Hello, dear readers. You are going to visit Greece, but you do not know where to look, then we will answer your question!
Greece is an incredibly beautiful country with fascinating history and colorful folklore. There is a place for everyone: from strange coastal towns to alpine mountain villages or multinational metropolises. In this article we present top cities in Greece, which are sure to be worth visiting to see this wonderful country from different angles.
One of the cities that most fully reflect the rich and diverse history of Greece is Nafplion. This city is also one of the most elegant and romantic places in the country. It is located in the heart of historical Argolis in the administrative district of Peloponnese and bears the cultural heritage of Ancient Greece and Venice of the 15-17 centuries. The dawn of the city came in the 1800s, when it served as the first capital of modern Greece. The city has magnificent neoclassical mansions, beautiful Venetian architecture and picturesque lanes. Its landscape is complemented by two Venetian castles, Palamandy and Acronafple, built on two hills. It is definitely worth visiting Burji Castle at the entrance to Napflion harbor, which offers an incredible view of the city and is a great place for a romantic date.
This bizarre city is one of the most popular places in Epirus, in eastern Greece, where tourists seek to get in summer. The city is built as an amphitheater on the slopes of the mountain “Pezovolos” surrounded by lush greenery and blue sea. You will certainly like its charming and colorful buildings on the promenade and square stone square, and do not forget to visit the ruins of an old Venetian castle on the hill. In addition, some of the best beaches in Greece, such as Valtos and Lihnos, are not far from here and can be reached by boat from Pargi port.
This town of only 12000 people is located in central Greece. It is located at the foot of one of the most stunning peaks of Meteora, part of a complex of mountain formations protected by UNESCO heritage. The history of Kalambaki is closely connected with the history of Ancient Greece and the Byzantine era. Here you will find many different Christian churches and chapels. You can stroll through the narrow streets, the old quarter of the city, most of which is built under the shadow of the rocks, and have beautiful, traditional Macedonian architecture.
A very popular place among sports and nature lovers, Karpenisi is a small town, located in a remote and sparsely populated area of central Greece, which is called ‘Switzerland Minor’. The natural beauty of the surrounding mountains, alpine forests and rivers with white water make it an ideal place to get away from reality. With its small size, Carpenisie offers a decent choice of traditional housing, bakeries and restaurants, and has a large variety of local delicacies such as leek and prosciutto sausages.
