Things to Do in Greece

Greece is among the world’s most popular cruise destinations for a good reason, or lots of them.

Ancient history & culture

Greece is bursting with cultural pursuits and things to see, the country’s calendar is filled with festivals, exhibits and holidays. Whatever time of year you will come, there will be something great to do:

  • The Acropolis is the most important historic site to visit in Athens and the whole of Western Europe
  • Explore Mystras, Greece’s most spectacular medieval site, former Byzantine capital and fortified city
  • The Palace of Knossos is a must-see if you are on Crete

Delicious cuisine

Every region in Greece boasts its own unique flavours and cooking styles, so travelling around the country is a culinary adventure in itself:

  • Explore the numerous wineries all around Greece, for example the family-run Manousakis Winery in the Hania Province
  • Organic farms, producing their own olive oil, crumbling feta, honeyed soft cheeses and more should not be missed
  • Make sure you visit local tavernas wherever in Greece you are and enjoy fish straight from the sea or mussels steamed in ouzo

Spectacular nature

Greece is the place to be for nature lovers. The country is boasts volcanoes, mountains, forests, lakes, islands and much more:

  • The Vikos Gorge is the world’s deepest canyon in proportion to its width and features impressive viewpoints
  • The Valley of the Butterflies is a beautiful forest with hiking trails and colourful butterflies located on the island of Rhodes
  • Caldera is a volcano on the island of Nisyros, you may feel like you are in a science-fiction movie while visiting

Pristine beaches

If you are a dedicated beach lover, Greece will definitely deliver. The country is lucky to be surrounded by three seas: the Mediterranean, the Aegean and the Ionian. All of them are dotted with beautiful islands that boast white-sand, palm tree shaded dreamy beaches. Here are just some of our favourites:

  • The Red (Kokkini) Beach on Santorini is beautifully red all around
  • The Seychelles Beach with its emerald water and giant polished rocks is located on the island of Ikaria
  • The Balos Beach on Crete is a lagoon-like sandy beach that is heavenly but can get very crowded in the northern summer season

The Best Time to Visit

As with so many cruise destinations, the best time to visit Greece is one of the shoulder seasons:

  • April to May
  • September to October

The high season hasn’t started yet, so you can enjoy:

  • Lower prices
  • Fewer tourists
  • Mild weather
