Greece Travel Fast Facts

Capital : Athens
Time Zone : GMT/UTC +1
Language(s) : Greek
Currency : Euro € info

Athens can fill coffee table books with photos and information on top tourist attractions such as the Acropolis and the Parthenon,

Although Greek art and artifacts continue to remain a big draw, the island nation's Mediterranean climate -- along with its food, legendary Greek beaches, culture and nightlife -- make Greece a top destination for more reasons than merely being the traditional "cradle of civilization."

But once you've seen Athens your exploration of Greece is far from over!

Other top Greece tourist attractions beckon at places like Santorini (part of the Cyclades group of islands south of Athens) featuring a colorful mix of whitewashed houses, its own active volcano, glorious sunsets, and beaches that come in shades of black, white, and red!

Also part of the Cyclades chain is probably the most popular tourist destinations among native Greeks - the stunningly beautiful island of Mykonos offering up glamour and excitement at its white sand beaches by day and cosmopolitan bars and a swinging club scene by night.

The lush Ionian Islands (aka, "The Seven Islands" with Corfu being the most famous) also beckon with their mountainside monasteries, vineyards and olive groves.
