When you choose Greece, each season has different activities to offer. During the summer families have the opportunity to swim in clear, safe, turquoise water at one of the many Blue Flag beaches.
Many of these Greek beaches have been awarded the blue flag under the European Blue Flags Program, providing not only swimming, but also scuba diving, snorkelling, water skiing, sailing and windsurfing. Visit picturesque tavernas offering dishes made with pure Greek ingredients.
The islands of the Aegean and Ionian seas, Crete, Halkidiki are just some of the ideal family destinations. Along with the children, visit the sea museums and parks located on various islands of the country and enjoy adventurous water sports activities.
In the autumn, the stunning colours of the landscape and the relatively warm weather call for touring. This period is ideal for trips down the history route, walking through the impressive stone palaces of the Greek castle-cities around the country. The medieval atmosphere of Mystras and Monemvasia guarantee the uniqueness of the experience.
Greece has an impressive range of UNESCO World Heritage Sites including Acropolis archaeological site, Athens, Temple of Apollo Epicurius at Bassae, Archaeological site of Delphi, Sanctuary of Asklepios, Epidaurus, Mount Athos, Medieval city of Rhodes, Meteora, Paleochristian and Byzantine monuments of Thessaloniki.
