22 Postcard-Perfect European Villages Straight Out of a Fairytale

Folegandros, Greece
Santorini’s streets sag with admirers, but on Folegandros, a nearby island in the Cyclades, you’ll find similar architecture—streets paved in slate, whitewashed buildings decorated with colorful flowers, the occasional Greek Orthodox church with a bright blue dome—without the crowds. For a secluded swim, trek to Katergo, a sheltered stretch of beach where gentle, emerald-blue waves lap the pebbly shore.

Θεματικός Τουρισμός: Ευκαιρία Για Ανάπτυξη Στην Ελλάδα Του 21ου Αιώνα.

Θεματικός Τουρισμός: Ευκαιρία Για Ανάπτυξη Στην Ελλάδα Του 21ου Αιώνα. | travelling 2 Greece | Scoop.it
Ο θεματικός τουρισμός αποτελεί τμήμα των ειδικών μορφών τουρισμού, οι οποίες χαρακτηρίζονται από την ύπαρξη ενός ειδικού κινήτρου και από την ανάπτυξη μιας αντίστοιχης ειδικής υποδομής (ζήτηση - προσφορά).
Με τον θεματικό τουρισμό, οι άνθρωποι αναζητούν ένα διαφορετικό τρόπο αναψυχής, ο οποίος συνδέεται με την διατήρηση της τοπικής κουλτούρας, την προστασία του φυσικού και ανθρωπογενούς περιβάλλοντος αλλά και με την αποφυγή της χρήσης υπηρεσιών μαζικού τουρισμού.
Ανταποκρινόμενη στην διεθνή τάση για διεύρυνση και διαφοροποίηση του τουριστικού της προϊόντος, η Ελλάδα, τα τελευταία χρόνια, προσφέρει ελκυστικά πακέτα και υπηρεσίες θεματικού τουρισμού.
Με την βοήθεια σημαντικών κρατικών επενδυτικών κινήτρων οι επιχειρηματίες δημιουργούν υποδομές και υπηρεσίες σχετικές με τον τουρισμό υγείας, τον θρησκευτικό τουρισμό, τον γαστρονομικό τουρισμό, τον αθλητικό τουρισμό, τον τουρισμό περιπέτειας, τον οικοτουρισμό αλλά και τον αγροτοτουρισμό.

Is Now The Time To Vacation In Greece? : NPR | travelling 2 Greece | Scoop.it

The Greek economy depends heavily on tourism. The crisis seems to be scaring away visitors, which would deal the economy another blow. But could the crisis create a bargain for travelers who would simultaneously be giving the Greek economy a boost?

Despite all the chaos and misery of the Greek debt crisis, the country still has some major assets: It's a stunningly beautiful place, with sunny weather, great beaches, ancient marvels and modern amenities.

Packing off to Paxos: Mariella Frostrup and family feast on the simple life in Greece

Packing off to Paxos: Mariella Frostrup and family feast on the simple life in Greece | travelling 2 Greece | Scoop.it
What do you do when it's time to swap wild nights out on the Med for a more tranquil option? Head for Paxos, says Mariella Frostrup, where remote beaches, marinated sardines for lunch and speedboat excursions fill the days.
Demetrios Georgalas's insight:

Paxos is easy to get to know and part of its appeal is how swiftly the visitor feels familiar with it. Three towns lie along the coast facing the Greek mainland. Gaios, the capital, is where the ferry comes in, and in its medley of cobbled streets you can pick up everything from a kitchen mop to a Colombian emerald.

Despite the plentiful little tourist boutiques, Gaios feels like a working town rather than a resort, one that endures the influx of sunseekers but is fully aware that by autumn, only 2,000 full-time residents will be left on the island. North of the capital lies Lakkos, a very popular harbour crowded with beautiful sailboats.

On land it is little more than a village with a couple of sophisticated bars on the seafront and a handful of traditional tavernas in the old-style squares behind.

Our favourite of the three is the aforementioned Loggos, really a hamlet with a handful of restaurants where centuries of visitors and conquerors from the Ottomans to the Italians have left an indelible and welcome mark on the local cuisine.

Greek staples such as calamari and taramasalata are augmented with dips made from split peas and smoked aubergines, as well as fabulous mussels cooked in ouzo and plenty more to keep your palate stimulated.

Greek islands, safari dreams

Greek islands, safari dreams | travelling 2 Greece | Scoop.it
Santorini is in a group of islands called the Cyclades which also include Paros, Antiparos, Naxos, Ios, Delos, Tinos, Anafi, and Folegandros. It is a very beautiful island and you will probably find the days will fly by. While all the islands look close together on a map, getting between them is not so easy. There are plenty of ferries, but few trips that would allow for a day on another island with enough time to explore. The nearest island with day return ferries is Ios.

Petralona Cave | Across Greece

Petralona Cave | Across Greece | travelling 2 Greece | Scoop.it

the Petralona Cave in Chalkidiki (Western Makedonia) is situated about 1 km to the East of the homonymous village, on the western cliffs of the ancient Kalavros mountain (~700 m height), that the inhabitants of the region call Katsika. Cave’s geographic position is about 50 km to the SE of Thessaloniki, 12 Km to the East of Kallikrateia and another 50 Km to the West of Polygyros – Chalkidiki’s capital, in an altitude of about 300 meters from the level of sea. It was found in 1959 by the inhabitant of Petralona, Mr. Philippos Hatzaridis and it became well known all over the world in 1960, when the skull of Arhanthropos was found by another inhabitant of Petralona, Mr. Christos Sarrigiannidis.
