If you are a first-time visitor to Greece you want to know what not to miss. There are many different places that get all of the attention as tourist destinations, but let’s take a look and see what places in Greece you must check out on your first visit to get the best variety of what this diverse country has to offer!
One island that is not only unique but also conveniently located close to Athens in Hydra. Hydra is an enchanting Greek island known for its restaurants lining the main port and the inevitable flashback to the turn of the century and beyond as there are no cars allowed on the island. The charm of the winding narrow pathways that lace the city are one way to experience Hydra.
Looking for something different you can try on your vacation? For those looking for an alternative view of the island, you can see the island on horseback! Check out Harriet’s Hydra Horses where tours are offered for 1-5 people, however, if pre-arranged 6-100 people are welcomed to a group tour.
When in Greece you must see the Acropolis and visit the Acropolis museum — it is an amazing and unforgettable experience. Also, there are many other things that you might want to check out while in Athens.
You can spend the day in roaming the ancient streets of Monastiraki or divert from the main tourist attractions and check out the town of Anafiotika nestled under the Acropolis that transports you to a Mediterranean island!
Or you can take a bus to visit the near by ruins of Sunio. Instead of going to the traditional beaches around Athens you can always take a taxi or bus to check out the unique cave lake of Lake of Vouliagmeni, located in Vouliagmeni.
Rhodes is a breathtaking island with stand-out fortifications of the town of Rhodes winding around the medieval town. It has quaint little squares and tavernas throughout its villages.
Why Rhodes? Yes, this island is a big tourist destination — but for all of the right reasons! You can spend your time…
