Greece’s actual name is the Hellenic Republic. In addition to that piece of information, there is much to know about this lush country and what makes it famous.
As the capital of Greece, Athens has been continuously inhabited for over 7,000 years, making it one of the oldest cities in Europe. In addition, it is also the birthplace of democracy, Western literature and philosophy and the Olympic Games.
No point of land in Greece is more than 85 miles from a body of water. Greece has about 9,000 miles of coastline, the 10th longest in the world.
There are over 6,000 islands in Greece, though only 200 are inhabited. Of them, each has their own distinctive character, from the whitewashed cave homes of the Cyclades to the lush, green Italianate Ionians, to the Dodecanese capped with Crusader castles.

First, of course, is a visit to the Acropolis. Arguably, the most famous structure in all of Greece, it dominates the skyline of Athens. Next, visit picturesque Santorini with its whitewashed homes with blue metal roofs, overlooking an impossibly blue sea. Or visit the Delphi, which sits on the sides of Mount Parnassus. In eras past, followers would come here to seek guidance from the Oracle at Delphi. Today, you will find temples, an impressive stadium, a theater, and fascinating ancient ruins.
