A heady mix of mythical legend, magnificent feats of ancient architectural brilliance, sun-drenched beaches and aquamarine coastlines, Greece and its islands offer a wealth of possibilities to both the first-time visitor and seasoned island hopper. This fascinating country may currently be living through trying economic times, but the welcome will still be as warm and heartfelt and the experience just as magical, this is after all a country where visitors contribute an integral part to the livelihood of its people.
Imagine balmy summer evenings sitting on the terrace of a traditional Greek tavern, watching the sun set over glittering Aegean waters, plates of meze - plump olives, chunks of feta and stuffed vine leaves - accompanied by a glass of chilled retsina, perhaps moving on to a fiery ouzo as the night draws in. Mainland or island, this is Greece at its best.
