If this looks and sounds Greek to you, you’re in the right place. Greece and the Greek islands have been taking our breaths away for three decades and counting, and now it’s your turn. Experience ancient history and some of the world’s greatest wonders up close: Stroll through the Akropolis as the sun sets over Athens. Greet a new incredible vacation day by watching the sunrise in Santorini. Trust us, you’ve never had a real Greek salad unless you’ve eaten it in Greece. Speaking of authentic culinary experiences. Eating in Greece is often family-style so everyone can try what’s fresh and in season: from a seemingly never-ending spread of delicious mezze (appetizers) to yummy meats and fish fresh from the charcoal grill. Paired with a cold ‘Mythos” or one of the many one-of-a-kind acclaimed Greek wines, you’ll never be hungry or thirsty – unless you want to be.

What’s traveling to Greece like with Inside Europe?
Every day’s a great one when you’re on vacation in Greece. Did you know that the Greeks LOVE their coffee — morning, afternoon and into the night. If you’ve never tried a Freddo Cappuccino, you’re missing out. With Inside Europe, you’ll see what’s on your bucket list in Greece and then some. We can’t wait to share favorite places in this incredible destination. Start or end in the capital city of Athens. Explore local neighborhoods, get off the busy streets in Plaka, meet local designers, eat at family-owned tavernas or how about drinks with THE view? See spectacular sites like the Acropolis close-up and without the crowds. We’ll open doors to hidden gems and dish up delicious food and drinks. Each new day brings you closer to what Greece’s all about as you travel like a local with the locals.
Cruise the Greek Islands
Love watching “Below Deck”? We’ll get you aboard your very own Greek cruise experience — without the cameras and drama (unless you insist). Be it island hopping in the Ionian or Aegean sea on a private luxury yacht, a sailboat or catamaran, or how about a boutique five star expedition cruise. Experience genuine Greek hospitality, delicious food and drinks, plus personalized excursions and activities await you in Greece. If you think bigger is better, we partner with leading cruise lines like Regent Seven Seas, The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection, Ocenia and Silversea, but also small(er) boutique vessels from Atlas Ocean Voyages or Ponant. We’ve checked each cruise out before you check in — just like the beautiful Greek hotels where we recommend to stay before and or after to make the most of your vacation in Greece.
Come Hungry, Be Happy
Greek food isn’t just incredibly delicious, but also surprisingly healthy. Digging into the Mediterranean diet is not just tasty, but great for you. Traditional hearty fare like Gyros and Moussaka are traditionally paired with leafy greens, sun-ripened tomatoes and juicy cucumbers that hydrate you from within. And that’s just the beginning… Every region, every village dishes up their own specialties, and we’ll recommend you do as the locals do: eat what’s fresh and in season. How about a sumpteous Cretan Mezze lunch on a family-owned winery with grandma cooking up your feast while her daughter and granddaughters pour you white, reds and rosés made from indigenous grape varieties that are all the rave on the wine scene? You’ll eat amidst the vineyards and may never want to leave.
