Mainland Greece, the historical and cultural heart of the Hellenic world, is a region steeped in history and rich in cultural heritage. Its history spans thousands of years, making it one of the world’s most important cradles of civilization.
Ancient Greece, with its city-states like Athens and Sparta, laid the foundation for Western philosophy, democracy, and the arts. The archaeological sites of Athens, Delphi, Olympia, and Mycenae serve as tangible reminders of this ancient glory.
Greek mythology, with its gods and heroes, originated here and continues to influence art and literature worldwide. The epic poems of Homer, the Iliad, and the Odyssey, were crafted in this region.
In the Byzantine era, Greece became the heart of the Eastern Orthodox Christian world. This legacy endures through magnificent churches and monasteries, such as Meteora and Mount Athos.
It’s an area of authenticity in festivals, flavours, and landscapes, and one that we are very passionate about.
