This small nation comprised primarily of islands changed the history of the world. It’s not an exaggeration to say that we wouldn’t be where we are today without Greece.

Visitors to the Hellenic State often head immediately to one of their islands. And the islands are really impressive. Santorini is magical, particularly at night when the cruise ships head out of town. Hydra, without cars, offers a glimpse of the country as it was in the past. And Crete, the largest of the Greek islands, impresses visitors in hundreds of ways. So yes, the islands are amazing. But the Greek mainland also offers history, food, and wine.
