Greece's first-rate beaches, picturesque towns and villages, and balmy temperatures have been drawing in visitors for years. On the mainland, regions like Halkidiki offer soft sandy beaches and easy access to ancient sites steeped in legend, while scattered across the sea are thousands of sun-baked islands, each with their own distinct personality.
Wherever you choose to stay, you won't be short of some incredible sights. Wander through the narrow streets of Rhodes Town, visit the archaeological sites in the ancient Peloponnese, explore Crete's natural gorges or photograph the fiery sunsets on Santorini.
And when you've finished exploring, you've got some of the Med's best beaches to relax on - from Santorini's dramatic black-sand beaches and Corfu's pebbly coves, to the powdery white-sand beaches that fringe the coastline of Skiathos.
The pace of life here is generally set to slow - think long, al fresco lunches and even longer dinners, with fresh seafood and traditional Greek cuisine. Try classics like moussaka (aubergine, white sauce and minced meat), dolmades (stuffed vine leaves) or spanakopita (spinach pie), washed down with a glass of Greek wine.
