Those who live or have visited Greece numerous times will tell you that it’s practically impossible to enumerate all the locations that you’re supposed to see in this lovely Mediterranean country.

We share their opinion, however, it would be a shame not to mention some of the most wonderful attractions that this country has to offer. It’s widely known for its snow-capped mountains, turquoise water, ancient ruins, and heavenly beaches.

Therefore, it’s safe to say that Greece can satisfy even the pickiest travellers. If you’ve never been to this country, or you have but love to uncover some other interesting spots, then take a look at our suggestions below.

Places That Every Lover Of Greece Must Visit 

Acropolis As A Must!

We can freely define the Acropolis as the jewel of Greece’s capital city, Athens. Namely, it is also one of the most popular landmarks in the universe. Each year, millions and millions of tourists come here because they want to be blown away by the omnipotent temple of the goddess Athena.

It’s worth mentioning that if you decide to visit it, then you will have to arm yourself with patience because you will most likely wait for a couple of hours to enter the site. It would be advisable to get your tickets for the Acropolis as soon as you can if you want to avoid the crowd. But when is the best time to go there?

We have some bad news for people who are not early birds due to the fact that the best time to visit this attraction is early in the morning, somewhere around 8 am. Why then? Well, that’s because around 9 am it is highly likely you will run into visitors from the cruises (thousands of them).

Moving On To Splendid Santorini

Even if you’ve never been there, the chances are you have probably heard of it since it is one of the most famous locations in Greece. On the other hand, people who have been out there would define this island as the diamond of the Aegean. People from all around the world go to Santorini knowing that there’s no place like this on the planet. If you love to take pictures, then you’ll be glad to hear that it is one of the most scenic islands in the world.

It’s for sure very picturesque. Besides sensational sandy beaches and turquoise water, this place consists of lovely villages and some of the best Greek restaurants where you will get the chance to get a taste of traditional Greek food.  The only thing that you may not like about it, is the fact that each summer (and even longer) it is loaded with tourists, hence if you do not like crowded places, then maybe you should consider another destination.

Thessaloniki

The second-largest city in this country, as well as the capital city of the Macedonian region of Northern Greece, Thessaloniki is a vivacious city, that’s loaded with interesting festivals, lively nightlife, and social events.

That’s precisely one of the reasons why many would define it as the cultural capital of this South-eastern country. What’s spectacular about this city is the fact that it represents a perfect mixture of both old and new attractions, starting from the White Tower, Byzantine walls, and Turkish baths, to dynamic food markets, art galleries, and museums. 

When it comes to nightlife, it’s certainly one of the best ones in Europe because it provides tourists with vibrant nightclubs, bars, and other entertainment venues. It’s safe to say that this city has everything you need to have the time of your life. 

Lavish Mykonos

A lot of people consider Mykonos to be one of the most glamorous attractions in Greece. Just like Thessaloniki, this island has spectacular nightlife but it also boasts some of the most prestigious boutique hotels, fancy seafood restaurants, and entertaining live music.

Besides these things, out there you must also see Paraportiani (which represents a wonderful church in Mykonos Town), as well as its heavenly sandy beaches that you can easily reach by either taxi-boat or bus from Mykonos Town.

If you’re still not convinced that this island is worth seeing then maybe the fact that celebrities (such as Sharon Stone, Paris Hilton, Mel Gibson, etc.) adore it might just convince you otherwise. Additionally, it has an airport that is connected by a catamaran and ferry to Rafina, Piraeus, and Athens port.

As stated in the beginning, it was very hard to name just a couple of Greek attractions, however, we somehow managed to list the ones that we think are most appealing. Let us know what you think!
