The subject of the very first Rough Guide and the birthplace of Western civilisation, Greece continues to entice visitors and make history. From discovering the coolest Athens neighbourhoods to hiking your way up to Mount Olympus, home of the gods, or boarding a ferry to dozens of stunning islands, use our map of Greece to plan your trip.
Greece boasts four millennia of historic sights to explore; enter the lair of the Minotaur at Crete’s Knossos Palace, wander around the famous Parthenon and Acropolis in Athens and take in the view from the Metéora’s awe-inspiring monasteries. Or follow the winding roads of the spectacular Maní peninsula and enjoy the country’s long and varied coastline before relaxing under the reed canopy of a beachside taverna enjoying the local meze.
