Greece Vacations

Summary
Greece Vacation Packages are going to astound you for their in-depth level of concentration and consideration towards your jam-packed holiday!
Your senses are going to come alive the very moment you take in your first breath and look around you. The Greeks are deeply proud of their ability to feed anyone and everyone, lending to their outstanding friendliness and welcoming demeanor (many speak English, as well as the language of Greek). The crime in and around Greece is minimal, the local people are very family-oriented and do not tolerate unsafe conditions within the villages.
The beaches in Greece are known for their beauty (rarely overcrowded – you will always find a spot to spread out on), and their abundance and their edging of warm, tropical waters that are begging you to jump in. Some of the better ones include Myrtos Beach, Preveli Beach and Agia Anna Beach.
Culture
Greece Vacation Packages will take you back to the beginning of the story of this incredible country, starting with Athens and Thessaloniki being co-capitals. Greece has the eleventh-longest coastline in all of the world and about eighty percent of Greece is covered in mountains (Mount Olympus is the highest).
The cultural impact that Greece has had on the rest of the world would be due to their contributions in mathematics, science, literature, politic & governmental structure, historiography, democracy, philosophy and the Olympic Games (the first games was held around 776 BC at the end of the Dark Ages). Greece is one of the few countries in the world that are able to boast having seen all three stages of the stone age which is Paleolithic, Mesolithic and Neolithic.
Exploration
To see firsthand evidence of the earliest people to inhabit this country, all you need to do is make your way to Macedonia and visit the Petralona cave (270,000 BC) and also look to Franchithi cave. Dating back to the 7th millennium BC, Neolithic settlements can also be observed and are the oldest in Europe.
Throughout Greece Vacations, you will see architecture that reflect the Hellenistic & Roman periods of 323 BC to the 4th century (The Parthenon), architecture from the period of the 4th Century to 1453 (Hagia Sophia church) and the Ottoman period of the 15th Century to 1821 reflecting architecture like The Byzantine castle.
Food
Vacation Packages in Greece are going to do a real number on your taste buds, but in a great way. Two of the most ancient recipes in Greece (and still used today as side staples) are lentil soup and Skordalia, a puree of almonds, walnuts, crushed garlic blended into olive oil. All other traditional cuisines stem from Mediterranean basics, which incorporate only fresh ingredients into stapes like stifado, souvlaki, moussaka and spanakopita (just to name a few).
Greek salad is very commonly served with meals as are sides of dolmades, feta cheese and a variety of olives. Beverages are just as important to Greek cuisine as the foods themselves, and you will find a steady supply of ouzo, a large variety of wines (including retsina) and metaxa.
Nightlife
Vacations in Greece are going to have your evenings pulsating with live music within the numerous nightclubs (Rock’n’Roll, Mousiko Kafenio, Koukoutsi and Blue Bar). For something a little different with an intense nighttime vibe, make your way to the Pirate cafe and to Gazarte.
In Thessaloniki, the La Doze Bar is quite the atmosphere (a mix of everything), and if you want to jump onto a boozing cruise, then go to Boat Bars.
