Did you know that no part of Greece is more than 137 km (85 miles) from the sea? With thousands of islands, and as many ancient ruins, this birthplace of democracy is ridiculously beautiful, laid back, and deeply enjoyable!
Philosophy, trade, architecture, science, and politics are just some of the ways that the Ancient Greek world influences our own world today.
But Greek culture is also about a relationship with the sea, nature, and community. It’s the everyday life and cultural traditions of Greece that lure us back to Greece again and again, every bit as much as its beaches and ancient sites.
