Longing for some Greek sun

One of our Greek friends was complaining about the incessant rains a few weeks back and how she wished she was back in her sunny home town. Talking to her, we learnt about so many exotic sounding places, some of which I had heard only in Greek mythology like Crete - related to stories of the Minotaur, Icarus and Theseus and Rhodes, where the Colossus of Rhodes (one of the seven wonders of the ancient World)was one located. I have been fascinated with Greek mythology since I was a child and would definitely love to visit the places associated with them.

Known as the cradle of western civilization and the birthplace of democracy, there is a lot to see and experience in Greece. Their rich cultural heritage, the diverse locations - from thicks forests and rolling countrysides to sunny islands and cosmopolitan cities. The country has something for everyone. It was also nice to know that the crime rate in Greece is among the lowest in the whole of Europe.

A few friends recommended the Island of Myconos, one of the top international tourist destinations in Greece. Popular because of its its cosmopolitan character and exciting nightlife. I would rather visit some of the places off the beaten track. One advantage is that these places would give you an authentic feel of Greece and another advantage is that these places are cheaper to visit as well.

Greece holidays can be affordable. I was delighted to find so many cheap holiday deals to Greece on various sites.
