Greece ideal 2012 holiday setting
Though Greece may have been in the news for all of the wrong reasons over the past year, holidaying in the country remains vibrant. With a great climate, huge amounts of culture to explore and a recent drop in prices, holidays to destinations such as Mykonos, Athens or Crete are safe, affordable and exciting.
Whilst there has been some unrest in Greece, holidaying in this country and exploring its ancient culture is still regarded as safe. Tourist resorts and the many islands of the country remain largely unaffected by the economic concerns other than the prices falling, making 2012 the ideal year to head to the place of Medusa, temples and acropolises.
Greece is certainly famed around the world for its culture and, in the same way that Italy is a Mecca for cultural exploration, Greece has a huge lure for those wanting to explore the country's ancient culture. There are temples and acropolises everywhere to explore, and whether holidaymakers visit the Athens Parthenon or Crete's Palace of Knossos, there are sites hundreds of years old to study and enjoy.
With the economy making budgeting crucial for many people wanting to holiday, finding a cheap destination is vital. With Greece seeing hotel and flight price drops, enjoying this famed country is very affordable.
