“Greece may still be fiscally flabby but it’s shaping up to be one of the world’s hottest destinations this summer.”
In an article titled “10 Places You Need To Visit in Greece this Summer”, travel reporter Anthony Grant refers to Athens as the top choice, followed by Lake Vouliagmeni in Attica and Thessaloniki in second and third position respectively.
“In recent years Athens has emerged as a great city break destination and the country as a whole still offers better value for your money than other Mediterranean hot spots like Spain and Italy,” Grant says.
