Places to Visit in Greece: 10 Must-See Greek Destinations

Places To Visit in Greece

In this week's video we’re going to share with you, our top 10 best places to visit in Greece.

If you’re looking for a romantic holiday, or just a fascinating archipelago to travel around, then look no further than Greece.

With that, let’s get started with this list of our top 10 best places to visit in Greece.

1. Santorini (0:36)

Santorini is definitely one of the most visited places in Greece thanks to the infamous whitewashed buildings of Eeya, which spill down the cliffs off the northwest side of the island.

If you’re planning a trip to Santorini, click the link to read our blog post all about the top 15 best things to do in Santorini.



2. Crete (1:29)

Crete is another one of Greece’s most popular islands, and for good reason.

At over 95 kilometres wide, Crete is the countries largest island, so it’s no surprise that there is a lot to do here.

If you’re heading to Greece, Crete should be on your itinerary for sure.

3. Corfu (2:26)

A Lush interior, pristine coastline, unique rock formations and a romantic capital city make this one of the most breathtaking islands in the Archipelago.

I recommend renting a boat while you’re in Corfu. It will cost you around €80 per day plus gas, but you don’t need a boat license and you can rip around to different hidden coves and bays to have a slice of paradise to yourself.

4. Zakynthos (3:16)

Number 4 on this list of the best places to visit in Greece is Zakynthos.

Many travellers from the UK and parts of Europe have already discovered this Ionian beauty, which lies west of mainland Greece, but for North Americans and travellers from other parts of the world, this could be the first time you’re hearing about it.

5. Athens (4:05)

What can I say about Athens? The oldest capital in the world never disappoints visitors.

6. Meteora (4:56)

The only other place on this list that is on Mainland Greece, Meteora is a must-see place for all visitors to Greece.

7. Chios (5:37)

With medieval villages, a unique culture, welcoming locals, exquisite beaches - including one of the best that we found in Greece - and delicious traditional food what’s not to love?!

8. Lesvos (6:23)

Lesvos is an Adventure lover's, history buff's and nature seeker's paradise.

From the mountainous pottery-filled village of Agiasos in the south and the ancient towns of Petra and Mithymna in the north to the Petrified Forest in the west and the neoclassical architecture of Mytilene in the east, there’s no shortage of places to visit in Lesvos.

-places to visit in greece
-why visit greece
-10 good reason for visiting greece
1. Greek Islands.

The beautiful and exotic Greek islands lure droves of tourists every year, making them one of the world’s top travel destinations. With more than 2,000 islands to choose from they may initially be bewildered by their number and variety. From gorgeous beaches, ancient ruins, colorful harbors and active volcanoes the Greek islands have it all.



2. Athens.

Inhabited for more than 3,000 years, Athens is widely known as the cradle of Western civilization and the birthplace of democracy. The city presents a confusing blend of historical and modern features.

3. Crete.

The largest of the Greek islands, Crete is a spacious land of pleasing contrasts where landscapes range from stunning coastline to rugged mountains and rolling countryside dotted with olive trees. Bustling metropolitan cities spread beyond to quiet villages centered around outdoor coffee shops.

4. Meteora.

The Greek word meteora means “suspended in the air,” and this phrase aptly describes the spectacular cliffs that rise more than 1,200 feet (366 meters) into the air overlooking the villages of Kalambaka and Kastraki in the north central mainland of Greece.
5. Delphi.

Second to the Acropolis in Athens, Delphi is Greece’s most popular archaeological site. Located about two and half hours from Athens along the slopes of the awe-inspiring Mount Parnassus, Delphi was once revered by the ancient Greeks as the center of the earth. Dedicated to the god, Apollo, Delphi was an important oracle.

6. Peloponnese.

Shaped much like a large leaf, Peloponnese was traditionally called Morea, which means mulberry leaf. Located in the southernmost region of both Europe and Greece, Peloponnese is a wide peninsula connected to the mainland by the Rio-Antirrio bridge.
7. Halkidiki.

Halkidiki is a trident-like peninsula near the city of Thessaloniki, sporting excellent beaches. The three separate peninsulas can be roughly summarized as follows: Kassandra has the nightlife, Sithonia has the beaches and Athos has the monks.
8. Zagori.

Zagori is a region of great natural beauty, with striking geology and two national parks, in northwestern Greece. It’s dense forests and rugged mountains are furrowed by powerful rivers and dotted with traditional villages, many featuring grand stone houses dating from the late eighteenth century.
9. Thessaloniki.

Thessaloniki is Greece’s second-largest city and the capital city of the Macedonian region of Northern Greece. Lively festivals, social events and a buzzing nightlife make this city the cultural capital of Greece.
10. Cape Sounion.

Situated at the southernmost tip of the Attica peninsula, Cape Sounion is best known as the site of the ruins of the ancient Greek temple of Poseidon, the god of the sea.

Crete Island - Best Places to Visit in Greece HD

The 3-minute slideshow, with background music, presents 20 of the best places in Crete, the largest Greek island in the Mediterranean Sea. Our selection consists of beautiful beaches, mountains, cities, landscapes, historical sites and other places of interest satisfying the needs of holidaymakers of all ages. Special thanks to Gergely Dombóvári, the composer and performer of the wonderful music.

Crete island was the centre of Europe's first advanced civilization, the Minoan (c. 2700–1420 BC). The archaeological site of Knossos Palace, famous for the legends such as Theseus and the Minotaur or Daedalus and Icarus, is just one of the miracles.

Besides the legendary historical places, Crete offers you a wide variety of beaches, such as the best-known turquoise lagoon of Elafonissi, or a wonderful 6-hour walk tour in the famous Samaria gorge.

Greece is known for its hospitality, Crete island is one of the most popular tourist destination in the country. Visitors can reach the island via international airport of Chania and Heraklion, or by boat to the main ports of Heraklion, Chania, Rethymno, Agios Nikolaos and Sitia. The ferry route takes 8-9 hours from Athens (Piraeus).
