Greece
Greece is a spectacularly beautiful country located on the southern portion of the Balkan Peninsula. It is bounded by the Mediterranean, Aegean, and Ionian Seas, and shares borders with Bulgaria, Macedonia, and Albania. Even though 80 percent of Greece’s topography is mountainous, it also boasts thousands of miles of coastline.

Indeed, it is the breathtaking mountains (not the least of which is Mount Olympus), the sparkling, turquoise water of the Mediterranean Sea, and the vast array of alluring islands that make this place so special. Besides major tourist destinations like Crete, Santorini, Corfu, and Mykonos, there are several thousand tiny islands that you are free to explore on during your travels to Greece. The appeal of the beaches, the mountains, and the sea is apparent upon first arriving. What guests may only come to truly appreciate after the fact is the truly immense amount of history and culture that is contained within this country.

The Greek Islands have long been an enchanted and alluring destination for people traveling the globe. The country’s inestimable contributions to virtually all categories of contemporary thought, including art, philosophy, politics, and economics, have made it a place of intrigue that transcends cultural preference. Of the approximately 16 million people that visit the Greek Islands every year, there are many millions from North America, while there are also visitors numbering in the millions that come from China, and from all other corners of the globe. There is so much to do and see. The food, wine, culture, beaches, and people all come together to make for an experience that you will not likely ever forget.
