Our Experiences: We´ve been twice to Greece. One to Athens and Peloponesus and other to the Islands. The cultural side of Greece is present everywhere, but the main stream is in the Inland portion such as Athens, the Peloponesus and Delphus. But for us, the visit to the Minoan civilization treasures, like the Minotaur Palace in Crete and all the ruins of Thira in Santorini, were the Greece trip apogee. The Minoans lived peacefully with advanced technology since 3,000 BC and suddenly disappeared in a cathastrophic event arround 1,600 BC, that recently has been linked to the Atlantis legend. Amazing ! The best beachs are in Rhodes Island, In southern Crete and in Zakynthos Island ( which we didn´t go yet )
Hotels we love and recommend: Ledra Marriott ( Athens )
