As tempting as it is, to spend your days soaking up the sun, swimming in the clear, warm seas, under the magnificent, magical blue skies of Greece, try to see as much as you possibly can of this enchanting country.Not only to see all the amazing things that Greece has to offer but to get to know the Greeks, their customs, their traditions, their spirit, their unquenchable thirst for life.
Here are ten tips which I think will help you to do just that.

1. Know  Greece before you get there

Learn as much as you can about Greece before you visit. Search the interenet, ask people you know, who have visited Greece, to suggest things for you to see and do. Buy a book, “The Lonely Planet” and “The Rough Guide ” series are both excellent.

So instead I’ve had to be content with looking at travel guides replete with gorgeous images of sun kissed beaches, wondrous ancient monuments and monasteries which seem to touch the very clouds themselves.

As I have gazed through the plethora of things to do in Greece I decided to put together a little top ten list of all the great things I’d like to see on my next trip.
