Greece

Greece Isles
Greece is, of course, the land of ancient sites and architectural treasures — the Acropolis in Athens, the amphitheater of Epidaurus, and the reconstructed palace at Knossos among the best known.

But Greece is much more: It offers age-old spectacular natural sights, for instance — from Santorini’s caldera to the gray pinnacles of rock of the Meteora — and modern diversions ranging from elegant museums to luxury resorts.

It can be bewildering to plan your trip with so many options vying for your attention. Take us along and we’ll do the work for you. We’ve traveled the country extensively and have chosen the very best that Greece has to offer.

Your AMT American Express Travel Insider has explored the archaeological sites, visited the museums, inspected the hotels, reviewed the tavernas and ouzeries, and scoped out the beaches. So let’s go.
