Greece travel tips

All that glitters can be found in Greece: beaches along the sparkling mediterranean, idyllic islands, wild nightlife, proud culture and epic food. It’s one big sun-drenched party, and you’re on the invite list. A Greece vacation typically starts in Athens, where a tour of the Acropolis is a must before heading to one of Greece’s 200 inhabited Greek isles. If this is your first Greece trip, Santorini and Mykonos are among the best Greece islands to visit. Honeymooners and couples flock to Santorini because it’s one of the most romantic spots in Greece. Meanwhile, Mykonos is, literally, where the party’s at. It’s perfect for young couples and groups of friends who want to dance, drink, sunbathe and sleep. If you visit these three destinations on your Greece vacation, you’re in good shape, but of course, there’s so much more to this beautiful country.

So glad you asked! Santorini and Mykonos are among the best Greece islands to visit on your Greece vacation— and for good reason! Santorini is stunning; you’ve probably seen photos of the bright white buildings and cobalt blue roofs that dot the coastline. It’s a romantic island beloved by honeymooners and couples alike. Mykonos is known for its wild nightlife — think dusk-till-dawn parties and champagne showers. You can’t go wrong with these two islands, but there are a handful of other Greek islands that deserve a stop on your next Greece trip. Some of the best Greece islands to visit include: Paros and Antiparos (a year-round destination that’s charming and laidback), Naxos (perfect for watersports like windsurfing or kitesurfing) and Corfu (for those wanting a luxe cosmopolitan getaway). Greece travel is a wonderful feast of experiences thanks to its many diverse islands!

Once you figure out your length of stay and budget, planning your Greece vacation comes down to what type of experience you want to have. Are you looking for a romantic vacation or planning your honeymoon? Do you want to lay on the beach all day and party all night? Are you a Greek mythology buff who wants to visit birthplaces, ruins, and archeological sites? Do you love off-the-beaten-path adventure? Once you determine how you want to experience your Greece trip, your Fora advisor can guide you on which Greek islands would best suit your interests and preferences. They can also recommend Greece all inclusive resortsif they work for your travel style. Oh, and one of our favorite tips for planning a Greece vacation is to not feel pressure to “see it all” in one trip. That way, you’ll have an excuse to visit again… and again!

Greece is most popular (and expensive!) during peak summer (July and August). If you’re looking to save money on your Greece vacation, consider visiting from mid-April to June or September to October, when you’ll have beautiful weather and less crowds. Spending time on smaller islands is also a great way to maximize your budget. Paros and Naxos, for example, are some of the best Greece islands to visit and they’re still somewhat under-the-radar compared to Santorini and Mykonos. Your Fora advisor can make recommendations on the best Greece islands to visit based on your personal preferences, budget and length of stay.

Your Fora advisor can alert you to Greece’s specific entry and exit requirements, and you can also check out official government websites for more information. One of the most important requirements to keep in mind is that your passport should be valid for at least six months from your date of departure.
