Conference tourism, whether aimed at academic, business or cultural markets, is an important pillar of Greek national tourism policy. As a result, the Greek government, with strong support from local authorities, has been offering lucrative cash grants, employment subsidies and tax concessions to establish new conference facilities and expand existing ones. In a recent report on meetings and incentive travel, Greece ranked eighth in the world for conference overnight stays. Tourism Satellite Accounting Research, conducted by the WTTC (World Travel and Tourism Council) projects an increase in revenue from business travel to Greece, the benefits derived from which increased from $1.51 in 2001 to $2.69 in 2011.

Thessaloniki

Depending on where we have chosen our hotel in Athens, we look for a way to get to the Central Market to make it our starting point, which is not bad to start with…what a crazy fun market!

From here, after a stroll through its alleys, we will head towards Syntagma Square, the nerve center of the city, the place where most of the protests of the people that we have seen on TV so many times against the political class take place.

To get here, we will have to walk along a pedestrian street that is one of the main commercial axes of Athens. Here we will find the most famous international stores and street shows. At the end of it we will find the famous Syntagma Square, which crossing it to the end we will arrive at the Government Palace, the place where the Greek Prime Minister works, and where you can see the curious changing of the Guard at the tomb of the Unknown Soldier … (watch out! Each shoe weighs 3 kg …).

The Greeks brought theater, democracy, philosophy, mathematics and history to the Western world. The civilization of Ancient Greece received other civilizations, such as Roman, Byzantine and Ottoman. For this reason, we can find vestiges of these important civilizations in any part of Greece.

Greece lives intensely from tourism. Its coastline, its mosaic of islands and archipelagos dotted with turquoise water beaches, its friendly people, its gastronomy, its cuisine that straddles East and West and its history are a magnet for people who come on vacation from all over the world.

On our website, we invite you to discover little by little the beauty of Greece, its main cities and its natural parks. You will also find a wide range of places to visit -such as the amazing monasteries of Meteora-, accommodation and gastronomy of this ancient and fascinating country.

Greece is a legendary country, Greece is a place where legend, imagination, the hidden remnants of the gods of Olympus reappear among the ruins and the melting pot of cultures that is the Helad. Greece is a mixture, in an origin and perhaps it is the future of Europe, of Asia, of Africa. Bridge between peoples, country of gastronomy and millenary cultures, country that welcomes and helps. Greece deserves our respect and attention.
