Introduction

Greece is considered the “birthplace of western civilization,” a country where even now mythology has traces of influence, and Mount Olympus is still the throne of Zeus.

Here, you can drink ouzo at all hours in the Plaka of Athens, or revisit the route taken by Odysseus through the islands.

Explore the vineyards of Samos and the Peloponnese, run the route of the fabled Pheidippides from 490 BC, and learn why it’s best to keep your palms to yourself when traveling in Greece.
