Private Journey To GREECE

Private Journey To Greece – Ulysses lingered 10 years before coming home; Byron fell in love with the land and people; Lawrence Durrell wrote lyrically of island life: Greece seems to inspire all who come here. While it is commonly associated with blue seascapes and white-washed villages, Greece, with a rugged Balkan hinterland, architecture from classical to modern periods and islands dotted across three seas, exhibits stunning diversity. There are olive groves in flower, Chios’ mastic villages, sprawling Athens, crimson poppies every April, hirsute priests, old men sitting for hours over a single coffee and ferries nudging into rickety piers. Many visitors come seeking sun and sea, but are smitten by the hospitality of the Greeks and find they are as captivated as all who went before.
