For such a small country, Greece has played a large part in our collective history. Explore the birthplace of democracy and the foundations of life as we know it by boat, weaving between the beautiful Greek islands and visiting the ruins of one of history’s most advanced civilisations.
A visit to Greece is sure to awaken your senses with its evocative cultural heritage and complex history. The whole country is bursting with historical sites and ancient monuments. From the Acropolis in Athens, which was created to celebrate the city’s rise to the zenith of its power, to the Greco-Roman ruins on the island of Delos and the medieval UNESCO World Heritage site of Rhodes Town, there is so much to unearth in this momentous land.
There are 56 islands of the Cyclades in the southern Aegean Sea, offering you the opportunity for both relaxation and exploration. Sit back and soak up the picturesque scenes of largely uninhabited Mediterranean landscapes peppered with dazzling white houses, twisting, cobbled alleyways, blue-domed churches, hilltop windmills, and volcanic cliffs above black sand beaches.

Weather & Climate
The climate is very seasonal – spring, summer, autumn and winter are very distinct. Winter can see temperatures drop to low minus numbers, whilst the summer period from May to August can see them soar above 30°C.
When to go
Czech Republic is an all year round destination. The months of September and October will still be hot but are also likely to be drier than preceding months, so it may be preferable to travel during this time.
