Passport to Greece
With timeliness marvels all around, there's no wonder they call it Classical Greece
The hunt for picturesque moments now sits high on today’s vacationer’s to-do list. And if you’re into mythology, then thank heavens the travel gods have gifted us scenic gems like Greece.
From the scenery to the history, there’s no wonder Greece remains an ultimate bucket list pursuit. Athens is heavy with history. A modern, metropolitan seems as if it magically sprouted in between fixtures of classical and neoclassic architecture. Somehow these ancient feats pair harmoniously with the city’s more modern marvels, which sums up the general atmosphere of the city—innovative but proudly traditional.
The architectural motifs shift as you head toward the Cyclades (a chain of Greek islands south of the mainland). In Santorini, a cluster of blue-domed roofs and stark all-white walls stack the seaside. Stunning archways and alluring stairways, hallmarks of the Cycladic architecture, intrigue wandering tourists to come hither and almost always lead to another charming view of the city. Nearly every turn of the island—from the sapphire waters of the Aegean to a labyrinth of cobblestoned streets—presents a wonderful backdrop, so you’re able to click and capture “Instagram gold” with no real effort.
Yet the true beauty of Greece is a character that’s far deeper than what meets the eye. It oozes a romantic charm that can’t quite been captured in photos.
