Greece is just the perfect destination for practically everyone not living there, because of its fantastic blend of the past, present and the future. Following is a brief look at its top cities/towns:
Athens: The capital of Greece is experiencing an era of renewal which was initiated by the 2004 Olympics. Be it the spellbinding Acropolis or the renowned Parthenon temple, there are sights aplenty here, and that does nothing to take away the fact that the city is evolving as a truly global metropolis in the times to come. Like many grand European cities, Athens too, has an air of magnanimity about it, although the people are still as friendly and hospitable as they always were. Also, in the past few years, the city has become a lot more financially stable, and as a result of that, more sophisticated, as one can see new restaurants, shops and hotels opening up. However, the most important and visible change is that of the historic centre, which is not even close to its previous self ever since cars were banned, as the pedestrian promenade has become Europe’s longest as well as most stunning, with a multitude of ancient sites linked to it. The huge archaeological park fuses the past and present together beautifully, and the cultural and social life of Athens is also centred around the ancient monuments.
Santorini: The town deserves all the accolades it is getting, such fantastic is the ambience and the scenic beauty, so much so that even someone who has been there, done that is standing in awe in front of the surreal landscape. The caldera, with so many multicoloured cliffs is a sight to beckon, but if one wants to truly experience the feeling, it is best to go via the slow ferry with open decks, skipping the enclosed catamaran or hydrofoil altogether.
The town is also quite known for its sunsets, and the village of Oia, located at the northern tip of the island is one of the more popular sunset viewing places, since there is a clear view of the sun as it sinks below the horizon. Going further south, one can see the last glimpses of the setting sun on the islands of Nea Kameni and Thirasia. However, the simple fact is that one can enjoy sunsets from any part at the rim of the caldera.
Kos: The destination offers something truly unique that stretches beyond the resort hotels and the fascinating welcomes, and that is also the reason why the city is second only to Kos in terms of popularity as well as population. It is a lot less commercial than many places in Greece and Europe, and hence provides a more tranquil experience. However, there are plenty of things that can be done, like cycling, going to the beach or bar, going for drives on the hills, and so and so forth.
