Greece is one of the most appealing destinations in Europe and one I have visited several times.
The cradle of Western civilisation has archaeological wonders like the Acropolis, idyllic islands, pristine beaches and rugged mountains. This is a vibrant culture where tradition and modernity coexist with some of the most hospitable people on the planet.
