Tour of Greece
The remains are perched on the promontory, surrounded on three sides by the sea. The site is a popular day trip for tourists from Athens, with the sunset over the Aegean Sea, as seen from the ruins, a coveted sight.
Thessaloniki is the second largest city in Greece and the capital of the Macedonian region of northern Greece. Lively festivals, social events and a lively nightlife make this city the cultural capital of Greece.
Halkidiki is a trident-shaped peninsula near the city of Thessaloniki, which has excellent beaches. The three separate peninsulas can be roughly summarized as follows: Kassandra has the nightlife, Sithonia has the beaches and Athos has the monks.
Being closer to Thessaloniki, Kassandra is more urbanized, while the quieter Sithonia has campsites, hidden coves and crystal clear waters. Both are popular with Greek and Eastern European tourists. Much of the easternmost peninsula belongs to the monastic community of Mount Athos. It is accessible by boat and is open only to male pilgrims.
Things forbidden in greece
This list of places and things to see in Greece represents the carousel of beaches, cliffs, villages, viewpoints, sunsets, restaurants and temples that come to my mind every time I hear the word Greece. And it is just that, a carousel of images, what I come to pretend that you feel with this report, where I will go through with you, all those places we visited during our 18 days of travel in Greece that we believe are the best places to see Greece and that I’m sure will fill you with inspiration for your trip.
Hair standing on end, right? Grab a pen and paper because this article is not just a list of things to see in Greece, it is a list of emotions and places that will leave you, day after day, with your mouth open. Here we go!
I wanted to start this list of places to see in Greece with one of the surprises of our trip: the island of Zakynthos and the wonderful Cape Keri, where 100% white cliffs and the most celestial waters I have ever seen in my life left us speechless.
What to visit in Greece in 7 days
It was hard for me to return to civilization.I am writing this series of articles two months after I came out of the silent retreat. So there are certain things that, even if I try to describe them now, I don’t feel the same as I did then, and my descriptions are not appropriate.
eople get scared and don’t know how to react, they feel uncomfortable if you cry in front of them. That’s why I went for a walk, alone. I dipped my feet in the salty water and watched how the sea urchins felt my presence.
I watched and watched. I hadn’t spoken or had any physical contact with anyone for ten long days and it was beyond me. I did not want to think. I didn’t want to talk (especially not in English, which was not my language). I wanted to be quiet again. Maybe I was not ready to go out, so quickly, “to the outside world”. It was hard for me to think that I had not made the right decision. I wanted to go home (like on the 1st and 2nd days of meditation at Dhamma Neru) and be able to hug my brother.
I wanted to embrace my brother. I immersed myself in the sea and my mind calmed down, finally. I could control how I felt and I did. I ate delicious Greek food for dinner and slept soundly. Everything passes and everything is impermanent and, precisely because of that,

Greece is a safe country. Beware of pickpockets in big cities, on crowded beaches and cab drivers who may want to rip you off, but other than that, there is nothing else to be afraid of. If you are traveling alone, it is probably one of the quietest European countries in that respect.
I traveled to Greece in 2007 through a ten-day package tour. We discovered Athens (at the beginning of its economic crisis), passed by the Greek theater of Epidaurus, the Corinth Canal, the Temple of Poseidon at Cape Sunion and visited Olympia (where the first Olympics were held in Greece) and Delphi (with its mysterious temple of the oracle). A perfect trip for lovers of ancient history.
Due to the financial instability of the country, trains in Greece are very precarious and the state railway network is mainly based on the Athens-Alexandropolis (via Thessaloniki) and the Peloponnese network.
As in the case of Egypt, I think the best thing about Greece is its impressive history and for that reason, it is another of the few organized trips I have taken. To discover all the history of Ancient Greece, it is more appropriate to do it with guides and transportation in Greece, despite being a very touristy place, is still somewhat precarious.
