A place of myths, gods, ancient buildings and rich culture, a place in which some of the world’s most famous philosophers, mathematicians and poets were born and a place in which democracy, one of our top ideals today was born.

Yup, there are many ways to describe Greece as well as many places to visit in Greece, each of them special in its own way but just as beautiful.

I’ll give you 8 places to visit in Greece today and I try to do my best to describe how truly magical they are:

1. Santorini

Santorini

This gorgeous island is definitely one of my top must-see places but, since we’re saving for the wedding right now, I guess I’ll just have to be patient.

People of all ages come to Santorini to enjoy the world’s second most beautiful sunset as well as the very popular caldera view, typical island infrastructure, food and vines and, of course, the night life.

I’d love to see all of the above, plus enjoy a good sun-tan on those famous beaches with black and red sand so keep those fingers crossed for me and I’ll let you know how it turned out.

2. Athens

Athens

I’ve heard many Greeks referring to Athens as a pretty ugly city with a lot of beautiful corners and, yes, there is some truth in that.

Not every part of it is breathtaking but the ones that are, are indeed magical and, in the end of the day, that’s still the only thing that counts – doesn’t it?2

Visit the Acropolis as well as The New Acropolis Museum and then take a walk through Plaka and Monastiraki, some of the most colorful places I’ve seen in my life.

3. Crete

Crete

If you’re really into sightseeing, ancient civilizations and archeological findings then you simply must visit Crete!2

This large island, also known as centre of the Minoan civilization is very popular among tourists for its museums, as well as archeological sites such as Knossos, Phaistos and Gortys.

Breathtaking landscape, rich history and amazingly friendly people definitely make this island of the best places to visit in Greece so don’t be surprised if you start having thoughts about relocating permanently as you definitely wouldn’t be the first one!
