Greece is the perfect spot for honeymooners looking for just the right mix of sun, amazing food and luxury accommodations. This picturesque country is every bit as beautiful as you’ve seen in the magazines with its pristine white houses and blue roof tops nestled in the hills overlooking tranquil blue waterscapes. Whether you decide to just visit one island such as Santorini or Mykonos or island hop, you will not be disappointed with all this country has to offer.
Greece boasts of plethora of historical sites that are must-sees! Here are a few favorites: Athens – The capital city, also known for the Parthenon. Ithaca – Home of the Greek poet Homer’s famous Odysseus Olympia – Site of the original Olympic Games Take note that Greece’s Mediterranean climate equates to hot summers. I recommend that you enjoy the mild weather months, which are May-June and September-October. Also, be mindful July and August attract the most tourists so travel rates and prices on the islands tend to go up.
FOODIE ALERT: Greek cuisine is divine! I can almost guarantee that you will enjoy the decadent Mediterranean dishes with their bountiful fresh seafood and produce. Here are just a few mouthwatering pictures of the dishes that I enjoyed while vacationing there.
Luxurious accommodations in Greece for your honeymoon are numerous. I suggest starting with a price point for your nightly stay and go from there to see the many choices you can have. Below is a picture of the St. John’s Resort on the island of Mykonos when I vacationed there. It was gorgeous!
My Recommended DO’s:
– Rent a car while in Greece. While the shops and restaurants on the islands may stay open late, there are a limited number of taxis on some of the island.It’s always best to have a backup plan after some late night shopping or partying.
– Do bring lots of Euros for spending money. There are so many great shops, you won’t be disappointed!
– Wear comfortable shoes. There is lots to do and see in Greece and the country tends to be rocky, even some of the beaches.
– Sample the local cuisine. There are so many great dishes, you will love it!
