More than 27 million travelers made their way to Greece in 2022, visiting the country’s gorgeous islands and coastlines, rural towns, and historic capital city of Athens. One look at its landscapes and it’s easy to see why travelers dream of visiting Greece — but there’s so much more to this Mediterranean nation.
“Everyone knows that Greece boasts stunning crystalline waters that make you want to dive right in and historical sites that whisper tales of the past. Its culinary delights are a perfect way to wrap up a day of exploring its unique cultural riches and vibrant art scene, but what truly sets Greece apart is its people,” Christos Stergiou, a travel advisor with True Trips, shared with Travel + Leisure. “Greeks have this incredible gift called philoxenia: hospitality taken to a whole new level. Our True Trips guests always describe the feeling of having new local friends who’ll go above and beyond to make their journey unforgettable.”
