Experience the Timelessness of Greece
Many people feel as though the Greek Islands are the best way to experience the Mediterranean way of life. It gives many people a sense of how it would have been to explore the streets of Italy or southern France in the 1950’s. Greece offers a timelessness that can not be found easily throughout the rest of the world, despite it being a tourist destination it never fees as though it is overcrowded or congested with traffic.
Of course, you are going to find those very busy resort areas, however, it is just as easy to take a few steps down the road and find your own private paradise
Much of Greece feels as though it has yet to be discovered! You can walk around a village and still find people sitting around drinking coffee and playing card games in the early morning. However, after just a few short hours, those streets will be empty as everyone has gone back inside for an afternoon siesta.
Greece is truly the location for a perfect family holiday. If you are traveling with children, understand that they are going to be totally adored by the locals.
Savour the Delicious Food
And of course, we need to talk about the food. Greece offers some of the healthiest and most delicious foods you could hope to encounter anywhere in the world. On the Greek Islands, it is not uncommon to enjoy fresh fish and salads anytime of the day. You can spend hours eating plates of fresh calamari, octopus, red mullet, whitebait, and sardines.
