Greek antiquity and its sights
Of course, you cannot go to Greece without admiring at least some of the antiquities. In Athens, the Acropolis is of course the highlight, the beautifully situated table mountain that towers above the city.
You will find the most famous Greek monuments, including of course the Parthenon. But you also want to visit the Propylées, the Temple of Nikè and the Erechtheion. Also visit the restored Acropolis Museum.
Rhodes is the capital of the island of the same name. The entire city centre of this city is on the UNESCO World Heritage List. Here you will find in the old town several remains of the medieval buildings from the Gothic period.
You can also enjoy a delicious meal here, or an afternoon of shopping.
On the mainland you may also go from your holiday home in Greece to Delphi. At this archaeological site you will find a wealth of temples and theatres. It is especially famous for the Oracle of Delphi and the great amphitheatre.
From your villa or apartment in Greece a visit to Olympia is also highly recommended. This is the place where the Olympic Games originated. The Olympic torch is still lit here every Olympic Games before it goes all over the world to where the Olympic Games is taking place.
