The Mediterranean kitchen is based on the unrivalled raw materials of the region, and Greek chefs are adept at creating memorable meals that are innovative while remaining anchored by the country’s culinary traditions. Greece produces excellent wines, and it is worthwhile exploring the local grape varieties, many of them unique to Greece.
Cafes & Meeting Places
Whether you are after a quick espresso or a more relaxed frape (Greek iced coffee) with lots of conversation, there are countless places on offer. Cafés play an important part in Greek social and business life. You will see them everywhere and usually flled with people.
Amazing sunsets, striking interiors, romantic courtyards, and buzzing rooftops with spectacular views form the backdrop for a Greek evening out. The bar scene in Greece has exploded in the last decade and great attention is paid both to atmosphere and innovative cocktail menus. Connecting with people and enjoying a fabulous time together is supremely important to Greeks, and the nightlife reflects that.
A good hotel can be a home away from home and an oasis of comfort after a long day. The hotels in our list are all in the centre, except for the Four Seasons on the AthensRiviera, and the St. George Lycabettus, which sits in a quiet spot above the exclusive neighbourhood of Kolonaki. We picked these hotels for good location, exquisite service and full amenities.
Day & Weekend Trips
Pack the bags, turn off the phone, and out you go! Greece holds an enormous amount of worthwhile sights and experiences for such a small country. The relatively short distances mean that it is easy to explore the country, even if you have just a day or a weekend.
Archaeological Sites, Museums and Cultural Events
We offer here a small selection of the many cultural attractions in Athens, including must-sees like the Acropolis. But quite apart from major museums and archaeological sites, Athens also has a profusion of live music venues, performance spaces, galleries, and cultural institutes.
Reliable public transportation can help your vacation run smoothly and without any hassle. Luckily, Greek public transit is pretty convenient and cheap.
Navigating a foreign healthcare system can be daunting, but it doesn’t have to be in Greece. Greek doctors are excellent and many have studied abroad.
