Attractions from Greece

Athens museums (Athens)
The National Archaeological Museum in Athens is a fantastic museum where you, among other things, can see the amazing gold treasures from Mykonos. The Goulandris Museum of Ancient Greek Art is also interesting. It has e.g. a collection of elegant marble figures, which have inspired among others Picasso.
The Acropolis (Athens)
When in Athens, you can't get out of seeing the Acropolis, where you'll find the ruins of the Parthenon Temple. The ruins of the gods 2400-year-old city can be seen from virtually anywhere in Athens. In the year 510 B.C., the Delphic oracle predicted that it should be the city of the gods, where after the building of the temples where begun - a truly wonderful sight.
The old district of Plaka (Athens)
Plaka, the old Greek district in the north-eastern part of Athens, by the Acropolis, is where you can get a feel of how the ancient Greece looked like, and where you can go explore the narrow alleys. In spite of mass tourism, this labyrinthine area has kept its charm.
The Theatre of Dionysos (Athens)
The ancient Theatre of Dionysos is situated by the southern part of the Acropolis, and is where the ancient Greek played their tragedies. You can almost still hear the chorus sing. There are quite a few arrangements here during the summer festival, which is a great experience.
The Palace of Knossos (Crete)
When in Crete, you have to see Knossos, which is an impressive palace outside of the capital, Iraklio, and one the most remarkable attractions on Crete.
The town of Paleohora (Crete)
Paleohora is a small town on the west coast of Crete, and was "discovered" by a bunch of hippies in the 1960s. This turned life in the otherwise quiet and anonymous oasis of the small fishing village upside down, but it is still an attractive place because of its relaxed atmosphere.
Amorgos (Cyclades)
Amorgos, with its ochreous rocks and clear, green water, is incredibly beautiful, as well as very mountainous and good for hiking. The diving scenes from the film "The Big Blue" were shot in Amorgos, and if you like diving and snorkelling, you shouldn't miss this island.
Naxos (Cyclades)
Naxos is the largest island in the Cyclades and therefore also where most things go on. In the old times, Naxos was famous for its cultivation of wine, but today it's the possibilities for surfing and doing other kinds of water sports that attract people. Many chose to bike around the island and visit its highest point, Mt Zeus, which is 1003 metres high.
Paros (Cyclades)
Paros is definitely the cosiest island in the Cyclades and has a charming seaside promenade, where one can dine in one of the many restaurants, while watching the ferries constantly sailing to and fro. Paros has a good nightlife and a butterfly valley, which is worth visiting. Otherwise, the beaches are the greatest attraction in Paros.
Chios (Greece)
Chios is situated very close to Turkey and is dominated by two mountains Profitis Elias and Oros. The port holds an archaeological museum and a museum of Modern Greek sculptures. The entire island has nice beaches, charming fishing villages with small taverns and several monasteries and churches to visit.
