    Geography

    Greece is a peninsular country that juts out into the Ionian Sea and Mediterranean Sea. It’s located in Europe, east of Turkey and south of Albania, Macedonia, and Bulgaria. The country also includes over 1,000 islands, the largest of which are Crete and Cyprus. While Greece is known for its picturesque coastlines, much of the country is mountainous. The Pindus mountain range is the most prominent, while Mount Olympus is the highest point in Greece.

    Best and Worst Times to Visit

    Spring and autumn are the best times to visit Greece because the weather is pleasant, and the summer vacationers aren’t around. It’s warm enough to swim in the sea and the sun is out. Keep in mind though, Easter is one of the most popular holidays in the country, so hotel availability can be sparse at this time. Also, many shops open in June and close in October, so you could face fewer options during the off-season.

    If you don’t want to deal with swarms of vacationers and soaring temperatures around 100 degrees F, avoid visiting during August. The scorching summertime attracts visitors, which causes rates to skyrocket. Also, temperatures drop from November to February, and Greece becomes chillier and cloudier. This time span is considered one of the worst times to visit if you’ve got your heart set on beach weather.

    Lodging

    Greece is a hot spot for honeymoons, family trips, and solo getaways. Here at Expedia.com, we offer the best selection of affordable hotels in Greece that suit all your vacation preferences. Whether you’re traveling with your kids or celebrating your anniversary, there’s a place for you. Some of these hotels feature restaurants with authentic Greek cuisine and complimentary breakfasts. Many of them provide a bar, 24-hour front desk service, and Wi-Fi access in public areas, too.

    You’ll also find a selection of Greece resorts that include additional amenities than those offered at the hotels. Some feature full-service spas and outdoor pools, while others present poolside bars and nightclubs. When you browse our assortment, you’ll find cheap deals on resorts and hotels in Greece that fall within your travel budget.

    Things to Do

    If you’re venturing to Greece to bask on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea, head straight to Crete. As Greece’s largest island, Crete flaunts a picturesque coastline and secluded beaches. Balos Beach is a top pick and has been compared to the Caribbean for its white sand and clear water, while Vai is another favorite beach, surrounded by Europe’s largest palm tree forest. Island hop to other picture-perfect destinations, such as Mykonos and Santorini, which boast magnificent sea views, cobblestone streets, and the famous white-washed houses.

    There’s more to this Mediterranean paradise than the aqua water and white villas stacked along the coastline. The country is steeped in history, and Athens is one of the top places to see some of the most celebrated landmarks. Visit the Acropolis of Athens, which is an ancient citadel, and discover the Parthenon that dates back to 440 BC. While you’re in town, browse the exhibits at the National Archaeological Museum, explore Syntagma Square, and then rest up at one of the nearby hotels in Athens.

    Turn up the adventure during your Grecian getaway. Hike around the ancient sites in Delfi or explore the serenity of nature at the Aoos Gorge. Get some height with a rock climbing excursion at Mount Timfi, paraglide over Drama for a bird’s-eye view of the region, and whitewater raft in Tzoumerka. From sea kayaking around Kefalonia to mountain biking in Mount Olympus, you’ll see a different side of the Greek islands.

    Culture

    Greece has an extensive history, and much of its past is still celebrated and preserved today. The concept of theater was developed in Athens, while the Olympic games are traced back to Olympia. The Greek people are responsible for creating marble and bronze sculptures along with the style of Greek Romantic art.

    There are also a number of festivals that take place in Greece. Carnival is one of the most famous celebrations the country. During the three weeks leading up to Clean Monday, the streets become a colorful sea of carnivals and parades. Live music blares, while costumed performers dance along elaborate floats. Teams compete in treasure hunts, searching for clues throughout the city; children play games; and fireworks fly through the sky.

    After observing Carnival and Lent, the Greek people host Easter, which is one of their biggest holidays. They start the celebrations on Maundy Thursday by dying eggs red, and then decorating the Epitaph on Good Friday. Easter Sunday marks the end of their 40-day fast, prompting a massive lamb feast.

    Food

    Greek food follows the Mediterranean diet. Many of the dishes feature olive oil, fish, and vegetables, however, each region of Greece adds its own spin. While there are variations on many of these meals, some of the most popular fare includes dolmades, moussaka, and courgette balls. Olives and feta cheese often accompany the cuisine, while honey and baklava make for a sweet desert.

    Whether you’re craving some fresh Mediterranean cuisine or a peaceful getaway at the seaside, Greece is the answer to all your vacation desires. Sort through our selection of cheap deals on hotels and flights to Greece to get your island sojourn started today.

    "4 * hotel with 5+* service"
    Although The hotel is not near the centre (It's in a quiet semi residential area) it is though only circa 4-6 Euro cab fare to the main attractions (we paid 3.80 Euro from the hotel to the Acropolis - and even that was right to the top!) Staff and service excellent, I even got a few free drinks compliments of the management. Special thanks go to night manager James & even more to Yannis - who were absolutely brilliant. Would we go there again? Definitely yes!

    "Friendly hotel near the main attractions"
    The hotel is within easy walking distance of the Parthenon and other sites. The views from the excellent roof top restaurants are breath taking. Combined with the friendliness of the staff this made our stay a joy. There is traffic noise from street at the front of the building which some guests may find difficult as it continues through the night. But you have the view over the temple of Zeuss. After the first night we were not too disturbed on the 6th floor.

    "Fantastic hotel, staff, food, location, view!"
    We went for the last week of our 2 week honeymoon from 7th to 14th April. From the moment we arrived we were treated like royalty. Unfortunately the weather wasn't great for the first few days we were there which put a bit of a downer on things, but this is obviously not the hotels' fault. The staff made the holiday, we will actually miss some of them that made a lovely impression on us. The food was fantastic, we ate in the restaurant quite a few nights because the food was so good, and i guess we just liked being there at the hotel. Oh yes, and the view, the view is breathtaking! This really should have been mentioned at the start of this comment, anyway, our advice is book now to avoid disappointment. They even gave us 2 big jars of their homemade marmalade with the recipe to take back to the UK because I loved it at breakfast and I asked for a small sample to take back, their generosity was so lovely. All in all, this is a beautiful hotel with first class service and food in a great location. Thank you Santorini Princess for making us feel so welcome.

    "Peaceful hotel great for relaxing!"
    Hotel was absolutely beautiful! Very simple styling that was quite striking. We had a classic sea view room and it was very spacious for 2. I would definitley recommend going for the seaview and a high room number (400-520) as we were quite far from the bar and any noise coming from there so made our stay nice and peaceful. The hotel is quite secluded though there is an infrequent bus service to Mykonos town. This hotel would be great for people just wanting to relax and not do much. There are about 5 nearby restaurants, including the hotel one, and all are very very good.

    Small intimate hotel with great pool area and bar. Fantastic views over the new port. Good, quiet location just a short bus or sea bus ride away from the main town. Clean, well appointed rooms with balconies. Staff were always friendly and you can get something light to eat or drink. Good advice given about where to visit and public areas of the hotel were gorgeous and very comfortable. Would definitely return.
