“The more one travels in Greece, the more there is to discover and experience,” Alternate Tourism Minister Elena Kountoura said in an interview with TUI online media.
Kountoura talked about tourism growth, the variety of coastlines and the islands, the culture and cuisine of Greece.
“We have a very personal welcome for every visitor. We invite them to a journey of authentic highly- personalized experiences and we encourage them to expose themselves to the many choices that we offer and that we can spoil them with,” she underlined.
“Greece is the land of beauty, culture and light: a light of life, good spirits and joy derived from the warmness of the sun, our heart-felt hospitality and the liveliness of the Greek people who will engage to make you feel like home and have a truly wonderful experience, while you explore the treasures of our charming destinations,” she added.
Kountoura suggested to every visitor who chooses one or more destinations in the country to visit monuments of world heritage and culture, historical religious and spiritual sites and also not miss the chance to explore fabulous beaches if they love swimming and sailing and the many incredible opportunities for sports and recreation in rivers and lakes across the country.
“Our visitors should not miss the chance to attend festivals and local celebrations in nearby destinations that take place at the time. Our museums, art galleries and major cultural events such as the Athens Epidaurus Festival that lasts three months in the summertime, attract visitors from around the world. Daily, across Greece, festivals, local festivities, fairs and village feasts take place in open-air theaters, castles and squares, and include art performances, music, dances, local customs, incredible food and local tastes, that highlight the local culture and identity, and bring people together to celebrate life, the Alternate Tourism Minister noted adding: “This is the Greece I love.”
