Continental Greece

The Greek mainland is a valid alternative to the islands, equally fascinating but less visited and much cheaper. The sea is the same, blue, and clean; Wonderful beaches are found both to the east, particularly in the Chalkidiki Peninsula, and to the west. Archaeological sites abound a little across Greece, but if you only have time for one or two bets on Delphi and Olympia. A singular attraction is the Meteore complex, six ancient monasteries perched atop imposing sandstone towers.
