Greece Destination Information
Ancient Greece was the home of Zeus and his fellow gods and you will certainly be reminded of that when you visit Athens' Parthenon and Delphi's Temple of Apollo. Greece was also the birthplace of the Games. Other famous Greek births include science, math, philosophy and democracy.
But modern Greece is less a center of learning and more of a destination of simple, happy pleasures. If you want to relax and unwind or socialize and make new friends, this is the country for you. Here you will find delicious food and wine, beautiful beaches, charming villages, an endless coastline and little islands full of surprises. The myriad of islands in the Aegean Sea offers you a unique chance for island-hopping and partying. The Greek people are very welcoming, and famous for their warm hospitality. The landscape of Greece is varied, ranging from cool mountainous regions and coastal hills to plains and sun-drenched, rocky islands.

Below lies the bay of St. Paul, where the apostle landed during his voyages. The crusading Knights of St. John left the medieval city of Rhodes behind when they were defeated by Sultan Suleyman the Magnificent. The Ottoman Turks then occupied Rhodes for almost 400 years leaving mosques, minarets and a Turkish bath to mark their presence.
