Holidays in Greece and Cyprus

Holidays in Greece and Cyprus, a separate country but very similar to Greece.

As far as Greece holidays are concerned, tourists are truly spoilt for choice. History buffs will marvel at the richness of the nation's heritage. Beach bums will find paradise along the coastline of the mainland or off the shores of one of the idyllic Greek islands. Party animals will find ample night life in buzzing city hotspots like Athens. If you are struggling to narrow the choices down, here's a quick look at the best of what the islands have to offer:

Crete is one of Greece's larger islands and boasts a strong character and identity all of its own. Life on Crete tends to be slightly slower in pace than on the mainland and it remains a popular favourite among tourists and travelers, which means you are sure to find everything you need to enjoy a comfortable stay. One good trick for finding the best food in Crete is to ignore the touts and head to quieter backstreets. Look for the places the locals frequent, often tucked away in quiet corners, and you'll get great grub at friendlier prices.

Cephalonia is a gem among the Greek isles. Famous among Greeks for its olive pie and lemon soufflé, Cephalonia has it all - wonderful food, beautiful beaches, scenic countryside and an incredibly warm and friendly bunch of residents. If you need further convincing take a look at the film 'Captain Corelli's Mandolin' - you'll get a preview of Cephalonia's breathtaking scenery as well as learning a little more about its turbulent past. Warning: a week won't be long enough, but stay for longer and you may never want to leave.

Whilst not part of Greece, the island of Cyprus boasts similar characteristics and has a perfect blend of both Greek and Turkish cultures. In this way it is a truly unique holiday destination. If you are already familiar with many of the Greek islands, a holiday to Cyprus could be the perfect way to mix things up a little.
