Discover Greece

Greece (Português | Français) is one of the most important tourist destinations in Europe. These are attractions of the highest historical, artistic and cultural, not to mention the unique beauty of the numerous crystalline beaches scattered over paradisiacal islands that are found in the four corners of the Mediterranean Sea.

We owe a lot to Greece and Italy, Cradles of Western Civilization, for their philosophers, thinkers and their values. A visit to Europe and another to Asia, is at a crossroads between East and West. This fact to Athens is like a trip in time, despite the modernity of the receptive structure of the city.

Acropolis of Athens

The greatest symbol of the glory and power of yore, the Acropolis of Athens is a testament to the resistance of the foundations of civilization against attacks by barbaric and often merciless opponents.

Between seas and mountains

From the northern mountains to the wide Mediterranean Sea dotted with islands (about 1400, 255 of which are inhabited), the relatively narrow strip of land makes up the Thrace, which advances to the northeast, where it finds Turkey, the territory of Greece extends into the Mediterranean.

Regions of Greece

The country's territory is divided into 9 regions, namely: Macedonia, Central Greece, Peloponnese, Thessaly, Epirus, Aegean Islands, which include the Dodecanese and the Cyclades, Thrace, Crete and Ionic Islands.
