Greece is made up thousands of islands throughout the Aegean and Ionian seas. The many islands and beaches make Greece a perfect destination for water babies; regular windsurfing and sailing events are held. Greece is known for its beautiful beaches, from the black sands of Santorini to the party resorts of Mykonos.
Athens, the capital, is steeped in history and culture with landmarks including the 5th-century B.C. Acropolis citadel with the Parthenon temple. Athens is also home to multiple adventure runs and obstacle races.
