Explore the ancient and the beautiful with a Greece holiday letting
Greece is a wonderfully diverse country boasting history, culture and stunning landscapes. A Greece holiday letting offers a great base for exploring. A stay in the capital Athens offers endless museums and monuments - head to Olympia and discover the site of the first Olympic games, or if you're seeking relaxation, head to Greece's many islands, such as Crete and Santorini, for the ultimate beach holiday.
Getting to your Greece holiday letting
Most visitors to Greece will arrive by plane at Athens' international airport. The airport is located in Spata, a suburb of Athens. Metro line 3 is the fastest and most cost-effective way of reaching the city centre. However, there are taxis located outside the arrival hall if you prefer to take a car. Many connecting flights leave from this airport to other parts of Greece, so keep an eye out for signs once you arrive.
If travelling on the mainland, using the state-run bus and train network is a great way to get around. Journeys to the islands are most frequently made by boat. Consider that in the winter months it's not unusual for ferry services to be delayed due to poor sailing conditions; this is rarely an issue in high season. There are three ports in Athens, all of which serve several islands, so checking the schedules that match your travel plans is advised.
Eating and drinking in Greece
Greece is a foodies paradise, and sampling the local cuisine should be an important part of your trip. The Greeks love skewered and spit-roasted meats, all served with salads, dips such as taramasalata, and baklava for desert. A good rule of thumb is to look for restaurants away from the main tourist strip, and try to spot the places which appear to be filled with locals. This will mean you'll get more authentic food, and the bill is likely to be a little more agreeable as well.
Street food is fairly common in Greece, and this is where you can really eat on a budget if you're looking to do so. It's also a great places for markets, especially in the cities, so stock up on all the local fare and prepare a Greek meal with your family and friends back at your Greek holiday letting .
Weather in Greece
There isn't a bad time to book a Greece holiday letting . Summer sees temperatures soar and there is very little in the way of rainfall. Winters are short, lasting from November to March and even though the weather is cooler, it can be perfect for exploring the museums and monuments of Athens. Low season also means that the city is much quieter and there is more availability for your ideal Greece holiday home.
What to see when you hire a Greece holiday letting
What to see and do largely depends on the location of your Greece holiday home. If staying in the capital Athens then it's likely that your trip will be focused on museums and historic landmarks. Top attractions in Athens include the Acropolis, which includes the famed Parthenon, the Ancient Agora and Syntagma Square.
Olympia in the Peloponnese is another must-see for those who take an interest in history. Olympia is the site of the first Olympic games, which was held in 776BC. The wider area is also worth exploring, and boasts delights such as the historic town of Sparta, Elea beach and Pylos, an old town with French-inspired architecture.
The largest of the Greek islands, Crete, is a wonderful location for your Greece holiday letting . Agios Pavlos is a stunning beach on the south coast, perfect for swimming and relaxing. If you're seeking some natural beauty then head to the Samaria Gorge, which offers stunning hikes and is open throughout the whole of summer. The capital of the island is Heraklion. This ancient city has much to offer in the way of attractions including the Palace of Knossos, the old Venetian Walls and the Historical Museum of Crete.
Santorini is another beautiful spot for your Greece holiday home. The volcanic island offers stunning sunset views from the cliff-side towns of Oia and Fira. Snorkelling and diving are popular activities to enjoy at your leisure from the comfort of your Greece holiday home in Santorini. If you plan on exploring the towns, then there's lots to see and do in Fira. The Prehistoric Museum, the old port, and the Santos winery are all good places to start your exploration of this Greek gem.
