Information on Greece Travel
Greece is much more a spectacular destination with stunning sunsets and sandy beaches. When in Greece, you find yourself in a crossroad of colors and cultures. Visitors are able to feel the History and warmth of Europe’s southern extremity and discover the evolutionary course of thought, influence and experience. A country of a uniquely prosperous historical past, diversity and beauty.
Greece is a country of beautiful contradictions, a constant journey in time, from present to past and back again. Walk through the olive groves, through archaeological sites; move to clusters of islands, go through beaches and mountains and explore the breathtaking scenery.
The islands are the main characteristic of Greece’s morphology and an integral part of the country’s culture and tradition. Greek sovereign land includes 6,000 islands and islets scattered in the Aegean and Ionian Seas, of which only 227 islands are inhabited. This is a truly unique phenomenon for the European continent. The Greek Archipelago takes up 7,500 km of the country’s total 16,000 km coastline, offering a highly diversified landscape. Beaches stretching over many kilometers, sheltered bays and coves, sandy beaches with sand-dunes, pebble beaches, coastal caves with steep rocks and dark colored sand typical of volcanic soil and coastal wetlands.
