Greece

Where fact is more incredible than myth

Blindingly white sugar-cube houses set against the deep, sparkling blue of the Mediterranean, one of the world's great cuisines and some of the most fun-loving people on Earth – it's no wonder Greece is a perennial favourite among travellers. And if you think the stories are mere hype or the postcards doctored, guess again. Greece is blessed with a landscape so starkly beautiful it almost hurts the eyes, and few countries celebrate life as zealously as its inhabitants. Though its location as a bridge between Europe and Asia led to millennia of invaders, the tradition of philoxenia, or hospitality to travelers, continues as strong today as it was in the time of Homer. In Greece, when the wine and ouzo flow, the dancing begins, and you are always invited.
