Greece is Europe's version of paradise: the sparkling Mediterranean ocean, balmy evenings, beautiful islands, and sugar-white beaches make it a popular hotspot for people who want to live the island life but also don't want to trek all the way to somewhere like the Caribbean. It's not all sun-soaked archipelagos and coral-filled ocean though - if you need more - follow the tales of mythological legends into the mainland and brush up on your history (while checking out some pretty amazing ancient Greek ruins.) Then pop into a traditional Greek taverna for some incredible local food and an ouzito (Greece's version of a mojito!)
