Greece is home to one of the world's oldest civilisations and historically has had an enormous impact on culture, philosophy and law. The history of this nation still draws in the visitors, although there is an equal number of people who go just to enjoy the sizzling summer temperatures and the crystal clear waters. The country is located at the crossroads of Africa, Europe, Asia and the Middle East and each of these continents has left its mark on this diverse and interesting nation.
As a holiday destination, Greece can offer something for everyone. Cruising around the many islands is a popular pastime, as evidenced by the number of timeshare opportunities available for people wanting to do just that. With around 1400 islands dotted around the Mediterranean, Ionian and Aegean Seas, 227 of which are inhabited, it's possible to head off and find your very own secluded and private beach, many of which are accessible only from the sea. With the 11th longest coastline in the world, Greece offers plenty of beaches for the sun worshipper.
Despite the financial problems suffered by the country recently, tourism is still thriving and the timeshare resales market is as buoyant as ever. People are interested in timeshare in the country and its islands because there is just so much to do here, so if you are looking to sell on your timeshare, a specialist timeshare resales company will be able to find you a suitable buyer with the minimum of hassle.
Some of the bigger islands, such as Crete, Rhodes, Cephalonia and Corfu, are holiday destinations in their own right, with their own distinct atmosphere and take on life. Crete, the largest and most populous of the islands, has always been a significant influence on the cultural heritage of Greece and the legend of the Minotaur and the Labyrinth at the Palace of Knossos has been told and retold to generations of children from across the world.
A visit to Greece is not complete without exploring the ancient buildings of Athens, many of which feature throughout the innumerable legends for which the country is famous. The Acropolis and the Parthenon are at the top of most visitors' must see list, but there are plenty of lesser known sites that are worthy of attention and plenty of museums that put the vast and interesting history of Greece into perspective.
