Greece - Europe - Travel to Greece - Only Once Today

Greece is a country that speaks to the imagination, especially if you’re a philosopher or a historic. You can’t say ‘Greece’ without thinking about the ancient Greek mythology with their abundance of Gods and legends. Greece is also the cradle of our culture and most of our knowledge. Philosophy, language, art, sports, … Many of these have their origin in ancient Greece. This means you’ll be able to visit a lot of historic sites and learn a lot of history when traveling to Greece.

Greece can be traveled easily by car or by train. Even the islands can be reached by ferry or an airplane. If you plan on traveling to Greece with a rail pass, Interrail has a rail pass for the Greek island hoppers.

Another big part of history is situated in Greece: lesbian history. The word lesbian is derived from the legend that plays on the beautiful island of Lesbos with the main role played by the ancient Greek poet Sappho. Greece is also the setting for some lesbian festivals and of course an LGBT pride festival in Athens, which is one of the most lesbian-friendly cities in Europe.
