"Covering 6,000 acres of dunes, cedar forests and golden sand beaches, Korission Lagoon is a prime nesting site for rare flora and fauna. Come here to spot pretty pink flamingos, cormorants and Mediterranean turtles, or just sunbathe in the shadow of skyscraper-sized sand dunes overlooking the pristine golden sands of Issos Beach."
Reasons to visit Greece on a P&O Cruise holiday
There are some spectacular sites to see in Athens, including the Parthenon, Temple of Athena and the Odeon, as well as a maze of accessible streets lined with shops, restaurants, cafés and bars. Try to catch the changing of the guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier too.
The birthplace of the Olympic Games
Katakolon has plenty of shops, cafés, boutiques and restaurants to keep you busy for the day, especially with the lovely little beach. It’s the gateway to Olympia – birthplace of the Olympic Games. Over three million people a year visit the historical site and its archaeological museum, with lovely lush valleys filled with fruit and vegetable fields en route.
Greek cuisine is among some of the very best in Europe and the Greeks are immensely proud of it. A cruise to Greece is a great opportunity to get acquainted with the local fare.
Fly straight to the sunshine
Turquoise seas lap white sandy beaches, and on shore, a world of history, culture and adventure awaits. Where else can you stretch out on a sun-drenched slice of sand one day, and explore ancient temples the next? Make the most of days in the sunshine and wake up to a stunning new view every day with a Mediterranean Fly-cruise, the simple way to get to the heart of Greece.
"Tucked in the lower part of Oia, Ammoudi Bay is a tiny fishing village with a charming little dock. The water here sparkles deep blue and light turquoise, and it’s also one of the best places to find traditional Greek seafood tavernas, including the traditional Katina’s Taverna, where the tables are set just inches from the sea."
