Why Visit Greece
Considered the birthplace of Western civilization. Greece has a history dating back millennia and there are plenty of antiquities, archaeological sites and monuments of distinctive prestige to explore throughout this mythical, magical country.
Biblical sites in Greece. Paul’s second missionary journey was the critical point in the religious history of Greece. He came to spread the Gospel and taught the people about Jesus at a time when the Greeks worshipped deities. It is the journey that introduced the Word of God to Europe, that founded the first churches into European soil and that converted a pagan but faithful country into the first Christian country in Europe.
Greece has it all. It is blessed with rugged mountains, sun-bleached temples, statue-stuffed museums, pristine beaches with crystal-clear waters, time worn towns, green valleys, quiet lakes and lush forests.
Island Hopping. If you are looking for variety, the Greek island is the place to find it. The Greek islands are blessed with a beautiful Mediterranean climate. They are popular for their beaches, bays, caves, ancient villages, monasteries and world-class museums.
