“My absolute favourite destination of all time is Greece, this place just exudes magic with its incredible ancient history and natural beauty. I love everything about Greece, from the cobble stone streets lined with vibrant bougainvillea trees, to the delicious cuisine and the surprisingly delicious wine. There is absolutely nothing like sipping on a Mythos Greek beer, while watching a magenta sunset over the endless ocean. Honestly Greece is a little taste of heaven on earth.”Caryn, Head of Product and Sales at Travelcheck
Aren’t we all dreaming of a holiday in Greece? Since we can’t travel there right now and most likely not even this winter (here) / summer (over there) we put together a list of things to do at home that will bring you that Greek-feeling just a tiny bit closer to our shores.
Of all Europe’s historical capitals, Athens is probably the one that has changed the most in recent years. But even though it has become a modern metropolis, it still retains a good deal of its old small town feel. Here antiquity meets the future, and the ancient monuments mix with a trendier Athens and it is precisely these great contrasts that make the city such a fascinating place to explore. The heart of its historical centre is the Plaka neighbourhood, with narrow streets mingling like a labyrinth where to discover ancient secrets.
