Three Greek destinations were included on the list of “101 Places Every Traveler Should Know” published in the November issue of renowned US magazine Travel & Leisure.
The Parthenon in Athens, Santorini’s Red Beach and the Amanzoe resort in the Peloponnese, were singled out and included on the 101 best list along with the experience one can have upon their visit to those destinations:
- Parthenon, Athens, Greece (included in More places to step back in time): “The fifth century B.C. temple devoted to Athena remains the ne plus ultra of a man’s monuments to the divine. The best view? From the rooftop bar of the Grande Bretagne Hotel (gbroofgarden.gr).”
- Red Beach, Santorini, Greece (included in More perfect beaches): “Crowded? Yes, but it’s worth braving the rocky footpath for the dramatic, crimson-hued setting at the base of a cliff.”
- Amanzoe, Peloponnese, Greece (included in More ultra-luxe hotel experiences): “Check into Amanzoe (amanresorts.com), overlooking the Aegean Sea – the newest outpost of the hotel group that redefined luxury as Zen simplicity and restraint.”
Out of the 101 places “every traveler should know,” 27 are in Europe.
The list of 101 destinations suggested to travelers is the result of Travel & Leisure’s global network of correspondents, tastemakers and thought leaders who were requested to share their most memorable experiences.
