Greece is a country located in southeastern Europe. It is bordered by Albania, Macedonia and Bulgaria to the north and Turkey to the East. Greece has access to the Aegean Sea, Ionian Sea and Mediterranean Sea. The capital and largest city of Greece is Athens.
Greece has a good network of roads, many ports and connections by ferry-car with Italy and the islands of the archipelago, which facilitates access to millions of tourists. The places that should not be missed visiting here are: Athens and its surroundings, Sunion Cape with the temple of Poseidon, Aegina island, Elefsis, Marathon; Peloponnesus with Epidaurus, Olympia, Corinth, Crete, Thessaloniki and others. The best time to visit Greece is between the Easter holiday and mid-June, when the beaches are not crowded and the weather is ideal for lying on the beach. The same conditions are found between late August and mid October.
