What to expect in Greece:
Home to some of the oldest and most important historical sites in the world, Greece is so much more than a holiday destination. Explore the ancient ruins of Athens and lose yourself in stories of gods, gorgons and Greek heroes for a family-friendly holiday back into the past and a history lesson the kids will love.
On top of its historical heritage, Greece has an impressive gastronomic pedigree. With its typically Mediterranean specialities – such as moussaka, taramasalata and souvlaki – it’s a dream destination for foodies. Go for an all-inclusive resort on the coast and treat your kids to baklava while you savour sumptuous local olives, freshly-caught seafood and a chilled glass of ouzo next to the Mediterranean Sea.

What to visit in Greece:
Greece is lapped by the warm waters of the Mediterranean, the Ionian Sea and the Aegean Sea, making it the dream destination for lovers of mermaids, beaches and antiquities. Its capital city, Athens, combines ancient history with a modern lifestyle. Islands such as Zante, Crete, Santorini and Corfu each offer a different vision of Greek tradition. Whether you want to explore the mainland or the islands, taking your camera is a must. Greece has everything you need for a romantic getaway in the sun. Club Med offers a wide range of holidays in Greece to meet your travel needs.
Inhale the enticing perfume of Greece’s wild countryside as you head off to discover the Meteora Monastery from your Gregolimano Club Med resort. Linking heaven and earth, this monument is perched on top of a spectacular rocky peak. Then head off for Athens and its Acropolis, the legendary hill where the Parthenon has stood for thousands of years. Aboard Club Med 2, sail off to the Cyclades and the countless azure tones of Mykonos and Santorini. Two icons of a Greek paradise for you to discover island by island, archaeological site by archaeological site, during your all-inclusive holiday.
During your stay in Greece, get closer to history by visiting the Museum of Eretria in Evia. This seaside town houses a museum with a large collection of artefacts and ancient remains. Your all-inclusive Greek odyssey then takes you north, to Thessaloniki, Greece's second largest city. A young city, proud of its historical heritage. Discover the amazing curves of the church of Agios Pavlos, or visit the fascinating archaeological museum: the mosaics on display here will knock you off your feet.
As well as its natural and historical heritage, Greece also has an impressive cultural and gastronomic heritage. With its typically Mediterranean specialities, it’s a dream destination for gourmets and those who like to try new things. Make sure you take a glass of chilled ouzo, accompanied by a seafood platter, dakos or moussaka on the shores of Santorini, in the shade of an olive tree.
Greece holidays with kids
Greece is the perfect destination to awaken the spirit of adventure in aspiring archaeologists. Take the children for a hike around Meteora to discover this monument that defies the laws of both time and gravity. Then head east towards beautiful Thessaloniki to continue your journey back in time. Pay the archaeological museum a visit, where hundreds of objects from ancient Greece are on display. Finally, take in a sunset, sitting with your tribe on the walls beneath the Trigoniou tower.
Greece isn’t just a cultural destination; it’s a playground for all ages, too, both by land and by sea. Escape to the Sporades islands in the Aegean Sea. There’s nothing like a family game of volleyball on the island's beach that provided the backdrop for the film Mamma Mia. Back at your resort of Gregolimano, visit the countryside around nearby Euboea and Gialtra, ideal for a family trek.
