Places to visit in Greece

Greece is one of the best places to visit in the world and we loved our trip. It was so hard to choose between all of the options! We can’t wait to go back and see more Greek islands and more of the mainland, too.

Read about our first trip (One of many I hope!) to Greece in these posts:

Greece Food – olive oil, feta cheese and more
