What to see and do largely depends on the location of your Greece vacation home. If staying in the capital Athens then it's likely that your trip will be focused on museums and historic landmarks. Top attractions in Athens include the Acropolis, which includes the famed Parthenon, the Ancient Agora and Syntagma Square.
Olympia in the Peloponnese is another must-see for those who take an interest in history. Olympia is the site of the first Olympic games, which was held in 776BC. The wider area is also worth exploring, and boasts delights such as the historic town of Sparta, Elea beach and Pylos, an old town with French-inspired architecture.
The largest of the Greek islands, Crete, is a wonderful location for your Greece vacation rental. Agios Pavlos is a stunning beach on the south coast, perfect for swimming and relaxing. If you're seeking some natural beauty then head to the Samaria Gorge, which offers stunning hikes and is open throughout the whole of summer. The capital of the island is Heraklion. This ancient city has much to offer in the way of attractions including the Palace of Knossos, the old Venetian Walls and the Historical Museum of Crete.
Santorini is another beautiful spot for your Greece vacation home. The volcanic island offers stunning sunset views from the cliff-side towns of Oia and Fira. Snorkelling and diving are popular activities to enjoy at your leisure from the comfort of your Greece vacation home in Santorini. If you plan on exploring the towns, then there's lots to see and do in Fira. The Prehistoric Museum, the old port, and the Santos winery are all good places to start your exploration of this Greek gem.
