The attractions of Greece
The resort itself is situated next to the sea and in front of the mountains, but from here its easy enough to get about and visit the other attractions of Greece. Lets have a look at what makes Greece such a fascinating country to visit.
The Acropolis of Athens is a citadel from the Ancient Greek world that remains intact today and sits high up on a hill looking over the city. It was built in the 5th century BC and together with the Parthenon, is one of the most visited attractions in modern Greece. Built in 447 BC, the Parthenon is a former temple and so important to Greek history, it is considered to be a symbol of the country itself.
Ancient Olympia is the site where our beloved Olympic Games first took place. The ancient Greeks were the first to put together an athletic competition of this nature and the enduring excitement of competing and watching the competitors pitted against one another hasnt changed to this day. The Temple of Zeus is situated close to the Olympia site and is another great example of the architecture of the classical world.
Delphi is one of the most intriguing sites of Ancient Greece. This sacred space, located at the foot of the legendary Mount Parnassus, is where the oracle is said to have stayed. The Oracle of Delphi was respected for her knowledge and asked for advice regarding all important decisions.
Greece is made up of lots of little islands, each with its own unique character. Its perfectly feasible to take a boat ride to Rhodes, Kos or Santorini to explore each one.
The Greek family dinner table is dominated by fresh salads and olives, drizzled with olive oil and feta cheese in large chunks, as well as a delicious choice of breads and sauces to dip them into. If you like hummus and taramasalata, youre in the right place.
Meals are often served as mezze, which brings together a collection of small meals and dips. Popular main dishes include moussaka; a layered aubergine dish with a light creamy topping and spanokopita; a cheese and spinach pie covered in filo pastry.
If you have a sweet tooth youll love Baklava, which consists of nuts and honey wrapped in filo pastry. Wash it all down with a glass or two of Ouzo and youll find your holiday gets better and better.
