Greece travel guide

Beaches · Ruins · Nightlife
Few places manage to capture the world's imagination quite like Greece, a land of sun-kissed coastlines, tranquil whitewashed villages, lively seaside towns, and well-preserved ancient sites. One of the world's top tourist destinations since ancient times, the country draws nearly 20 million visitors each year. Athens, the birthplace of Western civilization, continues to attract the biggest crowds and serves as a base for exploring the country and its 227 inhabited islands. Away from its cities, Greece features a picturesque countryside of olive groves, vineyards, and tiny settlements nestled against rolling hills and rugged mountain ranges. Explore the old mainland on foot and discover the islands on a guided boat or ferry tour.

Naxos travel guide

4.2
Beaches · Ruins · Nightlife
Zeus, the master of all gods from Greek mythology, allegedly grew up in a cave on Naxos, a small but fertile island in the South Aegean Sea. Renowned for its unspoiled beaches and advantageous winds, the island offers excellent conditions for windsurfing and other watersports. Most of the island's western coastline boasts one sandy beach splashed by blue waters rich in marine life--a big draw for amateur scuba divers. The mountainous interior provides a look at the quieter side of the island, featuring a patchwork of lush valleys, quaint villages, and ancient sites. For a change of pace and a bit of modern dining and shopping, visit Hora, the island's biggest city.
