Greece is o­ne of the top twenty travel destinations in the world and has a history second to none. It is divided into five regions: Attica, Crete, Central and Northern Greece, The Peloponnese and the Greek Islands and each region has its own special magic and mystery.

Athens, the capital, is situated in Attica, and no other place in the world has quite as many historical and archeological treasures as this city. Attractions range from the Acropolis - a UNESCO World Heritage Site - to the Temple of Olympian Zeus and from the New Acropolis Museum to the Cycladic Art Museum, and no o­ne will ever get their fill of Athens.

Crete is the largest of the Greek Isles, and everyone who has ever heard of Theseus and the Minotaur will want to visit this ancient island. Things to do o­n Crete include exploring the Minoan ruins in Knossos, walking the stunning Gorge of Samaria and visiting Heraklion's Archaeological Museum. Central and Northern Greece is the land that fathered Alexander the Great and Phillip II, and those interested in ancient Greek history must make the pilgrimage to Macedonia.

The Peloponnese lies in southern Greece, close to the Gulf of Corinth, and here tours of the ancient sites of Sparta, Corinth, Mycenae and Olympia - where the original Olympic Games were held - must be o­n top of the to-do list. The attractions offered by the Greek Islands are many and varied and visitors to Greece have a choice between lazing o­n the sun-drenched beaches of Mykonos and Corfu, discovering medieval strongholds o­n Rhodes and Serifos and dancing the night away o­n Ios and Skiathos.

Greece truly has something for everyone.
