Who has not dreamt of standing at the Acropolis, gazing at the Parthenon, with all of Athens bustling below?
Greece is on everyone’s short list of must-see places — the mysterious temple of the oracle at Delphi, the beauties of the countryside near Corinth, the rugged terrain of the Peloponnese, the ancient waterfront tower of Thessaloniki.
And of course the delights of Athens, the ancient-modern capital where shiny bank buildings rise beside centuries-old tavernas, and museums boasting priceless examples of timeless art look out upon parks and gardens built by 19th-century kings.
Anyone who goes to Greece must go to sea, as the ancient Greeks did, spreading their language and culture throughout the region. A cruise among the Greek islands is a must: the brilliant, cloudless days, the salt air, the picturesque ports with their gleaming white sugar cube houses and lively waterfront cafes. On any island you’re liable to settle into a corner of paradise that’s difficult to tear yourself away from.
