Here are some of the highlights that you should plan to visit:
Greece’s beaches are where the white sand meets crystal blue water. With breathtaking views in popular tourist locations like Mykonos, Santorini, and Crete, these beautiful waters can’t be missed. These beaches are often lined with colorful buildings and quaint seaside towns. A beach town is a great place to spend a relaxing vacation with your feet in the sand and a refreshing cocktail.
If you haven’t tasted traditional Greek cuisine, you are missing out! The three staples of Greek cuisine are wheat, olive oil, and wine. You will rarely find a meal without meats such as fish, lamb, goat, or poultry as well. Greece is also famous for its flavorful dipping sauces, including Tzatziki, hummus, garlic, and feta.
You cannot leave Greece without trying Baklava and Gyros, some of the most popular Greek dishes worldwide. Baklava is a traditional pastry with flakey dough layers, honey, and groundnuts. This irresistible treat will only leave you wanting more. Gyros are made with tasty lamb or beef stuffed into a soft pita and filled with Tzatziki, feta, tomato, and onion.
