Archaeological sites and Monuments

Greece has a long and significant history of more than 4,000 years. There is no place without significant monuments, findings and museums that attract thousands of visitors every year.

We are the cradle of civilization, art and science. The major philosophers of history, the father of medicine, or democracy have their origins form a world known location of Greece.

During your visit to one of the islands you should definitely reserve the time to explore the beauties of archaeological sites like the Asclipiion (4th century) at Kos, homeland of Hippocrates, or the Temple of Aphea Athena, close to Agia Marina (Aegina).

The entire island of Delos is on its own a significant archaeological gem, the birthplace -according to our mythology- of the twin gods Apollo and Artemis.

Visit the ruined sanctuary and the museum, the agoras, the gymnasiums and the palaestras, is so easy to get there just next to the island of Mykonos.

Almost every Greek Island has an archaeological museum where you can admire perfectly preserved findings and historical treasures unique of their kind.

The Ionian Islands are full of imposing castles and fortresses (like Corfu and Zakynthos with Venetian and Byzantine influences).

You can turn yourself into a noble or one of St John’s Knights from the Byzantine period wondering around the Old City of Rhodes.
