City breaks in Greece From beaches to rolling hills and mountains there is something for everyone

City breaks in Greece are as popular today as they have ever been and for good reason. Great food and wine, a Mediterranean climate especially in the south and extremely great value holiday rentals. During the hot summer months, the islands get swamped with tourists especially those of international appeal such as Crete, Corfu and Paros to name a few. Greece is a country that caters for all its visitors throughout the year from the beautiful beaches on the islands to the relaxing countryside. And not forgetting the snow capped peaks around Mount Olympus where summer holidays are also very popular for hiking, mountain biking and even skiing during the winter.
