Explore the history and beauty of this ancient land.
Though Greece has seen a tumultuous political landscape in recent years, it remains one of the most popular travel spots in Europe thanks to its extensive history, beautiful coastline, and enviable Mediterranean climate. As one of the first civilizations in modern Europe, Greece is the birthplace of colorful mythology, the modern alphabet, and organized democracies. This ancient history is still very much alive in Greece, particularly with a wedding in Athens, the capital city. What’s perhaps most striking in Athens is the way daily life carries on amidst the ruins, with modern metro lines shuffling locals to work and trendy restaurants tucked away in unassuming, millennia-old courtyards.
