With captivating landscapes, remote islands and a history stretching back to the dawn of civilization, Greece offers ample options regardless of the duration of your stay in the country. Those on a fortnight-long vacation can combine hiking around Mount Parnassus with island-hopping and beach stay, while those planning to spend around 5 days in Greece will have to choose between available options. Having covered the highlights of Athens, you can either head north to discover Delphi and the cliff-facing monasteries of Meteora, or settle for a boat ride to the sultry islands in the Aegean Sea.
