From idyllic islands and ancient amphitheatres to fascinating cities and thrilling nightlife, a hotel break in Greece is the ultimate holiday experience.
One of the most popular tourist destinations in the world, Greece offers a remarkable range of historical, cultural and natural wonders. With cheap flights available to many exciting cities and regions, and accommodation ranging from simple self-catering residences to luxurious boutique hotels, a Greek hotel break is affordable for travellers on a variety of budgets. Nature lovers will find plenty of opportunities to enjoy the Great Outdoors, from bike tours of the Peloponnese to sea kayaking in the Cyclades and long, picturesque hikes through quaint villages and rugged, rocky countryside. Offshore, the vast archipelago is central to the country’s culture and traditions, and whether it’s Crete, Kos or Kythira, the Greek islands offer visitors the chance to enjoy countless blue flag beaches, charming tavernas and the famous local hospitality. The most popular choice for a city hotel break in Greece is Athens, where the ruins of the iconic Acropolis, an ancient citadel situated on a rocky outcrop, tower over a vibrant modern metropolis with a wealth of excellent restaurants and world-class museums. However, those looking to experience the country's contemporary heart can also head to Thessaloniki, a young, multicultural city that is considered its cultural capital, with a fantastic arts scene and more bars and cafés per capita than anywhere else in Europe.
