What to Do During Your Greece Vacation



There are a lot of things to do when you decide to go on a Greek vacation. To give you an idea, here are a few things you should not miss.

If you happen to be in the country during the months of June to September, check out the Hellenic Festival. Visitors and locals alike will be able to enjoy the live performances held at the second century AD Odeion of Herodes in Athens or at the fourth century BC amphitheatre in Epidaurus.

When you need to relax and unwind, there are a number of white sanded beaches to visit. These include the Lalaria on Skiathos. Plaka, Agios Georgios and Mikri Vigla on Naxos, Vassiliki on Lefkada, Kefalos on Kos, Kokkari on Samos, Ialisos on Rhodes and Chrisi Akti (Golden Beach) on Paros.

From there, you can rent a boat and go island hopping by going with a tour group or hiring an independent company. Other water activities you can do include canoeing, kayaking, rafting and windsurfing. If you donít know how, you can always ask someone there to teach you.

If you want to go underwater, you can rent some dive gear on the Attica coast, Corfu, Kalamata, Kalymnos, Mykonos, Paros, Preveza, Rhodes, Skiathos and Zakynthos.

One place you should not miss is Mount Olympus which many believed was once the home of the Gods. Another place you can visit is Mount Pasnassos near Delphi. If you still want to do some walking, try the Samaria Gorge on Crete, or the Vikos Gorge in Epirus.

But before you go there, visit something closer like the Parthenon and the Acropolis. Although these are nothing but a bunch of ruins, centuries ago the Parthenon was believed to be the home of the Greek god Athena while the Acropolis is simply a hill overlooking the city.

If you are into spelunking, Greece has over 6,000 caves and a majority of these are found in the island of Crete. While here, you can visit one of two show caves and see these places that are filled with stalagmites and stalactites.

Believe it or not, Greece has its share of ski resorts. You can find these at the Parnassos Ski Centre on Mount Parnassos, Helmos on the Peleponnese, or Vermion in Macedonia.

Greece has 11 wetlands where more than 190 species of birds live that include eagles, herons, pelicans and storks. Two of the best are Nestos Delta in Thrace and the Prespa Lakes in Macedonia.

After a long day of hiking and engaging in water activities, you can relax and enjoy one of the many springs. You can also unwind in the various spas and hydrotherapy centers that will surely satisfy your desires.

To end the evening, have a sip of wine from one of the vineyards. If you like it, you can buy a bottle and bring it home. You just have to make a reservation one day in advance.

Greece is one of the oldest civilizations in the world and you can visit this place any time of the year. With so many activities and places to see, you will surely want to go back here and see the other attractions which you were not able to go to during your previous visit.

There are affordable Greece vacation packages for just about anyone so before you go there, make sure you book your flight and your hotel with the help of your travel agent.
