cliffs in Meteora. Finally, Olympia, which is the birthplace of the Olympic games, is considered one of the most beautiful sites on the Peloponnese peninsula. The site features remnants of the stadium and ancient monuments.

Greece offers many magnificent sites. Whether it is taking in beautiful views or exploring historic sites, we hope that your trip to Greece is an exciting one!
