Greece Destination Guide
Getting to, from and around Greece
Direct flights to Greece from the UK vary from 3 and a half to 4 hours, depending on your destination. Charter, scheduled and low-cost airlines offer direct flights so it's worth shopping around.
You can also explore the Greek Islands by boat, either by ferry, driving yourself around or why not enjoy a cruise that takes you into the ports and offers various excursions for passengers.
Once on land, getting around the mainland or islands is easiest done by car, although if it's a beach holiday you are after, shuttle coaches can be organised in advance to take you between the island's airport and your hotel.
Things to do in Greece
For a sunny destination, there really is something for everyone and each area of Greece has it's own little quirks.
For a short city break or if you're in need of some culture, Athens makes for a fantastic cheap weekend break, offering sunshine, history and plenty of activities. If it's a relaxing beach holiday, then there's plenty to choose from. From the steep hills and stunning views on Santorini, to the gorgeous beaches of Zante, be sure to pick your beach holiday destination wisely. If on the other hand you are here to party, Mykonos has become the self-proclaimed party island in Greece, with a vibrant atmosphere, ideal for a clubbing beach holiday with your mates.
Where to stay in Greece
From budget 2-star apartments to luxury 5-star hotels, the range of accommodation in Greece is more than enough. It's worth taking into consideration why you are visiting Greece before you pick the island you want to stay at and book a holiday or hotel.
Athens is great for a city break, while Mykonos is more of a party island, or if you're after something much more chilled and quiet, the island of Santorini is probably the ideal holiday location for you.
