    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.

    "Little piece of heaven"
    Experience of a lifetime! Andronis provides indescribably beautiful views of the caldera. Everything was perfect. The staff are available 24-7 to assist you with anything you may possibly need. If you ask for something, it comes right away. Need a reservation or a recommendation? They will take care of it immediately. The beds are comfortable and the rooms are so spacious with a great cave-like design. It's location in Oia is wonderful-close to everything but not in the over-crowded areas. We had the executive suite with plunge pool. You have a nice sized balcony to hang out on and a private little soaking pool to cool off in. We didn't even need to go down to the common area pool (other than a brief visit for a change of scenery). The restaurant, Lauda, provided delicious food, but the portions were somewhat small. Again-service was spectacular and the views cannot be beat! Be prepared to climb lots of stairs, but trust me it's worth every step! Thank you to everyone at Andronis. We will be back!

    "Lovely hotel however the staff are rude ! "
    Stayed for a week in June, the hotel is lovely with a grand lobby, we checked in and were told zero information about the hotel, the next morning we had no idea where breakfast was served, where to get the towels from and what times the all inclusive was from. I was shocked to find that you could not get a coffee or soft drink from the bar prior to 10am, fair enough on the alcohol side but soft drinks should be served. The buffet food was nice, variety or fresh meats and fish each night and the chinese night was very nice! The rooms are a little dated and dark but comfortable for a week as we only slept in the room, however our aircon did not go as cold as we would of liked. The staff were very rude especially Nico by the pool bar, we felt victimised as 4 25 year old girls in the hotel. The lobby staff were also very rude and unaccommodating. We tried to book for the a la carte and were told we were not able to dine here due to booking via Expedia and not being a package. I have contacted expedia since who said that "the hotel informed your reservation was all- Inclusive and they have given the full service to you. However, they did not hear any complaint from your side regarding this issue." WHICH IS A LIE. The lobby staff just kept saying you booked with expedia so no a la carte and then brushed us off to speak with somebody else. We cannot help but feel that if we were an older couple we would not of been treated this way. Disgusting.

    "Review April 2017"
    This is the fourth time we have stayed here over the last 8 years. As ever our stay was enjoyable and we will be going back again next year. The staff are without exception helpful and our experience of this hotel is faultless. We had paid for a room upgrade this time and will do so again next year We only book B&B preferring to eat out evenings locally, there are 6 restaurants within a 5 minute walk so we spend our day by the pool drinking cocktails and then eat out locally in the evenings. We took a taxi to Lindos one evening but to be honest there is no need to travel that far to eat out, what's on the doorstep is good, and cheaper.
