Travelling to Greece

Few places in the world can boast a cultural heritage as rich and as long as Greece’s and its importance to the history of Europe cannot be overstated. As a result, the museums, archaeological sites and historical attractions in the country are seemingly endless and many of them are situated on the islands.
