Greece

Greece, located at the crossroads of Europe, Asia and Africa, is considered to be the cradle of Western civilization, the birthplace of democracy, Western philosophy, literature, theater, the Olympic games, and major political, scientific and mathematical principles.

Dating all the way back to the 8th century BC, the Greeks were organized into various independent city states. In the 4th century, Philip II of Macedon united most of ancient Greece. His son, Alexander the Great, rapidly expanded the Greek empire, conquering territories as far as the edge of India. The subsequent period called the Hellenistic period was the height of Greek culture and influence. In the 2nd century BC though, Greece was conquered by the Romans, and became an integral part of the Roman Empire, and later the Byzantine Empire. By the 15th century, it became a part of the Ottoman Empire, until it finally emerged as a nation state in 1830.

With its expansive history, Greece has some of the most famous ancient architectural and archaeological treasures in the world. It is also known for its stunning landscapes, countless breathtaking islands like Santorini and Mykonos, and vibrant cities like Athens and Thessaloniki with mouth watering cuisine and exciting nightlife.

From history, to culture, to active adventures, to romantic escapes, there is literally nothing you cannot experience in Greece.
