Made up of more than 60 islands, Greece offers a wide range of popular attractions for tourists, one of which is the Acropolis and Acropolis Museum in Athens. Home to the Parthenon, one of Greece’s most recognized temples, the Acropolis and its museum offer a unique look at Ancient Greek life and architecture, along with a spectacular nighttime view of the city below.

Another popular attraction in Greece is Santorini, a volcanic island famous for its sunsets. The capital brings together the blue-domed churches and white-washed homes of Cycladic and Venetian architecture. Likened to Pompeii, the city of Akrotiri on Santorini immerses tourists in fantastically preserved ruins. Although it was destroyed by a volcano, Akrotiri’s ornate frescoes, multi-story buildings, and ancient artifacts provide an accurate look at the city’s advanced culture.

Known for its architecture is the city of Mystras, which boasts medieval houses, palaces, and frescoes. Abandoned during the eighteenth century, Mystras takes tourists back to a time when imposing castles and ornate monasteries were a regular sight.
