Exploring Tours in Greece

The landscape of Greece is filled with names that line the pages of history: Athens, Sparta, Corinth, Thebes, Delphi, Olympia, Knossos, Mycenae, Tiryns….the list goes on and on, and every single country road and lane seems to have at least one sign on it pointing the way to yet another monument, tomb, site or entire city from its long and glittering history.

The dramatic landscape, with its soaring mountains, glorious sandy beaches, deep gulfs, gnarled olive groves and bustling cities forms the perfect backdrop to this cultural extravaganza. There is always something to catch the eye while travelling here and often, there are so many things, that it is a country best visited in company, so that as little as possible escapes your attention, be it a ruined tower on the skyline, a beautiful grove of olives stretching across the landscape, or a soaring eagle hunting for prey.
