GREECE

VISIT THE OLD, CELEBRATE THE NEW

Greece. The name alone conjures images of ancient civilizations and the wonderful structures they left behind (the Parthenon/Acropolis), as well as the influential philosophers (Plato, Aristotle, Socrates) who helped lay the foundations for Western philosophy as we now know it.

But if a journey back in time to witness the history of this great land seems inconvenient, you couldn't be more mistaken. From the country's modern airport to the souped up ferries that shuttle visitors between its captivating Mediterranean islands, getting around during your Greece holiday will be easier than ever.

And whether you're a history buff, or just a traveler in search of a good time, there's a lot more to see and do than marvel at the architecture. Quality beach time, for example, can be had in Marathon, site of the battle of Marathon in 490 BC which gave rise to the modern-day distance race by the same name. The same can be said for Rhodes, the largest of the Dodecanese islands. Named the "sun island," Rhodes is the place the Greeks themselves go when they need a break from the everyday.

For more adventurous island hopping, consider Crete, a rugged destination marked by towering mountains, deep gorges, aromatic wildflowers, and breathtaking 360-degree views.
