“Greece’s new distinctions show, in the best possible way, the country’s strong potential in luxury and family tourism, and the successful communication strategy of the Greek National Tourism Organization (GNTO), which aims to increase tourism flows to Greece 365 days a year,” GNTO said in an announcement.

Since the beginning of the year, Greece has received a number of awards from the UK travel industry, including the “Best Destination (Port or Country)” title and the second prize as a “Favorite Cruise Destination” at the Wave Awards 2019.
