Things to Do in Greece

Beautiful sunsets, romantic islands and picturesque mountains make the perfect location for a Bollywood film. And that's why several have been shot in Greece and in Santorini! Here are some of the top locations along with the things that you can do there.

  • Athens:

The ancient capital of the world is a perfect blend of history and edginess. Iconic monuments, street cafes and al fresco dining – the mere thought itself provokes excitement. The magnificent Acropolis Museum in the city centre has witnessed the city's many transformations and remains a prime tourist spot.

While in Athens you must visit the classic restaurants, shops, cafes and entertainment quarters like the Gazi. The temple of Poseidon and other monuments in the surrounding region of Attiki are also a must visit. You can visit the historic Marathon and relax at nearby beaches.

  • Santorini:

    Santorini might be the place that has been in your dreams for long enough and by now has conquered half of your imagination. Formed by a volcanic eruption, it is spread like a multi layered colourful cake.

    The sunset at Santorini is a reason enough to travel Greece. The beauty of place is no secret and draws millions of tourists, some of which happens to be the leading celebrities of the world. While in Santorini, enjoy the excellent wineries, exotic hotels and colourful beaches.

  • Delphi

    A UNESCO World Heritage Site and the seat of Oracle was chosen by ancient Greeks as the navel of Earth and they built the Sanctuary of Apollo here. Even if the ancient Greeks hadn't chosen it, its spectacular cliff side location would have made a marvellous city of modern times.

    Despite apparent commercialism and large number of tourist buses running through the modern village, the place has a magical feel that cannot be expressed in words.

  • Peloponnese:
  • A land of legends, a land where myths come true and mortals becomes immortals. The legend of Hercules, the tale of Troy and the expedition of Argonauts were all set in Peloponnese.

    Not far away from Peloponnese is the modern village of Olympia, the place where Zeus allegedly held the first Olympic Games to celebrate defeating his father Cronos in wrestling. A birthplace of modern Olympics and the place where the Olympic torch is set ablaze every four years.

    These are just a few of the many magnificent places in the beautiful country. If there is a nation in the world where imaginations become reality and legends are reborn, it is undoubtedly Greece.

Vikrant Survase

Fortunately, I did not have to make a claim on my last trip to Greece. However, the ease in obtaining the plan and the peace of mind while travelling outside India is worth appreciating. The plans of ICICI Lombard for Schengen countries are appreciable

No claim made during the trip, but the coverage provided by ICICI Lombard was exactly the one we wanted and the documentation was very easy and simple. Enjoyed our trip to Greece and other Schengen countries.
