Formally introduced as the “Cradle of Western Civilization,’ yet commonly known for its incredibly alluring and diverse islands, Greece offers a healthy balance between history and heritage on one hand and Mediterranean-style leisure and partying on the other. Greece is home of architectural jewels such as Corfu Town, Chania in Crete, Rhodes Town and the Cycladic Islands. The country also features a seemingly endless array of archeological treasures (e.g. the Acropolis and Parthenon), striking monasteries (especially Meteora and Mount Athos), plenty of hiking (e.g. Samaria Gorge), and even skiing (especially Arachova) opportunities.
As for those who simply want to vacation, Greece has long been a favorite among families and revelers alike. Greece has the twelfth longest shoreline in the world and neither tourists nor locals waste an opportunity to have some fun in the sun. Of course, there are plenty of islands as well as areas along the mainland’s coast that provide for a quiet stay. However, if looking for some of Southern Europe’s most vibrant beach bars and nightlife, then Greece will be an ideal destination for you. To describe Greece in only one sentence, it is a country that cherishes its past, lives for the present, and plans as if only to party.

I had never been to Greece before and had dreamed about it for a long time, so I wanted to make the trip worth my while. It was going to be an expensive adventure; I knew that. Purchasing your book was one of the best investments I’ve made as a newbie traveler, and in the end it saved me a ton of money by showing me which paths to take, which times to travel, and where to station myself. Thanks a lot, Charlie, for helping me make my dream come true.
My trip to Greece was planned for over a year until I came across your book. You shined a new light on an old dream of mine. Considering how well you seemed to know the place, the fact that you are a Greek, and since you had a firm grasp on how find the best placed in the region most efficiently, I changed my plans to coordinate with your itinerary. Best decision I’ve made all year. Thanks for the help, Charlie!
