Greece is a country of myths and legends. If you still have doubts about visiting this country, now the review of interesting sights in Greece will dispel them.


There are places you can visit for free in the city, and the best guide will be a native. During the sightseeing tour you can see: The Acropolis, overlooked by the Philopappus Hill; the ancient Arches of Hadrian and the Temple of Zeus himself. A spectacular site is Syntagmatos Square, where Greek infantrymen march hourly. For a taste of local life, it is worth visiting the Monastiraki market and relaxing in the National Garden.


The capital of sweets and the city in the north, where all streets lead to the sea. In the morning, you should enjoy the confectionery in the cafe on Aristotle Square. Thessaloniki is considered the capital of culture. There are many monuments and festivals are often held here. You can watch the beautiful sunset from the bar on the water, sipping wine.


Picturesque paths among beautiful flowers through mountain gorges lead to the very top under the singing of rare birds at an altitude of 2917 meters. A truly divine place. Once here, you can understand why the gods loved Olympus so much.

Greek Switzerland

This kind of holiday, as in Switzerland, is possible on Lake Plastiras. Coniferous forests, mountain slopes and blue lake – this beauty of nature can be admired in the early morning in a stone house, and in the evening cozy by the fireplace.

The Palace of Knossos in Crete

The main attraction of Crete are the ruins of the palace of Knossos. According to legends, here once lived King Minos, who hid within the walls of the castle monster, known to the world as the Minotaur. The palace was a real labyrinth with intertwined corridors, intricate staircases and secret passages.

Ancient theater

No concert hall can compare in sound quality to a Greek theater, many of which are well-preserved from ancient times. The voice of Sting or the symphonies of the Tchaikovsky orchestra are worth hearing from the stage of the Odeon of Herod Atticus.

In Delphi, north of the temple of Apollo, there is a theater where you can still see a vivid performance.


In just 4 hours of hiking 9 kilometers from Fira to Ia, you can admire the volcano, the sea and the beautiful villages.

It is worth seeing the indescribably beautiful sunset at the ruins of the castle in Ia, at the lighthouse of Akrotiri or at the winery.

White houses with blue doors like a postcard are the distinctive architectural style of Santorini. You can meet in the morning on the black sand beaches, in the afternoon you can taste wines at the wineries or look into the crater of an ancient volcano, and you can end a busy day by watching a movie in the open air.

“Cosmic” Meteora

Monasteries of unbelievable construction are perched on enormous cliffs in Thessaly. The place looks as if the monasteries appeared from outer space. Twenty monasteries were once built on top of cliffs by hermit monks who climbed to the top with winches. Today only 6 monasteries remain.


The old ancient city. It is surrounded by fortress walls, and you can enter it through ancient gates. Behind which, from prying eyes, a true Middle Ages is hidden. Cobblestone streets, arches made of stone, bright fuchsias in pots. As you stroll through ancient Rhodes, there’s a chance to hit a dead end, visiting cafes and souvenir shops along the way.

The busiest place in town is Socrates Street. And parallel to it lies the street of the Knights. It leads tourists to the Palace of the Grand Masters. Once the palace belonged to the Order of the Knights. Carved furniture, beautiful tapestries, colored mosaics and ancient sculptures adorn the halls of the Palace.

Melissani Cave

According to legends, this cave was inhabited by nymphs. You can get inside by boat. Inside the cave, voices unite into a single whole and it seems that the nymphs still surround people. And when the sun is at zenith and its rays penetrate through the hole in the cave’s vault, the water begins to glow fantastically turquoise in color.

It is worth to visit Greece at least once and see the fantastic places with your own eyes and this amazing country will leave memories in the heart of every traveler.
