Do you know what’s better than your local Greek restaurant? When you’re eating gyros actually in the country, that’s what. Walk in the land of Zeus, Athena and all the other Greek gods you learned about in school when you take a trip to this pretty land in the Aegean. Take advantage of our Greece packages and you’ll be arm wrestling with Hercules in no time. Things to Do in Greece
You’re a history buff right? Even if you aren’t, you need to see some of the country’s historic sites during your Greece holiday. Head to the capital city of Athens and check out the ancient citadel of the Acropolis. Some of the buildings include the Propylaia, the Erechtheion and of course the Parthenon. Pay your respects to Zeus or you’ll end up eating a bolt of lightning.
When you’re done wandering around the mainland, check out our great Santorini packages and head over to this wonderful little island in the Southern Aegean Sea. Get yourself a set of wheels from lastminute.com.au’s Santorini car hire options so you can explore every centimetre. Drive from the ancient village of Thira and then over to Akrotiri, and why not play round in Fira for a bit? Shopping, Dining & Nightlife
If you’re looking for great shopping during Greece holidays, head to the base of the Acropolis and wander the streets of Plaka, “The Neighbourhood of the Gods”. If you hunt around this cheeky little hood, you can uncover antiques like old Roman coins and handmade jewellery. You’ve also got to drop some dollars at the flea markets in Monastiraki, where only the keenest of eyes can spot the real items from the imposters.
Holidays to Greece will involve eating. Lots and lots of eating. A stone’s throw from the Acropolis is the neighbourhood of Thissio. This place is loaded with outdoor cafeterias serving up spanakopita with cubed feta, classic Greek salads and pitas with gyros. When you’re over on Santorini, don’t be afraid to expand your palate. Eat some octopus, fried snails and lamb’s head. We’re not kidding; lamb’s head is a real dish. Baaa-bye.
Where’s the nightlife? That’s like asking where’s the beef. Shake your tailfeather at the bars and nightclubs in the neighbourhood of Psyri. In recent years, this area has transformed itself into one of the trendier places in the city to party in. And don’t let the city centre square of Syntagma slip your mind; the Greeks tear this place up pretty good when the sun dips into the Aegean. What’s Next
Lamb-stuffed gyros? Check. Ancient remains built by gods? Check. Friendly Greeks looking for a good time? You get the picture. This could all be yours when you book one of our Greece holiday packages, so what are you waiting for? Be spontaneous. Book at the last minute!
