A country full of culture, astounding archaeological sites, extreme island beauty, deserted beaches and bucolic villages, it is safe to say that Greece has it all.
Bustling with adventure, Greece is brilliant for walking and trekking. You can hike up volcanoes, rock climb along the coastlines and head up towards villages hidden in the mountains for a taste of the real local life. What's more, Greeces picturesque islands boast some of the best parties in the Mediterranean and its fresh local cuisine and cloudy ouzo will leave you saying ‘opa!’and craving for more.
With hundreds of tiny beaches, horseshoe harbours and pocket-sized fishing villages, Greece may be one of the best countries in the world for sailing. Dive into the stunning clear waters, snorkel through caves, relax on deck with delicious fresh food and carve out memories that will last a lifetime.

It is safe to say that the best time to visit Greece is spring and early summer (mid-April to mid-June) or autumn (September to mid-October). The summer months (July - August) can be horrendously hot (heat waves of 100°F/+40C are routine), crowds of tourists ruin the experience and inflated prices will hurt the wallet.
At the time of writing, you do not need a Visa to visit Greece if you are from the UK or US for less than 90 days. However, please check the full guidelines on the embassy website before you travel. For UK citizens this is the Foreign Travel Advice section of https://www.gov.uk
