Greece

Why visit Greece?

greece map_outline

Greece is a country in Southern Europe, with extensive coastlines and islands in the Aegean, Ionian, and Mediterranean Seas. We don’t need to mention I’m sure, that its history is almost as old as history itself (well, almost…) and its ancient culture has had a significant influence on the arts, language, philosophy, politics, and sports of modern society… History and culture apart, it’s a lovely place to visit, with a mountainous mainland and idyllic island beaches.

Greece is amazing because you can see rugged mountains, olive groves, tranquil beaches, and rolling hills of white houses all in the same landscape.

Greece is the home to many intellectuals, from Alexander The Great to Aristotle The Philosopher and much more who have left a remarkable mark in the country. Greece is also the birthplace of Olympics , which had started in the year 776 BC as a religious festival in honour of Zeus.

The Greek spirit or kefi (KEH-fee) is found in hearty food, soulful music, and the love of lively conversation.  Greeks pride themselves on FILOTIMO a concept to connote friendliness & hospitality.
