Greece Quick Travel Guide
With a travel rating of 78%, Greece represents the locale where most PlanetHoppers! at one point or another have dreamed about island hopping a summer away. If you have an interest in history, this is the granddaddy of all destinations. You can tour such ruins as the Acropolis, Mt. Olympus, the Temple of Apollo at Delphi and the Temple of Poseidon at Cape Sounion. Each and every one of these help to form the complex web of legend that has become synonymous with Greek mythology. Then, when you've completely saturated yourself with the shadows of the past, you can hop on a ferry and begin one of the world's classic journeys around the Greek Islands. Mandatory stops along the way include the island of Rhodes, where one of the seven ancient wonders of the world stood - the Colossus of Rhodes, Santorini, where you can lounge on the red sand beaches, and the mighty Crete, which was the hub of one of the ancient world's mightiest empires. But if time and money allow, just keep hopping, because there are almost more options than could ever be listed, and they all offer something unique and different. If you've ever claimed about not having enough options, then Greece is definitely the place for you.
