From crystal clear beaches, to seafood that melts in your mouth. There's no comparison to anywhere else in the world. It's Greece.

Many travelers use Athens as a place to check off some ruins and head to the islands. Personally, I loved spending a more significant amount of time exploring the city. I recommend it for female travelers, too, and backpackers can find hostels here.

Greece takes forever to explore, yet only a moment to fall in love with. From the capital Athens to the most remote of islands or mountain villages, this country is full of charm, charisma and surprises. Been going there for years and every time it feels more and more like coming home.
