Summer in Greece

If you want almost-guaranteed sunshine, a laidback lifestyle, stunning beaches and warm Mediterranean waters, Greece summer holidays offer them all up with a side of culture and history.

Both the Greek mainland and its idyllic islands are ripe for exploring during the summer, and although some places - such as Santorini and Mykonos - may be supremely popular with families, couples and solo travellers alike (and for good reason), our experts can help you experience these incredible places from a different view and away from the crowds, or even suggest alternative destinations for you to get your fox of picturesque views and pretty villages.

Sailors will be in a watery paradise here, whether you want to learn how to sail for yourself or live in the lap of luxury on your own boat with a private skipper to take you where you wish. Back on land you'll still never be too far from the water so you'll have ample opportunity to enjoy beach days, snorkelling and swimming in the sea.

For a change of pace from lovely lazing in the sun, explore some of the country's famous historic sites such as the Acropolis of Athens, the Parthenon and Meteora, or simply pacing the cobbled streets of its bustling and lively cities, tasting delicious local cuisine and basking in the warm Greek hospitality and vibrant nightlife.
