Greece offers visitors historic highlights of mythical proportions and beach paradises that would make Poseidon jealous. And that's before you sit down to eat. Greek restaurants and nightlife would be worth a trip, even if modern civilization didn't start here. With almost three times as many archaeological sites than any other country, it's hard to know where to go. Start in Athens to visit the Acropolis, the ancient hilltop citadel and home to the iconic ancient Parthenon. The islands have a slightly different feel, but there is one constant: tantalizing water will invite you to take a dip. For white-washed towns and blue roofs, head to captivating Santorini. Crete, Greece's largest island, lays claim to Minoan ruins and Byzantine castles (and a quarter of Greece's tourists). The walled medieval old town of Rhodes is a bonus to its surrounding beaches and ancient ruins. Often overlooked, the northern mountains offer excellent hiking and scenery. Take advantage of Greece's weather and dine at one of the islands' countless restaurants on tzatziki and moussaka on a warm summer evening.
