An extraordinarily beautiful place called … GREECE!

“If you dismantled Greece, in the end you will see to remain an olive tree, a vine and a boat. That’s all it takes to rebuild it.”
Odysseus Elytis, famous Greek Poet – 1979 Nobel Prize for literature.

Greece is located in South-Eastern Europe, on the Southern end of the Balkan Peninsula; it lies at the meeting point of three  continents  –  Europe,  Asia  and  Africa.  Greece  borders  to  the North  on  Bulgaria  and  the  Former  Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (F.Y.R.O.M.),  to  the  Northwest  on  Albania,  to  the  Northeast on Turkey; to the West it is washed by the Ionian Sea; to the South by the Mediterranean Sea and to the East by the Aegean Sea.  Greece  is  much  more  than  we  were  taught  at  school  and  than  we have  seen  in  the  photos  with  beautiful  sunsets  and  golden  sandy beaches.

In Greece, you are in a crossroad of colors and cultures; you feel the strength of History and the warmth of the southern extremity of Europe and  you  discover  the  evolutionary course of thought, influence and experience.  You are in a country with a uniquely affluent historical past, whose people, however, do not rest on their laurels and are not stuck in that past. You are in a country that, though statistically small, is huge in its diversity. You see landscapes that have given thousands of postcard images but remain incredibly vivid and of unrivalled beauty.

Greece is a country of beautiful contradictions, a constant journey in time, from the present to the past and back again.  Walk through the olive groves, through archaeological sites; move   to   clusters   of   islands,    go   through   beaches   and    mountains   and   explore breathtaking scenery.  In Greece the succession of images is not just our imagination; it is a sheer reality.  Traces of a centuries-old and important history is etched in every corner of Greek land: findings from  the  Prehistoric  and  Archaic  Periods,  unique  works  from  Classical,  Hellenistic,  Medieval  and Byzantine  monuments,  creations  from  folk  art  cultures,  traces  from  the  passing  eons  of  other civilizations  and  different  religions,  that  coexist  with  current  creations,  constructions  and  modern works  of  art.  Greece  is  a  true  paradise  for  cultural  tourism,  a  large  journey  into  history  and  art.

Educational  excursions,  theatrical  productions,  festivals,  pilgrimages,  visits  to  archaeological  sites, monuments and museums, excursions to study the natural environment, folk art and culture – these are just a few of the many things that Greece has to offer in the cultural tourism sector.  Whoever  really  wants  to  understand  Greece,  its  history  and  its  people,  he  will  find  an  unrivalled cultural experience through travelling into the area and chronological period of Greek culture.

The  wealth  and  diversity  of  the  Greek  seas,  the  endless  kilometers  of  the  Greek  coast and  the thousands of Greek islands, the protected sea areas covering thousands of square kilometers, the mild climate, the high percentage of sunshine and its interesting and varying landscape make Greece the ideal destination for the development of sea tourism activities.  The   islands   are   the   main   characteristic   of   Greece’s morphology and an integral part of the country’s culture and tradition.  Greek sovereign land includes 6,000 islands and islets scattered in the Aegean and Ionian Seas, of which only 227 islands are inhabited. This is a truly unique phenomenon for the European continent.

The Greek Archipelago takes up 7,500 km of the country’s total 16,000 km coastline, offering a highly diversified landscape: beaches stretching over many kilometers,  sheltered  bays  and  coves, sandy beaches with sand-dunes, pebble beaches, coastal caves with steep rocks and  dark  colored  sand  typical  of  volcanic  soil  and  coastal wetlands.  Many of these Greek beaches have been awarded the blue flag  under  the  Blue  Flags  of  Europe  Program,  providing  not only  swimming,  but  also  scuba  diving, snorkeling,  water skiing, sailing and windsurfing. Some  of  the  oldest  European  civilizations  developed  on  the Greek   islands (Cycladic,   Minoan   civilizations,   etc.), therefore  the  islands  have  unique archaeological  sites,  a distinctive  architectural  heritage  and  the  fascinating  local traditions of a centuries-old and multifaceted civilization.

Despite its small surface area, Greece is endowed with a particularly rich and diversified natural environment, with  singular  geomorphology,  intense  contrasts  and  many regions with great economical  value.  The  country’s  abundant  natural  “gifts”  -thousands  of  lace-like  (indented)  coasts, imposing mountains, caves and gorges, lakes, rivers, biotopes of rare beauty and unique ecosystems, coupled  with  the  mild  climate-  rank  it  among  the  ideal  destinations  for  ecotourism  and  alternative forms of tourism.
