3.  Crete

Known as the “Mediterranean jewel”, Crete is the largest of the Greek islands and is rich in Greek mythology (it is said to be the birthplace of Zeus). The beaches here are nothing short of amazing and the architecture in towns such as Chania, Heraklion, and Rethymno, is magnificent. If you are thinking about vacationing here, be sure to check out some of the ancient ruins such as those in Minoan and explore the less-developed architecture around the capital of Cretan, Heraklion, located on the south side of the island.

4.  Athens

One of the most vibrant and diverse cities in all of Greece, Athens is worth at least an entire day of your trip. Here, you can explore the many ancient archaeological ruins and take in all of the history at places such as the Parthenon, the Temple of Olympian Zeus, or the Theatre of Dionysos. 

This city is so diverse because it is a mix of Greek history and modern culture. Much of the country’s business exists here. Don’t forget about the energetic nightlife available here. There is something to appeal to every interest of the modern Instagram traveler.

This island can be a hot tourist spot, but there are definitely places where you can enjoy the views without the crowds.
