Acropolis & Acropolis Museum

Let’s face it, the Acropolis tops every list of tourist attractions in Greece that’s ever been written – but that doesn’t necessarily mean it’s wrong to do so. For despite the noise, dust and crowds the Acropolis is an absolute must-see for anyone visiting Greece or interested in the past. While not necessary the most slick and ordered experience, it’s nonetheless top of most people’s wish lists when visiting Greece. What many people don’t experience however the new Acropolis Museum is and to miss it would be a real mistake. Modern, fascinating and full of unique artefacts and information, you really shouldn’t see the Acropolis without also exploring the museum.

Akrotiri

Not many tourists make it to the ancient site of Akrotiri on the island of Santorini. In fact, a roof collapse several years ago led to the site being closed to visitors for many years. However, now reopened, Akrotiri is simply astonishing and, in our minds, rightly ranks among Greece’s top tourist attractions. Likened by many to Pompeii, this ancient city was also destroyed by a volcano. However, it’s almost 2,000 years older than its Italian counterpart and its brilliantly preserved ruins show just how sophisticated this truly ancient culture was. Two or three story buildings, ornate frescoes and much, much more stand as testament to the advanced nature of life here almost four thousand years ago. Some have even speculated that Akrotiri was in fact the fabled city of Atlantis…

Epidaurus

Providing one of the best sights anywhere in Greece, the ancient theatre at Epidaurus is a wonder to behold. Built to accommodate 15,000 people and still extremely well preserved, this is just one of many things to discover at an ancient Greek city which dates back well over 2,000 years. This popular tourist attraction is absolutely vast; set over three levels it offers a startling insight into Ancient Greek life.

Mystras

Set atop a beautiful hilltop landscape, the medieval city of Mystras contains a wealth of scenic churches, palaces, streets and houses all topped by an imposing castle which looms large at the very peak of the summit. The most intriguing thing of all is the fact that this town was abandoned sometime around the eighteenth century, meaning visitors get an experience which feels very much like stepping back in time. Don’t miss the attractive monasteries and their fantastic frescoes.
