Greece has been the country to head to for hedonistic delights, heady cultural destinations, and historical ruins for quite literally centuries, but it's also one of the most relaxed, laidback and tranquil places to visit in Europe. Whether you want to be touring ancient ruins, stopping by museums in between meze platters, or clubbing in Mykonos, Greece has it all. If you're after pampering and the feel of sand between your toes, however, you also can't do better than a beach holiday or island hopping trip to this magical country. With pretty harbor towns, cliff side villages, friendly tavernas and beachfront bars, Greece's islands are second to none when it comes to learning to live slowly and unwind in a picture perfect location. Secret coves, crystal clear waters, whitewashed walls and uninterrupted sunshine are all waiting in Greece.
