More About Greece

Greece is a popular tourist destination that boasts beautiful beaches, picturesque traditional villages, stunning landscapes and numerous sites of historical and archaeological interest.

Visit the Acropolis of Athens, the Minoan Palace of Knossos in Crete or the ancient monasteries of Meteora. Experience true cosmopolitan life in Athens or Thessaloniki, or explore the forests and coastal walks of one of the many Greek islands.

There are more beautiful and historic sites in Greece than it is possible to list. Special mention should of course be given to the Parthenon, the largest temple in Athens which is known the world over for its columns. Entry to here, and many other historic sites in Greece, is free to students of EU universities.


Greece Travel Guide

The country of Greece has captured the imagination for at least 2000 years. It is famous for its culture of classical antiquity as well as a delicious selection of food and a bountiful diversity of landscapes. In many ways, ancient Greece represented the birth of Western civilisation as we know it, leaving behind a legacy of democracy, language, philosophy, science and culture. Modern day Greece is just as vibrant.


Travel in Greece

You can travel in Greece either by car or public transport. Whilst the car offers a level of flexibility not found in public transport, for example when travelling to remote destinations, you might be deterred by the high accident rate and the crazy nature of Greek driving in the cities.

The road network in Greece is well developed and a great way to see the country. This quality does often result in toll roads, so it is always a good idea to carry some spare change with you.

Intercity buses are another popular method of travel. The buses are comfortable and government subsidised, resulting in a myriad of routes and cheap tickets. Rail travel is a bit more hit and miss. It is only in the last ten years or so that Greece has rediscovered the value of rail travel and so far there are few areas of the country that have benefitted from the heavy investment made.

Ferries are, of course, a good way to travel around the different islands of Greece and AFerry is a great place to buy these ferry tickets.

    Unhappy Traveller.
    • We were booked on the Venice to Patras service, this was cancelled at short notice. The choice was have your money back or continue driving another 215 miles to Ancona to get on board the ship to Patras. The same thing happened on the return journey, the ship even managed to be over two hours late docking in Patras. We will not be travelling on any Grimaldi line ships in the future if this is the way they treat their customers. This review is no reflection on AFerry who were very helpful.

    Very smooth crossing.....
    • I have to say I was pleasantly surprised that there was no 'swaying' movement from the boat. Bunks were surprisingly comfortable, all in all a good trip
