Areas Visited: Athens, Santorini Island, Delphi, Thessaloniki. (2009)

Greece is a country very rich in history and natural beauty. The food is also very good. The weather is warm and the beaches are nice. It's necessary to visit one or more of the islands. And although Athens is a large, dirty city, it's necessary to spend a couple of days exploring the archeological sites.

Greece is less expensive that most other European countries on the Euro. Transportation can be a hassle on the mainland as there are limited train routes and the bus system may not be going where you want to go when you want to go.

It is very hot and humid.

I recommend visiting Greece to enjoy the islands, visit the many archeological sites and eat the wonderful food.
