Landscape
With more than 2,000 islands, each with its own identity and appeal, as well as cities bursting with history and UNESCO World Heritage sites alongside unspoiled, traditional villages, there is endless beauty to explore across Greece’s varied landscape.

Cuisine
Mouthwatering culinary specialties boast a diversity of styles, types and ingredients. But, the true beauty of Greek cuisine lies in four secrets: fresh ingredients, the perfect balance of seasoning and flavorings, the pure olive oil and simplicity. Voila! Among many tempting dishes, sample staples like moussaka, spanakopita and Greek salad.

Culture
Great beauty meets the history of remarkable civilizations in Greece; unrivaled are its cultural offerings. From museums and UNESCO World Heritage sites to religious influences, there’s so much culture to unearth here. Start at any one of a multitude of museums — like the Acropolis Museum, Byzantine Museum and more — before making your way to UNESCO World Heritage sites, including the City of Rhodes and Archaeological Site of Delphi. Art galleries also abound, with Alexandros Soutzos Museum and National Glyptotheque among the options.

Tradition
The Greek people are friendly and inviting, eager to share with travelers a taste of their traditions. Folk dance has always been popular, as has Greece’s oldest form of art, the theater. Traditional music is immensely important throughout the country, known as dimotika on the mainland and nisiotika on the islands. A number of Greece’s indelible traditions today boast UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity designations, like cultivating mastic and Tinian Marble Craftmanship.
