Staggering Santorini is a volcanic island within the Cyclades group of the Greek islands. It is renowned for its stunning views, dramatic sunsets, and the Cycladic whitewashed cubic buildings. Fira and Ontario, the west coast drop-off towns, are regarded as romantic destinations, famous for weddings and honeymoons. 




Mykonos is distinguished as a cosmopolitan attraction amongst the Greek islands. Widely recognized as one of the best tourist attractions in Greece, Mykonos Town (Chora) is a stunning quaint Cycladic town with a maze of small whitewashed towns. Its sandy beaches and intense nightlife adds to its collection. 


In ancient times, Delphi was recognized as home to the sanctuary oracle of Apollo, being the most important site in ancient Greek religion. Delphi Theatre, the ancient theatre of Delphi, was built on a hill providing spectators a clear and vivid view of the entire sanctuary and the eye-catching landscape below. Built early in the 4th and with accommodation of 5,000 spectators, it is one of the top tourist attractions in Greece as of today.


Lindos, a medieval village on the island of Rhodes, made up of scribbled streets amidst whitewashed houses. Picturesque views of the surrounding harbors and coastline can be perceived from above the acropolis of Lindos. Lindos beach and Saint Paul's beach are also two amazing spots attracted to tourists.


Parthenon, a former temple on the Athenian Acropolis, Greece, is situated on top of the Acropolis and dedicated to the goddess Athena. The construction of the Parthenon began in 447 BC to replace an older temple that was destroyed by the Persians and was completed in 432 BC. In the Parthenon history, the Parthenon is known to serve as a temple, fortress, church, mosque, and powder magazine.  


Top 5 things not to do in Greece

1. August 15th

2. The Greek crisis

3. Wear inappropriate clothing

4. Disrupt the sewage system

5. Get heatstroke


August 15th

Try to avoid visiting Athens around August 15th, Greece’s biggest national holiday. All the locals would flee to the Greek islands, and most of the best bars and restaurants will be shut.

The Greek crisis

The Greek government debt crisis was stimulated by the commotion of the Great Regression. Try to avoid mentioning anything about the Greek crisis or quote “Greeks may deserve it…it will not have a good ending!”

Wear inappropriate clothing

Hot pants or crop tops are not allowed inside any churches or monasteries. It is considered disrespecting the divine culture and holy spirit of Greece.

Disrupt the sewage system

Respect the “please do not throw paper in the toilet” signs spread over the walls of every bathroom in the city. Athens being an ancient city, its sewage system is quite old.

Get heatstroke

Climbing the Acropolis in the middle of the day during the summer will result in heatstroke.
