Ancient history and beautiful beaches are some of the best attractions in Greece

Those who are trying to decide on which attractions in Greece to see have plenty of beautiful locations to choose from, such as Athens, Delphi and Santorini, which offer up varying ancient and tropical sites to explore.

The capital city of Athens is a remarkable sight, as ancient monuments are situated among a bevy of modern architecture. The contrast of old and new lifestyles makes for a stunning scene. Sight-seers should check out attractions like the Parthenon and Acropolis, as well as Hadrian’s Arch and Memorial to the Unknown Solider.

In Delphi, tourists will find the Temple of Zeus, which is one of the seven wonders of the ancient world built nearly 2,500 years ago in 5th century BC. An even older attraction is the Olympic Stadium, where the first games were held in 8th century BC.

After spending a couple days exploring Grecian history, the volcanic island of Santorini is sure to provide some respite. Here, the beaches are named for the color of their sand, and the darker the color, the warmer the water. The Red and Black beaches are kept warm by Santorini’s lava.
