About Greece

On April 19th, Greece opened up its borders to travellers from the US who can provide proof of vaccination, or proof of a negative COVID test at least 14 days prior to arrival. Keep in mind you also need a negative COVID test in order to return back to the US, whether or not you are vaccinated. However, this means that your travel destinations list just got a little longer! And with Greece being one of the top destinations of all time, this is perfect timing for your summer getaway.

Step back in time on a journey to Greece, where iconic ruins bring ancient history to life. Explore the awe-inspiring monuments of Athens and the stunning Cyclades islands; and run and jump in the footsteps of ancient Greek athletes at the birthplace of the Olympic Games. Then venture to the olive-covered hills and rugged coasts of the Peloponnese, where some of Homer’s Iliad and Odyssey played out; and savour the delightfully fresh flavours of Greek cuisine.

  • Tour Athens via bike at sunset
