On vacation in Greece - Buy tours, air tickets, hotels online

Greece is one of the most beloved countries for vacationing in Europe. Many Russians feel more comfortable here than, for example, in Turkey or in Thailand. The tourist season in Greece lasts approximately from May to November. In fact, Greece comes to other seasons, but in these cases, for a beach holiday, but for visiting historical sights.

During the tourist season you can also find hot tours to the resorts of Greece. If you are tightly tied to the schedule of holidays, then you better buy a tour for the summer and autumn in winter (early booking tours).

Residents of the United States do not often come on vacation in Greece, but in vain. In Greece there are many interesting places and ancient monuments.

Athens is the capital of Greece. Athens is not the most popular destination for beach lovers. Tourists in Athens are more attracted by museums and attractions: the Dionysus Theater, the Parthenon, the Witless Temple of Nicky, the Lycabettus Hill, the Olympic Stadium, the Erechteon, the Odeon of Herodotus Atticus and the Acropolis.

At a distance of 15 - 20 kilometers from Athens there are excellent sandy beaches. So it's also good to spend summer vacation in this region.

Loutraki is one of the popular Greek resorts, which is located on the mainland (not on the islands). The resort town is located about 90 kilometers from Athens. You can either spend time on the beach or rent a car and go to Athens yourself.

Halkidiki is a peninsula in the northeast of Greece. Halkidiki is a popular European resort area. There are many large and small beaches (specify when choosing a place for holidays) and 20 monasteries in the rocks of the Athos peninsula. Thessaloniki is the second largest city in Greece. Most tourists traveling to Halkidiki arrive through the airport of Thessaloniki.
