Luxury weekends in Greece
Soak up the Greek sunshine on one of the world's longest coastlines
At 16,000 km, Greece has one of the world's longest coastlines, which means there are plenty of stunning beaches to enjoy on your weekend in Greece. Greek waters are known for being clean and crystal clear, perfect for a relaxing swim to cool off from a day in the heat.
There are so many incredible spots to choose from, Balos on Crete, Lindos on Rhodes and Manganari on Ios, that a holiday could easily be spent touring the islands and taking in all they have to offer. But in a weekend in Greece you want to see the best beach and that title goes to Elia on Mykonos - it is the most famous, and some would argue, the most beautiful.
Step back in time by visiting the historic Acropolis in Athens
If you want a real taste of the ancient Greek culture, a visit to the Acropolis is a must. This monument dates back to the fifth century BC and just walking around the ancient structure you can really get a sense of the power and sophistication of the ancient Greeks.
Perched on a hillside above the city, the Acropolis appears on postcards and has become an icon of the entire country. Greece's ancient history can also be seen in more than 100 archaeological sites dotted around the country. Dephi in central Greece and Epidaurus in Peloponnese are impressive sites and the island of Crete also has plenty of culture to immerse yourself in.
Tantalise your tastebuds with traditional Greek cuisine
The Greek meze is famous worldwide. This incredible array of dishes served hot or cold is a perfect way to get a taste of the culture of the country. From the well-known hummus dip made of garlic and chickpeas to the more traditional Gigantes Plaki made from butter beans and chopped tomatoes, there is plenty on offer. Greek delicacies include spicy slow cooked lamb, flavourful feta and fresh roast fish. Greek hospitality often means you are served a selection of these incredible dishes in one meal so you'll definitely get a taste of the country on your trip.
