There are so many to choose from. Easter is a very important occasion throughout Greece so check the dates of the Greek Orthodox Easter (it changes every year) and see if you can find flight deals to Greece to coincide with it. There are solemn candlelit parades throughout the week and then joyous celebrations and feasts on Easter Sunday. Apokreos is the equivalent of a Mardi Gras carnival but it lasts for three weeks in and around February, depending of the date of Lent. Patras is particularly famous for its carnival – expect to see traditional costumes, fancy dress, folk dancing and lots to eat and drink. Epidavros hosts performances in its well-preserved amphitheatre throughout the summer, an opportunity to experience the perfect acoustics of this ancient structure. There is an August Moon Festival every year, coinciding with the fullest, brightest moon of the year, usually a chance to listen to music in iconic settings by romantic moonlight. Further North, Thessaloniki hosts an international film festival in November each year.
Even a simple meal of bread and salty black olives washed down with a glass of retsina (the famous Greek wine with a tang of pine resin) is a pleasure in Greece but of course there are elaborate dishes to sample as well, starting with moussaka, delicious layers of aubergine and minced lamb baked together. Then there are all the wonderful grilled meats, seafood, stuffed vegetables and vine leaves, and fresh salads, served with creamy pink taramasalata or olive oil and lemon juice. In winter there are substantial dishes of stifado, a rich meaty stew and fasolatha, a white bean soup packed with tomatoes, garlic and herbs. Loukoumadis are tiny doughnuts sprinkled with sugar and cinnamon or drizzled in honey to have with your coffee as you sit and watch the world go by.
If you can, plan to visit some of the islands as each one has its own personality and atmosphere and hopping on and off the small ferries that criss-cross the Aegean is an adventure in itself. Needless to say, there are ample opportunities to visit some of the most iconic buildings in the world such as the temples of the Acropolis or the Oracle of Delphi on the slopes of Mount Parnassus. Then there are the many superb diving sites along Greece’s thousands of miles of coastline and in fact there is a festival of diving every year, and the hiking trails on both the mainland and the islands. There are trails on one of the most famous mountains in the world – Mount Olympus. We don’t think of Greece as a destination for skiers but there are some ski resorts on Mount Parnassus, so book your Greece flight deals for a winter break, Greece could be the place for a skiing holiday with a big difference.
In common with all the other Schengen countries, Greece allows British citizens visa-free entry and the right to stay for up to 90 days; however, keep an eye on the number of days you may have spent in other Schengen countries as they all count towards the total of 90 days within any 180-day period. Passports must be less than ten years old and the expiry date must be at least three months after the return date shown on your return ticket. Greece border officials have the right to ask to see a return ticket and proof of sufficient funds for subsistence throughout the stay.
