Greece Travel Guide

The sight greets you time and again in Greece—a line of solid, sun-bleached masonry silhouetted against a clear blue sky. A land where temples, theaters, statues, a stray Doric column or two, the fragment of a Corinthian capital: these traces of the ancients are thick on the ground. The Greek countryside itself remains a stunning presence, dotted with cypress groves, vineyards, and olive trees; carved into gentle bays or dramatic coves bordered with startling white sand; or articulated into rolling hills and rugged mountain ranges that plunge into the sea.
