Holidays in Greece conjure up images of tavernas, ancient ruins and whitewashed Mediterranean villas; islands in warm, aquamarine seas, gorgeous beaches and olive groves. Boasting more coastline than any other country in Europe and more than 60 inhabited islands dotted around the mainland, Greece is without doubt a beach lover’s paradise. But it’s much more than that; Greece has a unique and fascinating past and ancient ruins can be found everywhere, from the tiniest village to the stunning capital city, and a trip to Athens is a must for anyone with an interest in ancient history.
