BEST HOTELS IN GREECE
Fabled as the ancient home of Greek gods and legends, Greece's holiday destinations offer some incredible historic sites spanning four millennia.
On the mainland, you can stay in the capital and be bewitched by the Acropolis, which can be seen from almost every street corner in Athens. Take a hike up Mount Olympus, the mythical home of the Greek Gods, or venture towards Thessaloniki and enjoy sailing around the crystal clear waters of the Pelion Peninsula.
Many travellers use the mainland as a springboard to the islands, where you'll find charming fishing villages of white-washed and wisteria-strewn houses, lush groves of native olive trees and narrow cobbled lanes leading down to some the most beautiful bays in the Mediterranean.
From luxury beach resorts to rural boutique guest houses, here's our pick of the best hotels in Greece found on the mainland and on the Greek Islands.
