A little bit of Greek luxury in troubled times

AS Greek people face terrible uncertainty amidst the crisis, many people are talking about how they can help. With much of the county’s economy reliant on holidaymakers, the idea of solidarity tourism is taking hold.

When it comes to helping out people in trouble, there are worse sacrifices than taking a holiday in this beautiful and inspiring country. For a destination capable of transporting you to multiple worlds with ease, it’s got to be Greece.

With attractions like the Acropolis of Athens, the Byzantine ghost town of Mistra, the astounding Santorini Islands, and the palace at Knossos, Greece has something in store for every taste. With such an eclectic mix of sightseeing spots, it’s an ideal venue for families planning an annual holiday – and here are some of the reasons why.

For Fantastic Panoramas

Sparkling blue waters, black volcanic sand, and pretty countryside: this is what heavenly views are made of. If you’d like to enjoy such views, child friendly holiday specialists Tots Too can arrange a reservation in one of the regal resorts overlooking the ocean! It’s well worth considering to make the most of the spectacular vista.

Here’s where you must go:


Stunning beaches, velvety mountaintops, a colourful mix of Venetian and French architecture and a magnificent bay. What’s not to like? Also, don’t miss the kumquat, a local fruit found in liquor, jam and jelly.


The main attractions are Zia, a charming mountain village with exquisite scenery and Asclepion, a hilltop healing centre again with panoramic views. Don’t miss the Hippocrates Square and the Castle of the Knights, a 15th century castle.

For History and Art

Greece, with a whole lot of mythological stories and oracles to its credit, is one of the oldest civilisations on Earth. If you’re seeking art, culture and historical attractions, it’s a prime destination for you.

Here’s what you shouldn’t miss:


No matter how many pictures you’ve seen of the Acropolis, nothing can prepare you for the awe-inspiring moment when you stand before this outstanding creation of mankind! Head to the Parthenon afterwards, and then to the beautiful beaches.


Filled with Byzantine architectural delights, Crete is home to the Palace of Knossos, the Archaeological Museum and the Church of Panagia Kera. Besides, it’s a pretty island with bike paths, and volcanic beaches.

Meanwhile, here’s a guide to all the Greek Islands so you can vacation in style!

For Romance

The stunning backdrop of Greece is perfect for bringing the sparks out and relighting warmth and longing between couples. Destinations to visit include:


Picture-perfect scenery, sugar cube architecture, the azure ocean waters, churches, panoramic views, and beautiful beaches: the perfect setting to have a leisurely, romantic break. You can also set sail on a yacht to tour around the Cyclades Islands.


The Island has an ancient volcano, vineyards, captivating villages Fira and Oira, and stylish restaurants overlooking the ocean. Watch sunsets with your spouse, sipping quality wine! And when you can tear yourself from the mind-blowing view, explore the prehistoric ruins of Akrotiri.

Quite a perfect way to vacation in Greece in style. See you at the Cyclades!
