About Greece

A journey to Greece is challenging not for what you choose to see, but for what you must choose not to see. Wrapping your head around a cultural history that spans 1000s of years would take many lifetimes.

Immerse yourself in the land of Zeus, Athena, and Apollo; of Archimedes, Socrates, Plato, and Homer; and the birthplace of Democracy. Feel the spirit of life that the locals have felt for more than 5000 years.

Thomson Experiences in Greece

ARTS & CULTURE
Come to the land that fostered some of the greatest advancements in the history of civilization- in philosophy, politics, architecture, medicine, literature, and art, to name a few. Immerse yourself in this historical hotbed of intelligentsia.
CULINARY
Start where most Greek meals start: at a local food market; attend private wine tastings; attend private, hands-on cooking lessons at the homes of local chefs; learn about the many nuances of olive oil; learn that olive oil is not just olive oil. And, without it, Greek food wouldn’t be Greek.
PHOTOGRAPHY
Explore Greece through a lens and capture images as they might have appeared when this land was the hub of the known universe. Stroll between sun-soaked, white-stucco dwellings that gleam from their hillside perches above an impossibly blue, aquamarine Aegean Sea.
MULTI-GENERATIONAL

Traveling the world with your family is like sharing a box filled with presents. The box is the world itself and the presents are the bonds that form through the experiences we share, and the perspective, patience, understanding, and tolerance we gain from expanding our horizons and seeing how other people live. There is no greater gift.

Electra Palace Hotel
 

Electra Palace Hotel

Athens

Classical in its architecture and design, blending beautifully with the noble historical buildings of the Plaka area, the hotel’s elegant luxury is complemented by the majestic views of the Acropolis that can be enjoyed from the rooftop restaurant, pool, rooms and suites. With a location in the city center and delicious contemporary Greek cuisine at the award-winning restaurant, Electra Palace Hotel is filled with old-world charm.

Kapari Natural Resort
 

Kapari Natural Resort

Santorini

With its whitewashed walls reflecting the setting sun, the exquisite minimalist design, and its cliffside setting high above Santorini’s legendary caldera... this 14-room haven is a meticulously sustainable restoration of 300-year-old cave dwellings and an architectural ode to the mystical Cycladic culture. From the infinity pool, gaze across the Aegean, and enjoy a feast of locally sourced ingredients in the renowned restaurant, including the hotel’s namesake, kapari—capers.

Kapsaliana Village Hotel
 

Kapsaliana Village Hotel

Crete

Built from the bones of a 1600 Cretan settlement, Kapsaliana Village Hotel is set on the island’s largest olive oil grove. With particular care and diligent work the olive oil mill, the church and the utility rooms were gradually transformed into rooms and suites, restaurant, swimming pool and lounge. Without any architectural distortion, the village remains a characteristic example of Cretan architecture and a unique place of natural beauty where accommodation facilities are fully harmonized with the enchanting landscape.

The greatest reward and luxury of travel is to be able to experience everyday things
as if for the first time.
