Greece Cruises

About Greece

Greece is officially known as the Hellenic Republic. It is situated at the southeastern part of Europe. The countries surrounding it are Albania, X-Yugoslavia, Bulgaria and Turkey. The seas surrounding Greece are the Aegean Sea, the Mediterranean Sea and the Jonian Sea. Greece has abundant land resources and plenty of plants and animals. Hence, people often secure tickets that will help them experience Greece cruises. The land scenery of Greece is naturally wonderful with lots of different mountains. Plants grown in Greece include the olives, oranges, dates, pomegranates, figs, cotton and tobacco. Trees found, on the higher lands are oak, black pine, chestnut, beech and sumac. Going up higher, one can find these flowers: Anemone and cyclamen and at above 5,000ft (1525m) the lichens and mosses are found.

Attractions in Greece

Greece cruises offer people the opportunity of visiting some of the top attractions in the world that are situated in Greece. These attractions include: Olympia, Delphi, Mycenae, Meteora, Dion, Samaria George, the Corinth Canal, the temple of Appolo in Andrit Saina, Athens and Knossos Royal Palace in Crete.

Olympic is situated in the West Peloponnesus. Greece cruises can be traced back to 776 BC or even before then when the first Olympic Games were organized. Olympia has several monuments such as the temple of Zeus, the temple of Hera, the Stadium, the Bouleuterion, the prytaneion and the Archaeological Museum. In Dolphi, tourists are fascinated by the cultural objects found there. Mycenae is remarkable for being the place where those that won the Trojan War got their habitation. Meteora is a collection of monasteries built on precipitous rocks. The amazing buildings have caused more Greece cruises to be organized by interested tourists and cruse liners. The temple of Apollo was raised in the 5th century to be the domain to the god of the sun.

Another place to visit in Greece is the Peloponnese. The area boasts of some of the most beautiful land features in Europe.

Certainly, Greece is not a place that can be explored in just one month or two. But since Greece cruises may cause one to stay for a limited time, getting it as much as possible within a year will help in discovering the hidden treasures in the country.

When to organize Greece Cruises

The best time to go to Greece depends on the major purpose of going. For one who likes the company of others, then July and August are the best times to visit since there will be lots of people there at that time (including students). It is important to make hotel reservations as fast as possible to avoid the rush and get them at cheap rates. On the other hand, people that love quieter environment can get Greece cruises around May, June, September and October. These are times when it is best to visit the islands. The winter period is another opportunity to explore Greece without so many distractions because there are not so many tourists at this time. The winter in Greece can still allow maximum enjoyment since the temperatures there are still mild around the lowlands.
